This Q Timex Reissue Is One of the Best So Far
If you're still struggling to find the perfect gift for Pops this Father's Day—or, more realistically, if you haven't even started the search yet—Todd Snyder and Timex are here to help you salvage the sanctity of the holiday. Menswear's most dynamic duo is back at it again, this time teaming up to release another take on a classic Timex style tailor-made for Dad. It's sure to restore your old man's faith in your gift-giving abilities (after a series of particularly disastrous attempts the last few go-arounds, naturally).

The Todd Snyder + Q Timex Bracelet is the latest reissue of the OG style that brought then-groundbreaking quartz timekeeping technology to the masses in the '70s. For decades, though, it lay dormant, consigned to the Timex archives. But since its reintroduction last year, the Q Timex has truly become the gift that keeps on giving. And in Snyder's capable hands, it's one particularly suited to redeeming the reputation of any slightly forgetful son with a track record of lackluster presents from Father's Day(s) past.
When Snyder spotted the style in the Timex archives, it reminded him most of the watches his own dad used to wear, and he knew he had no choice but to put his own spin on it. That means swapping the woven steel bracelet that we've seen on other iterations for a cleaner one that stays true to the Q Timex's spirit of modernity. It also means a black dial and a tone-on-tone stainless steel bezel, giving the whole thing a sleeker-than-your average-reissue feel. But, lest you forget it is indeed a reissue, it's still got old-school touches like the domed acrylic crystal to bring together the vintage and the of-the-moment vibes.
The Todd Snyder + Q Timex Bracelet is available to buy now (though likely not for long) through the Todd Snyder site. Happy early Father's Day, folks. Try not to fuck this one up.
