Timex and Todd Snyder are teaming up again. A strong partnership that combines the craftsmanship of Timex with Todd’s style authority, the latest collaboration, the Timex Beekman is based on a Timex racing inspired watch from the ‘60s. While the original watch was intended for racing enthusiasts, the modern version recreates both the finesse and function of the original with unmatched versatility and a unique dial that stands the test of time.
Todd visited the Timex headquarters in Middlebury and had the chance to go through our extensive archive of vintage watches and found the distinctive tachymeter complication on the dial of the racing watch compelling enough to inspire the Timex Beekman.
“The Beekman brings together two things I really love: classic cars and classic timepieces. I’m proud to continue the Timex X Todd Snyder partnership with the launch of our first co-created tachymeter watch, and to celebrate the values we both share: iconic design, impeccable craftsmanship and a commitment to innovation and functionality at a great value.” Todd Snyder

– Stainless-Steel Case

In a classic nod to its racing roots, the watch can measure the speed of a moving object, such as a vintage racing car. Pull out the crown when the second hand is at the 12 position, stopping the hand. When the car passes the starting point, push down the crown to start the secondhand again. When the car reaches the end of a one-mile course, stop the second hand again. Check its position against the tachymeter markings and you can tell how fast the car was moving.
Two styles of the Beekman are available at ToddSnyder.com: a stainless-steel case with black leather strap and black dial and a stainless-steel case with brown leather strap and cream dial. The watches can also be found at Todd Snyder’s flagship store on Madison Square in New York.
