Timex and Huckberry Unveil Retro-Inspired Dive Watch
It’s a modern take on 1970s-era Timex dive watches.
Timex collabs keep getting more intriguing. They’ve partnered with the likes of Todd Snyder, Mr. Porter, and Amsterdam-based fashion line Patta to great success. They’ve also created their own line of high-end watches, the elegant American Documents collection, which runs in the decidedly atypical—for Timex—$500 range.
This watch was modeled after a 1970s-era Timex skindiver. But it’s been remade for modern needs—Huckberry worked together with the Waterbury, Connecticut-based watchmaker to resurrect the piece, a la the mega-popular Q-Timex, but give it 21st century advantages.
Per the watch’s Huckberry listing, here are a few more details:
- Super brushed dial adds a nice touch of modern style
- Includes both a NATO nylon strap for active adventure and a genuine leather strap for everything else
- 100 meters of water-resistance
- Easy to use, quartz movement that requires minimal attention but is always reliable
- Rotating bezel with minute markers on it
- Highly scratch- and shatter-resistant mineral glass
- Huckberry-branded tree as the 12 marker and on the case back
- Luminous hour hands and dial for visibility in low light
That’s right, the time to grab one of these is now, as they are in limited supply—only 700 made.
