Timex x Finisterre Bring Function and Form to the Seaside

Time and tide wait for no man.

Luckily, the Timex® x Finisterre® Tide Tracker keeps track of both.

Crafted with our seafaring folk in mind, this newly released timepiece is the result of our first collaboration with Finisterre: a Cornwall, UK-based outdoor apparel company that designs functional and sustainable lifestyle products for the cold-water surf community. In the years since the brand’s establishment in 2003, Finisterre has made a point to put product, environment, and people first, earning itself a B Corporation certification and—as far as we’re concerned—the reputation as a fellow industry pioneer.

Today’s release of the Timex x Finisterre Tide Tracker brings an added layer of function and form to the coast, the topic of which we were excited to discuss with Finisterre Founder Tom Kay all the way from the “end of the earth” itself, St. Agnes, Cornwall.

Tom, we’d love to hear a bit about the Finisterre brand from your perspective. What makes it tick?

“I founded Finisterre in 2003, born from my love of the sea and a belief that there was a better way of making product. Since day one, we have committed to this, always challenging what has gone before, pushing innovation and sustainability in all that we do. We became a B Corps certified business in 2018.”

What inspired you to expand the Finisterre product line to include a wristwatch?

“I’ve always loved watches. I lead quite a rugged life; I’m in the sea as often as I can be and am a volunteer helm of the RNLI lifeboat here in St. Agnes, so any watch I wear gets quite a beating! I wanted to design a watch that could cope with these challenges—one you could wear every day no matter what, yet wasn’t too bulky.”

What are the ways in which this wristwatch encapsulates Finisterre’s ethos?

“It’s quite low-profile, tough, and obviously waterproof. It has a unique tidal movement so—at a glance—you can know the state of the tide for the coast/beach you set it to. I love this; no matter where I am, I know the state of the tide for my local beach. There is a connection to the sea—this is what Finisterre is all about, our ethos. We believe by connecting people to the sea, we can inspire people to protect it. The canvas strap is also made from #tide recycled ocean material and we have engraved the back of the casing.”

What was it that intrigued you most about collaborating with Timex to bring this project to fruition?

“Timex’s reputation for beautifully crafted, hard-wearing, yet accessible watches made them the ideal partner to collaborate with on the design of the watch. The whole process took about two years, and it was a privilege to work with the team at Timex.”

The Tide Tracking feature is one of the most exciting things about the Timex x Finisterre watch. What was your thought process behind its incorporation?

“Yes, this is my favourite–and arguably the most defining—feature of the watch. The idea was to create a watch that, as well as being practical, would also emotively connect the wearer to the sea. The cyan blue tide hand is on a tidal cycle; this is set for your favourite beach/coast, so anytime you look at the watch—and you could be miles from that place—you can see the state of the tide and be taken there. Or you can plan your day around the right tide height for the best surf.”

Why do you believe followers of both brands will appreciate the Timex x Finisterre collaboration?

“I think there is a shared ethos of enduring product that has been brought to life in a unique timepiece that’s both practical and romantic.”

Where was the first place you headed with your own Timex x Finisterre Tide Tracker?

“I’ve been wearing the original sample for some time now and it is truly a great product. I went in the sea as soon as I got my hands on it!”

Timex Takes Care of the Earth with the Peanuts Gang

What does it mean to take care of the earth? For Timex®, it means crafting wrist-hugging watches that reflect the sustainable future our big, green planet needs to keep on spinning. Featuring everyone’s favorite beagle, Charles Shultz’s iconic Snoopy, today’s launch of the Timex x Take Care with Peanuts™ collaboration reminds us all to hit “pause,” appreciate the beauty of the world around us, and make positive lifestyle choices that show compassion for our environment by way of three iconic styles: the Marlin® Automatic, Timex Standard, and Timex Weekender.

True Peanuts fans know that this is far from our first collaboration with the gang. Snoopy, Woodstock, and good ole Charlie Brown have all found their way across plenty of Timex dials in years past; Snoopy dons his cloak and black domino mask as the Masked Marvel on our much-loved M79 Automatic, for example; Woodstock gets the gang in motion on a fresh interpretation of our iconic Marlin®; and together, the two have appeared on festive, holiday-inspired iterations of our Timex Standard on more than one occasion. Our commemorative Take Care with Peanuts collaboration is, however, the first in Peanuts Worldwide’s three-part initiative promoting a trifecta we’re proud to stand behind: care for yourself, care for each other, and, of course, care for the earth.

As a reminder to honor and reconnect with the home we all share, cheerful tones of vibrant green make a splash across each watch throughout the collection—a color currently on trend for a number of reasons, a rise in mainstream environmentalism among the ones we’re most excited about. From a vivid second hand on our Marlin® Automatic to a blue-hued INDIGLO® Backlight on our Standard and Weekender, earth-inspired colorways complement authentic Peanuts graphics, featuring Snoopy treating the planet with kindness and respect.

But when you glance down at one of these watches wrapped comfortably around your wrist, the “Go Green” color palette won’t be the only element to inspire you to slow down, remain present, and take time for what matters most. Each collectible timepiece is mindfully detailed with sustainable materials where possible, and we’re hopeful that the techniques used to bring these styles to life will similarly inspire you to Take Care in your own way. Be it stepping outside to enjoy some fresh air, or finally drafting plans for that DIY backyard compost bin, rest assured that there are countless ways in which we can all show ourselves and the planet some love. After all, this is your time we’re talking about here. Who are we to tell you how to spend it?

Both our Marlin® Automatic—featuring a 21-jewel movement with a 40-hour power reserve—and our tried-and-true Timex Standard incorporate Ecco® DriTan™ Leather straps that rely upon revolutionary water-saving technology throughout the tanning and finishing stages. It’s a method we first adopted for our Expedition North collection, which not only maintains the quality you expect from Timex, but also takes steps to actively lessen our environmental impact. Our INDIGLO® Timex Weekender, on the other hand, boasts eco-friendly slip-thru straps thoughtfully crafted from recycled plastic to prevent unnecessary waste from ending up in landfills. With a sweetly situated Snoopy on the dial’s smiling face, this watch is also 30-meters water resistant, a feature that has you covered no matter how hands-on your earth-friendly practices get.

Inspired by Snoopy’s message of sustainability? Browse the full Timex x Take Care with Peanuts collection and receive your watch in recyclable, all-paper packaging—a clean-and-green finishing touch that shares the kind of nostalgia, optimism, and love for community that only the Peanuts gang can.
