Spring Newness

Every spring we launch a new collection of watches for men and women that continue our passion for watchmaking and innovation. And this year is no different. We’ve added new timepieces to popular collections including the Waterbury and MK1™, as well as new launches for Variety™ and the solar-powered Expedition® Solar Ranger.

WATERBURY TRADITIONAL 34MM STAINLESS STEEL BRACELET WATCH

This year’s Waterbury Collection continues to honor our 1854 watchmaking roots and a time when how you made something was just as important as what you made. The Waterbury Women’s Traditional provides an update to a true classic and is well-suited for everyday wear. Discover the rose gold-tone stainless steel case with cream dial and the two-toned stainless steel case with a cream dial. Each has a 34mm case and INDIGLO® backlight to provide an elegant women’s timepiece that is perfect for the office or a night out.

Waterbury Traditional Chronograph 42mm Leather Strap Watch

Our Men’s Waterbury Traditional continues an ageless design that uses carefully stitched leather and solid stainless steel construction that honors our heritage of authentic watchmaking. The chronograph features a watch/date window, 42mm case, 20mm lug, genuine leather strap and is water resistant to 50m. The finish with cream dial produces a refined men’s dress watch gentlemen will cherish.

MK1 Supernova™ Chronograph 42mm Leather Strap Watch

After the success of the 2017 Fairfield Chrono Supernova™ we decided to continue its evolution by adding the Supernova™ technology to our popular MK1 model. This watch features a thin layer of perforated pad printed phosphorus material that is placed over the dial and allows light to pass through, creating a unique way to illuminate the dial. The MK1™ Chrono Supernova™ features a date window, stainless steel case, acrylic lens and fabric strap.

Variety™ 34mm Leather Strap Watch Box Set

For women who like to switch up their style, we offer the new Variety Collection. The Variety boxed sets allow women to show the many sides of her character. With interchangeable top rings and slip-thru straps, women have multiple options to customize her watch wardrobe.

Expedition Ranger Solar 43mm Leather Strap Watch

This spring, our Expedition Collection gets a burst of sunlight. The Expedition Solar Ranger features solar movement functionality to create an environmentally-friendly timepiece that can be charged through indoor fluorescent light or outdoor sunlight. The Ranger is available in rich tan, brown and black genuine leather straps with silver-tone cases and black, blue and green dial colors.

NHL® Tribute Collection: Midseason

With the NHL 2018-19 season in the midst of its exciting stretch run, it’s time to look closer at the division races and see which storylines will lead to playoff berths. Many teams are still in the hunt for a playoff spot and here are division races to keep an eye on.

Tampa Bay Lightning Gamer Watch from Timex Tribute Collection

Atlantic Division

Last year’s two top finishers, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Boston Bruins, again lead the way but two of Canada’s storied franchises, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens, also have an eye on the postseason. While Tampa Bay holds a commanding lead, time will tell if they have the stamina to fight off the contenders all the way to June.

New York Islanders Old School Watch from Timex Tribute Collection

Metropolitan

This division is truly up for grabs as just a handful of points separate the top five teams. The razor-thin margin among the defending champion Washington Capitals, Carolina Hurricanes, Columbus Blue Jackets, New York Islanders and Pittsburgh Penguins ensure that this division race will go down to the wire.

Nashville Predators Price watch from the Timex Tribute Collection

Central

Currently, the Winnipeg Jets and Nashville Predators top the division but don’t count out the St. Louis Blues just yet. The Dallas Stars and Minnesota Wild have some ground to makeup but this is the time of year when streaks start and either one could disrupt the current balance of power.

Calgary Flames Acclaim watch from the Timex Tribute Collection

Pacific

The Calgary Flames and San Jose Sharks have staged a classic race for first place down the stretch, trading places on several days. However, last year’s Stanley Cup® finalist the Vegas Golden Knights and the upstart Arizona Coyotes are lurking in the shadows and would be strong challengers in the postseason.

Show your support for your favorite NHL team right on your wrist. Timex helps NHL fans honor their team with the Timex Tribute® Collection. Complement your jersey (or your ‘sweater,’ depending on where you’re reading this) with a Timex Tribute watch. Even when you don the full uniform, you can still subtly show your support. Check out the complete NHL® Tribute Collection.

A New Generation of Supernova

We introduced the INDIGLO® technology in 1992 with our TIMEX IRONMAN® line and due to its popularity, expanded its use to nearly 70% of the Timex collection. With a simple press on the crown, users could see the entire watch dial light up in a high-visibility green-blue light.

In 2017 the same technology was added to the Fairfield collection producing a hit with the Fairfield Chrono Supernova™ watch. Unlike other models where the dial lights up entirely, the Supernova™ technology features a dial treatment with perforated metal with small holes that emit light in a starry field, hence the Supernova™ name.

mk1 chrono supernova

Now, with our new MK1™ Chronograph Supernova, we provide a new way to experience our INDIGLO technology. The next generation of INDIGLO® technology will now be featured on the military-inspired MK1 model. The watch features a date window, stainless steel case, acrylic crystal dial, easy-to-read Arabic numerals, genuine leather straps and is water resistant to 30 meters.

The watches come in a variety of colorways including a brown leather strap with gray case and black dial, black leather strap with black case and black dial and striped fabric strap with black case and dial.

mk1 chrono supernova

A popular watch for outdoor use while still looking great in casual settings, the MK1 is a natural fit for the Supernova technology. Instead of metal, the new Supernova technology features a thin layer of perforated pad printed phosphorus material that is placed over the dial and allows light to pass through, creating a new and unique way to illuminate the dial.

Easy Reader in Easy Color

The Easy Reader® watch has been a best-seller for Timex since it first launched in 1977. Since then, many styles of watches have come and gone but the Easy Reader continues to persevere due to one factor: its simplicity. Devoid of frills and fancy add-ons, the Easy Reader is just that, an easy-to-read watch that does nothing more than what’s it’s supposed to do: tell the time.

Easy Reader Colorway

Timex updated the Easy Reader without losing sight of its simplistic appeal. This Spring, the Easy Reader will add a pop of color to the collection that is light in tone and offers a contemporary interpretation for women seeking a more stylish timepiece.

The Easy Reader Color Pop collection is for the consumer who appreciates an easy-to-read dial, but wants a touch of style to complement their wardrobe. The pastel color palette is perfect for Spring, and the premium crown and dial elevates the collection just enough without steering too far from its simple design aesthetic.

Several of the new colors that will pop include a silver-tone case with multi-color dial and white leather strap, rose gold-tone case with white dial and gray leather strap and a rose gold-tone case with white dial and blush leather strap. The new styles will be available in either a 38mm or 30mm case.

The Color Pop timepieces will also feature INDIGLO® backlight and are water resistant to 30 meters.

Choosing soft hues and accenting the right areas maintains the legacy of the Easy Reader Collection. If anything, the new colors will give consumers a reason to buy another Easy Reader.

A fresh, feminine approach to a classic watch, the Easy Reader Color Pop collection proves what’s old can be new again

Solar Powered Watches

When Timex was looking for a collection to introduce solar-powered technology, the Expedition was an obvious choice. Masculine, rugged and durable, the Expedition collection features outdoor-inspired watches that are ideal for solar power.

This technology is now featured in two Expedition models: The Expedition Solar Gallatin and the Expedition Solar Ranger. The solar movement functionality creates an environmentally-friendly and maintenance free timepiece that can be charged through indoor fluorescent light or outdoor sunlight. Once fully charged, the battery life can reach two months. If worn daily, there is very little chance the watch will stop.

Expedition Solar Gallatin

The Gallatin and Ranger watches maintain the rugged appeal of previous Expedition models and includes features users have come to expect from Timex. The Gallatin is available in both a fabric double layer slip-thru strap and genuine leather strap, featuring rich blue, green, brown and black colorways. Features include the solar-powered movement, Quickdate® Easy-to-set-date, a 45mm case and 22mm lug, and is water resistant to 50 meters.

Expedition Solar Ranger

The Ranger is available in rich tan, brown and black genuine leather straps with silver-tone cases and black, blue and green dial colors.

Timex and Todd Snyder Release the Mid-Century Day/Date Watch

Timex xTodd Snyder and Timex collaborate again, this time producing the vintage-inspired Mid-Century Day/Date watch. A relationship that has seen many successful launches including the Peanuts collection, the Mod and the Blackjack, Timex and Todd Snyder continue to embody classic Americana along with a contemporary approach to quality workmanship.

Introduced at Todd Snyder’s show during New York’s Fashion Week Men’s on Monday, February 4th, the Mid-Century timepiece gets another step closer to Todd’s quest for a watch that will typify men’s style.

Timex x Todd Snyder Mid Century Day Date

“I’m always in search for the ultimate gentlemen’s watch,” Todd says. “The Mid-Century is inspired by a vintage 70’s look that can be worn with formal or casual attire. It looks just as good with a suit as it does with a plain white t-shirt and a pair of blue jeans.”

While he often draws new project ideas by digging through the extensive archive of Timex watches, this idea came from a chance encounter.

“I was traveling in Europe and had a meeting with someone from the Timex team, and he was wearing the coolest old Timex with a day/date feature,” he says. “I liked it so much I took it right off his wrist and used it as the starting point for the Mid-Century. This watch is definitely one of my personal favorites.”

timex x todd snyder mid century day date

Unlike other Timex X Todd Snyder watches, the Mid-Century is not a re-issue but a new watch based on an original.

“From concept to finish, the process for this watch took almost two years,” he says. “It’s a new case and a new dial. Also, including the day/date element added a level of complexity to the process.”

The Todd Snyder + Timex Mid-Century timepiece is packed with vintage-inspired character and functional features. While the original was an automatic with chrome plated bezel, the new version is upgraded with a stainless-steel case and day/date quartz movement for improved accuracy. It’s styled with a handsome leather strap from S.B. Foot Tanning Co. and detailed with distinctive contrast stitching. The Mid-Century is crafted with the same domed acrylic crystal as the original, for an iconic timepiece that evokes the past while meeting today’s exacting standards.

“With this watch, I wanted to capture that mid-century aesthetic”, he says. “I wanted a simple and clean look that would appeal to men of all ages and carry an air of elegance and sophistication.”

Available exclusively at the Todd Snyder flagship store on Madison Square Park in New York and on Toddsnyder.com, the Mid-Century Day/Date is the next step in a fruitful relationship between fashion design and watchmaking ingenuity.

“I look at my work with Timex as a fun journey,” he says. “Timex has been a part of my life since I can remember and now I want to help introduce this important brand to a new generation.”

What a Triathlete Needs in a Watch

With a stunning display of athletic endurance, a triathlon takes you from the water to the bike and finishes it off with a marathon run. As you train, you push yourself to beat your personal records and strive for success on race day.

Make sure you have a timekeeping, activity-tracking companion as part of your essential triathlon gear to help you train with precision. Here are the features to look for in the ideal triathlon watch:

Swimming, cycling, running – and more

Multisport features make switching between events as easy as the push of a button. This changes the display information, recording speed and time depending on the activity. With an easy setting change, you can go from measuring miles per hour while cycling to minutes per mile when running. Of course, digital dials make it easy to take note of the data while on the move.

Advanced sport features for multisport training can further include distance, mile markers, pace, heart rate, hydration and nutrition alerts, timed intervals, split timing, race predictors, GPS tracking, power meter and more. Some triathlon watches even sync up with your smartphone or computer for more advanced data and information tracking. These multisport features make it easy to review performance improvements over time and track your progress on race day.

Bring on the water

While your smartphone has useful sports tracking features, you wouldn’t jump in the pool with it. A triathlon watch is as comfortable in the pool as you are. Water resistance up to 100 meters is usually the standard for a sports watch. This feature also means that inevitable encounters with sweat or rain while running or biking won’t affect watch performance.

Light on the wrist

The ideal triathlon watch sits comfortably on the wrist, enhancing performance rather than holding the wearer back with a clunky design or heavy weight. Along with lightweight cases and mechanics, these athletic timepieces typically include durable, weather- and water-resistant soft silicone rubber straps. A good triathlon watch should also be relatively thin, as this composition makes it easy to change clothes and gear between races.

How to Change a Watch Battery

The mini panic attack you may experience when you think you’re running late is easily the worst part of a watch battery dying. Your timepiece gets stuck where it is, displaying an inaccurate time until it gets fresh power. Once you realize what’s happened, your next move is to replace the battery as soon as possible.

While some watches have a unique process, you can generally change your Timex watch battery the same way you would most timepieces. Here’s how:

Take it to an expert
If you doubt your ability to change your watch battery, don’t worry. There are plenty of jewelers who would be happy to replace the precious part for you. Prices for this service will vary depending on the jeweler, so you may want to inquire at several stores before committing. However, once you find a jeweler or watch repair professional you can trust, we recommend heading back there whenever you need a reliable fix.

Do it yourself
You’ll need tweezers and a small screwdriver to remove the dead battery and replace it with the new one. Safety note: it is suggested using plastic rather than metal tools to avoid an electrical shock. Wearing gloves can also prevent damage from occurring inside the watch.

Once you have the materials, follow these steps to change your watch battery like a pro:

1. Remove the watch back
Most modern watches have snap-off back panels, which have small indentations to help you carefully pry off the cover. Using a small flathead screwdriver or blade, press down on the indentation and twist until the cover comes loose. If your watch back is secured with screws, use a small screwdriver, such as one designed for eyeglasses, to loosen the screws and remove the cover. Some watch backs have slots large enough to fit the edge of a coin, which you can use to twist off the cover.

2. Place the gasket to the side
If you see a rubber ring or plastic covering, remove that from the watch case to reveal the inner workings of the timepiece. Use tweezers or the edge of a knife if you need help getting a strong grip. Battery Depot recommended cleaning the gasket before you put it back after changing the battery.

3. Find and remove the battery
Once you see the existing battery, note which side is facing upward so you can replicate the placement when you insert the new part. If there are plastic clips holding the battery in place, use plastic tweezers to lift them. From there, you can use the tweezers to ease the battery out of the watch case.

4. Insert the new battery
Use the tweezers to place the new battery in its designated slot, and gently press down to secure its position.

5. Test your work
Before reattaching the back cover, carefully flip the watch over to see if it’s working. If the hands still aren’t moving, double check to make sure you installed the new battery correctly. You may have a damaged battery or faulty watch if it still fails to work, so consider taking the timepiece to a jeweler or watch repair store for a professional examination.

6. Replace the gasket and watch back
If the battery’s working, perform the first two steps in reverse order to put all the parts back in place.

With a fresh battery, your watch will be ready to wear once again. Better still, now that you know how to replace the batteries, you can confidently add more watches to your repertoire. Check out the Timex collection to find your next timekeeping companion.

3 Features to Love About the Timex® Marlin® Watch

As a faithful update to a beloved 1960s Timex watch, the Marlin® is the kind of timepiece that looks like you inherited it from Grandpa but shines like brand new. Its vintage-inspired appeal is for the old souls who appreciate the beauty of the past, while its modern construction is made for today’s wrist.

timex marlin

Here are the features that make the Timex Marlin such a distinctive and refined watch:

1. Fresh take on 1960s design
The updated Timex Marlin looks at ease as you turn up the energetic tunes of “The Twist,” tighten your tie and get ready for a night on the town, yet feels just as comfortable when you pull out your smartphone to book your shared ride. As a genuine vintage-inspired watch revival, the Marlin is true to its predecessors, seamlessly blending the 1960s feel into the modern watch wearer’s world.

The stainless-steel case and silver sunray dial mirror the original design, with a brushed effect that has a creamy, champagne hue when the light catches it. Stick dial markings alternate with stylized Arabic numerals, a trending look during the 1960s. The result is a modern watch with a classic, sophisticated appeal that upholds the Timex heritage.

2. Back to mechanical movement
A sincere tribute to the past, the modern Timex Marlin features the same reliable, hand-wound mechanical movement as the original. This vintage-inspired watch movement requires fine craftsmanship and routine winding by the wearer. You’ll want to wind the watch until you feel resistance on the crown, repeating this step daily so the watch doesn’t stop. The Marlin’s manual movement makes it easy to wind whether you’re holding the timepiece or wearing it on your wrist. As your watch keeps time, you’ll hear the characteristic ticking of mechanical movement.

3. Genuine, beautiful materials
As with any Timex watch, the Marlin is made with durable, high-quality materials. The glossy genuine leather strap comes in true black, complete with a textured lizard grain pattern to match the Marlin’s polished, vintage-inspired look. When you’re feeling a change, you can easily swap out the strap with another 18 mm leather band. The Timex Marlin is also water-resistant, which means this timepiece can withstand inevitable run-ins with rainy weather or splashes of water.

timex marlin

The watch is housed in a 34 mm polished stainless-steel case, topped with domed acrylic crystal. The case is almost identical to the original, aside from the higher-grade finishing of a modern timepiece. While smaller than many modern watches for men, this case size is period appropriate and also gives the watch a gender neutral appeal. (Couples watches, anyone?)

With that, say hello to your new vintage-inspired watch. The Timex Marlin pairs the purity, precision and pleasure of a hand-wound mechanical movement with the timeless refinement of sleek design. You can channel suave, 50s ad agency vibes as you head to the office, party or dinner date with this sophisticated updated timepiece.
