New York based designer Todd Snyder continues his collaborative efforts with Timex to deliver a new stealthy and sophisticated timepiece, known as the Blackjack. The watch is inspired by a sporty 1970s style which pays homage to the stylish drivers of Formula One in the 1960s and 70s. The Blackjack evokes the noir glamour of fast cars, hot tires and mid-century Monaco casinos – all in a sleek New York style.
“I’ve always been fascinated by Formula One and the history of the Grand Prix, especially the gritty elegance of retro race days and the swagger of the great drivers,” says Todd Snyder. “When I found the vintage style that inspired this watch, with its bold, graphic design, I began thinking about motors and engines and dials – and the similarities between finely engineered timepieces and high performance racing machines. The Blackjack embodies all that in a modern blackout palette that speaks to our New York roots.”
The watch features a black finish case with a nylon strap. Additional features include 50 meter water resistance and quartz movement.
