Introducing Our Timex x YMC MK1™ Watch

YMC’s Fraser Moss and Jimmy Collins have joined forces with Timex to elevate one of our standard-bearing tool watches with their own streetwise sensibilities. Originally designed for military use, the MK1™ watch has been updated here to suit the modern man with an accurate quartz movement, maintaining the lightweight 36mm resin case and highly-legible dial that first made the watch so perfect for timekeeping in the field.

“I have always believed that you have to look back to move forward,” Moss says of YMC, which he co-founded in 1995. “We felt honored to collaborate with Timex; it made total sense, they have so much history but have still successfully remained a timeless product. These watches are beyond trends.”

Timex’s co-branding with YMC is displayed proudly at the center of the watch dial, as well as on the case back with YMC’s illustrated tiger emblem and bold logo printing inside the monochromatic slip-through strap.

FOR THE WOMAN WHO’S GIVEN YOU EVERYTHING: OUR MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE

Every year, we struggle to find the perfect gift for mom. She’s not difficult to shop for; it’s just hard to find anything that can match all she’s done for us over the years. (Let’s admit that moms are basically superheroes.)

Because Mom’s style is completely unique, the solution is getting her something thoughtful and well-crafted.

HER ANTHEM IS “INDEPENDENT WOMEN”

Your mom’s catchphrase is, “I’ve got this.” There was never a leaky faucet, science fair project or giant work presentation that she couldn’t handle. You need a gift that is just as strong and resilient as the woman you’re lucky enough to call “Mom.”

Our Waterbury Women’s collection was inspired by the fierce women who worked in our first factory back in 1854. Paving the way for women in the workplace, these women helped craft timepieces that helped disrupt a 300-year-old industry. Honoring 165 years of heritage and commitment to craftsmanship, our Waterbury Women’s collection reflects the beauty and strength within.

FOR WHEN MOM IS ALWAYS BEATING HER OWN PERSONAL BEST

She buys a class pass to spin, mastered just about every yoga pose and constantly impresses her kickboxing instructor. Your mom somehow manages to squeeze fitness into her already-busy routine, so she needs a watch that can keep up with her.

Built to handle whatever life throws at it, our IRONMAN® collection has been the standard in digital watches for over 30 years. Our modern IRONMAN® watches blend design and function, made for everyday wear with all of the features you’ve come to expect from a Timex digital watch—including a countdown timer, customizable alarm and water-resistance up to 100 meters.

BECAUSE YOUR MOM IS ALWAYS IN VOGUE

Your mom is always the first to jump on the latest trends and has even been known to start a few of her own. She’s fashionable, yet sensible. Basically, she’s your style icon.

Whether your mom prefers minimalist chic or leans towards glamour, our Milano collection is a reliable wardrobe staple as trusted as a favorite pair of jeans. A classic gift that is as practical as it is stylish, Mom can dress our Milano collection up or keep it casual with its simple dial and sleek bracelet or strap options.

A CLASSIC GIFT FOR MOM

There’s something that’s true about moms: They’re the person that keeps us out of trouble, shares our secrets and seemed genuinely excited about that macaroni necklace we gave her for Mother’s Day. (To moms everywhere: We’re so sorry about that one.) So let’s step it up this year with a gift that’s definitely a classic and perfect for every awesome mom.

Help Mom put her best look forward with our Transcend collection. We put a spin on “back to basics” with a watch that is well-suited for every occasion and every mom. We found several ways to rock the ultra-thin case—from understated grey tones with subtle crystal details to watches with a mother-of-pearl dial.

Whatever you choose, we made a thoughtful gift just for mom—in designs created to fit any lifestyle. And once you find the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, we’d love to see it! Tag us in your posts using @timex and #timex!
