NEW YORK, July 10, 2017 — Stealthy and sophisticated, the new Blackjack Watch from Todd Snyder and Timex is inspired by a sporty 1970s style from the Timex archives, updated in a modern blackout palette. This edgy timepiece – the latest in an ongoing collaboration between the celebrated menswear designer and the iconic American watch brand – is an homage to the stylish drivers of Formula One in the 1960s and 70s. Nodding to speed dials and roulette wheels, the Blackjack evokes the noir glamour of fast cars, hot tires and midcentury 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 Todd Snyder + Timex® Blackjack Watch borrows distinctive details from that archival original, with urbane updates in the form of a black finished case and military inspired nylon strap. Additional features include 50 Meter Water Resistance and Quartz Movement.
- Military Style Nylon Strap

The Blackjack Watch is priced at $138 and is available exclusively online at ToddSnyder.com and at Todd Snyder’s flagship store on Madison Square North in New York at 25 E. 26th Street.
The Blackjack Watch is the newest offering from the ongoing Todd Snyder + Timex partnership, embodying classic Americana along with a contemporary approach to quality workmanship. Every style in the collaboration — which returns with its next releases in the Fall — is designed for versatility and genuine wearability, pairing as well with a suit as it does with jeans and a tee.
