Timex launched the latest collections including a special first preview of the TIMEX MARLIN AUTOMATIC and TODD SNYDER series. Located at Grand Indonesia Shopping Centre, Timex is set to join watch market in the country through its flagship store which opened in August this year. The event was hosted by a group of selected public figure such as Ernanda Putra , Tasya Tazakka and Kevin Julio.

The most awaited limited Todd Snyder series is lavish and is suited to the high-end tastes of the urban man. Stealthy and sophisticated, the new Blackjack Watch from Todd Snyder and Timex is inspired by a sporty 1970s style from the Timex archives, updated in a modern blackout palette. This edgy timepiece – the latest in an ongoing collaboration between the celebrated menswear designer and the iconic American watch brand – pays homage to the stylish drivers of Formula One in the 1960s and 70s.

As a nod to speed dials and roulette wheels, the Blackjack evokes the glamour of fast cars, hot tyres and midcentury Monaco casinos – all in sleek New York style. The Todd Snyder + Timex Blackjack Watch borrows distinctive details from that archival original, with urbane updates in the form of a black finished case and military inspired nylon strap. Additional features include 50 Meter Water Resistance and Quartz Movement.

On the other hand, The Marlin Automatic is a reissue of the classic Marlin design now featuring a mechanical movement powered by the wearer’s physical activity. The mainspring is wound automatically as you move and provides energy to run the watch.

With a specification of Automatic Movement, Date indicator, and 40mm Case Size / 20mm Lug Width, the watch is covered by Stainless Steel Case, Domed Acrylic Crystal and it’s durable with  Water Resistant feature up to to 30 meters sink.

With a sleek dial, domed acrylic crystal and a rich leather strap, TIMEX stayed true to the mid-century design of its original Marlin — a watch known for its ability to ‘take a licking and keep on ticking.’ The new design features an exhibition case back, putting the Marlin’s movement on full display. Functional and beautiful – the watch features 21 jewels inserted at friction points, which keep the mechanics aligned and increase the accuracy of the watch.

These new Timex timepieces are exclusively available at Timex Flagship store and online at www.thewatch.co/timex in limited quantities only.
