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.

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.
