TIMEX Re-Launch Of The Best-Selling 1960’s Mid-Century Modern - the Marlin.

The Daily Jewel

Tried and true, TIMEX recently announced their re-launch of the best-selling 1960’s TIMEX Marlin.

It is great to see a watch company that isn't looking to add new "complications" but is instead satisfied with a simple design from yesterday with the contemporary reissue of the sleek mid-century original. 

However, this latest drop will feature exclusive new color palettes for him, and for the first time ever, a design specifically made for women.

The Gentleman’s Standard now extends to the Ladies Choice. 
This reissue of our classic 1960s timepiece pairs the purity and pleasure of a hand-wound mechanical movement with the timeless sophistication of a sleek design. 
Now available with rose-gold details and a white leather strap. 
Sold exclusively on TIMEX.com.
Classic. Elegant. Lasting. This reissue of our classic 1960s timepiece pairs the purity, precision and pleasure of a hand-wound mechanical movement with timeless sophistication. We’ve updated this 1960s classic, creating a Women’s Marlin® timepiece that stays true to its mid-century modern design, featuring a rose gold-tone case, white dial and white leather strap. And while we’ve upgraded this timepiece to meet modern standards, we’ve stayed true to the functionality of our original Marlin® watch with a hand-wound mechanical movement and domed acrylic crystal. Wind the watch until you feel resistance on the crown. This should be repeated every day to prevent the watch from stopping. Special Edition Timex.com Exclusive

About TIMEX:
TIMEX roots date back to 1894 in Waterbury, Connecticut, a time when how you made something was just as important as what you made.  But the brand 
came into its own in the '50s.  In 1950, TIMEX brand watches arrived with the V-Conic, the first high-quality mass produced watch movement.  At the end of the decade, every third watch sold was a TIMEX.  AND we did everything imaginable to destroy our watches on live television each week, proving "TIMEX takes a licking and keeps on ticking."

Then in 1984, TIMEX took the clock off the finish line and put it on your wrist creating the world's first Sports Watch. The TIMEX Ironman became your coach, your motivation and a symbol of your dedication.  Together, we've crossed nearly every finish line in the world.

With 1992 came the Indiglo Night Light which became the TIMEX signature Blue Backlight, revolutionalizing the way the world reads time in the dark.
