Recently the watch world has started to move away from it’s love for navy and black dialed watches and has started a new love for more exotic, unqiue colours, designs and materials. More and more people want a watch that is a bit of a personal statement that reflects who they are and Timex’s new and improced Marlin might be the perfect statement to make.
The original Marlin was launched in the 1960s and is a perfect representation of mid-century design, being rather simple and function with curves here and there. Today the Marlin can be considered a dress watch as it’s slim and sophisticated. In it’s plainer guises, it could be considered rather boring and bland, but in this green guise, it’s a personal statement that suggests you might be cooler than you may seem.
Powered by an Automatic movement and made from stainless steel, it’s most definitely a quality product with hints of luxury. Realistically you’re buying this watch for its gorgeous sunburst green dial, which goes well with the green strap but could also go well on a black band if you’re looking for something a little more subtle.
Priced at $259, it’s very reasonable as you’re unlikely to get a cooler watch that’s such good quality for anything less.
