The Marlin Blackout

Timex is excited to announce that the Marlin Blackout, previously only available on Toddsnyder.com, can now be found on Timex.com. The Marlin Blackout is a follow up to Timex’s classic mid-century style of the same name, and pays homage to the pleasure of a hand-wound mechanism with timeless good looks.

Commenting on the Marlin Blackout, designer Todd Snyder said, “I’ve been wanting to do something more elegant, something you’d style with a suit, and by customizing the Marlin with a blackout palette we’ve given it a sophisticated modern feel”.

Why the Easy Reader Endures

When it comes to watches, they don’t come much simpler than our Easy Reader®. For over 40 years, this basic watch has become synonymous with Timex and continues to be a best-seller.

As the wristwatch shifted from being purely functional to a fashion accessory, dial treatments began to rely on aesthetic values rather than readability. Timex, known for functional and reliable timepieces, went back to the company’s roots to provide a functional, reliable and readable wristwatch.

timex easy reader

Based on dials from the Waterbury Clock Company, Timex produced watches that could be easily read with a glance. The use of large, full Arabic numerals and bold hands, both in high contrast to the dial color provided consumers with a wristwatch that could be read from across a room.

Prior to 1977, the men’s size watches using dial treatments were marketed under the collection name Mercury. The smaller women’s size was sold as the Petite collection. In 1977, Timex applied to trademark the name Easy Reader® and began a national advertising campaign which included both print and television advertisements. The campaign touted Easy Reader as “The NEW watch with the BIG numbers”.

timex easy reader

Originally offered using white dials with black printed numerals and hands, the wrist watches resembled a traditional school clock. To broaden the collection to a full assortment, bold dial colors replaced the traditional white dial and darker colors, such as black and deep blue, utilized high contrast white printed numerals and hands to ensure readability even with a more fashionable look. Easy Reader quickly became the workhorse collection for Timex.

Since its introduction, the Easy Reader watch has seen many evolutions from basic black and white to bold colors, from simple leather straps to the iconic expansion band attachment. It has seen the addition of the INDIGLO® night-light feature, expanding its readability to absolutely any condition with a press of the crown.

Spinning Forward

A renowned DJ and Head of Marketing and Partnerships for music festivals Outlook and Dimensions, Andy Lemay is regarded as one of the steadfast DJ’s keeping underground electronic music alive.

“I feel that breaking new talent, as well as respecting the originators and those who have been dedicated to the craft for many years, is a responsibility of ours,” he says. “And it is a core value of mine.”

Andy Lemay Timex

The Dimensions Festival is held annually in the ruins of the Croatian Fort, Punta Christo, and gives a platform for DJ’s who otherwise wouldn’t get wide recognition.

“At Dimensions, they don’t book the major stars,” he says. “The team books the artists they feel should be heard and get more recognition.”

A lot has changed since he started DJ’ing, and while he appreciates the way new technology can make performing easier and connect artists, he still feels nostalgia for the early days of turntable technique.

andy lemay timex

He won’t take sides in the ongoing debate of old vs new when it comes to DJ’ing, but he does feel the need to respect where the art form came from and why vinyl should still be a part of any DJ’s collection.

“When you see a DJ show up with a large vinyl collection it shows passion and dedication,” he says. “It costs a lot of money to build a vinyl collection and it’s no easy task lugging that baggage through airports.”

He also welcomes the advancements in technology that give DJ’s less equipment to carry around and thousands of songs on laptops to choose from.

“With the internet, you have both good and bad,” he says. “On the one hand, it’s easier to rip off other artists but the ability to find new artists and share music is so wide open it makes for a really exciting time.”

In addition to helping DJ’s be found, he also finds social platforms and sites like SoundCloud great for connecting what used to be a very insular community.

“Before, underground electronic music was maybe centered around local scenes,” he says. “Now, you can find like-minded people all over the world and connect this eco-system of people who share the same passion for music. It’s really fun to break out of a closed scene and discover what DJ’s are creating in South Africa, Finland, Mexico, Columbia, everywhere really. You can find incredible DJ’s in the most unlikely of places.”

The Ride of His Life

robert barranco timex allied lt

Robert Barranco, a competitive BMX rider from Florida, doesn’t take life too seriously. With his bike, a backpack and a plane ticket, the 23-year old makes urban exploration a physical journey across the world that follows a personal inner trail.

“I like to live life without a plan,” he says. “My mindset is ‘we’ll figure it out when we get there’. If you don’t have a plan, then nothing can go wrong.”

While he likes to joke that he rides BMX as an excuse to go on trips, he has been a competitive rider since 2014. His first love was motocross but his parents thought it was too dangerous so he settled on pedaling his way through life.

“I like to ride without obligations,” he says. “When the basic needs are taken care of, you can do whatever you want. You just have to find a way.”

robert barranco timex allied lt

Though he is an unsponsored BMX rider, he has visited over 100 skate parks around the world with one of his favorites being Victoria Skate Park in London. To enable his travels, he limits himself to $10 a day, sleeps in cars, stranger’s homes and tents.

“Do whatever you want,” he says, “because one day, that’s all that’s going to matter.”

robert barranco timex allied lt

With the help of a friend he has created a clothing company called FTE Collective, or For the Experience. The online store features a variety of skatewear apparel including t-shirts, patches, wool socks and hats. As with most of his endeavors, Barranco never intended FTE to become a brand.

“It all started when some friends and I would go to restaurants and not even eat to save money,” he says. “We just went to hang out with people we knew who were eating and say ‘I’ll just go for the experience’ It’s a simple phrase that encompasses and explains so many people’s way of thinking and lifestyle in just three little words.”

FTE Collective doesn’t support a living, even one as cheap as his, but it does help achieve simple goals.

“Sometimes I’ll work a few months at a time doing whatever and then disappear,” he says. I’ll find cool skate parks to ride and places to hike with friends. When you’re older you’re not going to look back and remember paying rent and making car payments. You will remember that time you slept outside in a park in France.”

He does admit to occasionally thinking if he will one day settle down, own a home and have a family. For now, though, time is on his side.

“I read somewhere once ‘You’re born and you die. What you do in between is up to you’”, he says. “Right now, all I want to do is ride my bike with friends and travel the world.”
