Watch Of The Day: Start Your Engines And Place Your Bets
Designer Todd Snyder and iconic watchmaker, Timex, continue to release some undeniably badass watches at prices so reasonable your head will spin. Possibly my favorite Timex x Todd Snyder release is this roulette wheel and racecar-inspired timepiece – The Blackjack Watch.
Inspired by Formula One cars of the 1950s and 60s, iconic speed gauges, and the roulette wheels of midcentury Monaco casinos – this watch gives a nod to the past while embodying Todd Snyder’s modern New York designer style standards.
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 seated in a 40mm case. This edgy timepiece – the latest in an ongoing collaboration between the celebrated menswear designer and the iconic American watch brand – is an homage to the stylish drivers of Formula One in the 1960s and 70s. Nodding to speed dials and roulette wheels, the Blackjack evokes the noir glamour of fast cars, hot tires and midcentury Monaco casinos – all in a sleek New York style.
When you see The Blackjack, it all starts with an attention-grabbing dial that’s unlike anything you’ve seen. With quarter-alternating blue and white on the outside, red minute markers, and two sub-rings for hour markers – this watch mimics its speed gauge inspiration but meets a new level of design versatility. Todd Snyder successfully designed this timepiece to dress up with a suit or wear down for a casual look, making it a perfect addition to anyone’s timepiece collection.
Right now, you can get this incredible timepiece for just $138.
