Timex honors their rich watchmaking history with the Marlin Automatic Watch. This modern release is an aesthetic refresh of the iconic 1960s Marlin, replacing the original hand-wound movement with a 21 jewel automatic. The design has been updated here and there, but maintains the same clean, mid-century feel, and incorporates the original's signature acrylic domed crystal. It's finished with a date window at 3 o'clock and a classic leather strap using material from the S.B. Foot Tanning Company.
Presented by Timex.
Vague Watch Co.'s Grey Fade Submariner gets its name from the dark grey bezel insert, meant to mimic the sought-after "ghost bezel" effect found on the faded black bezels of well-worn vintage sport watches. Adding to the vintage look are intentional but subtle distressing marks of the case sides. It's built with an automatic movement, meaning you'll never have to change a battery, as the watch is powered by the movement of your arm during wear. With a stainless steel case, a screw-down back, and a 100-meter depth rating, the watch is also rugged enough to handle some serious time in the water. On top of that, it ships with a sharp military-inspired case, watch tool, and a classic nylon NATO strap to switch out with the stainless oyster band.
