During the 1960s, Timex scored a hit with the hand-wound Marlin® watch. Sensing the time was right for a reissue, Timex launched a highly successful update to the original in 2017 with a classic hand-wound mechanical movement.
Now, as demand for the Marlin continues, Timex is proud to partner with Mr. Porter and Todd Snyder in offering three new hand-wound Marlin styles with exclusive new color palettes and, for the first time ever, a design specifically made for women.
Hand-wind (also called manual wind) watches must be wound daily to prevent the movement from stopping. This is perfect for Marlin owners who most likely will make strapping on their Marlin a part of their morning routine. Simply wind the watch until you feel resistance on the crown. This should be repeated every day to prevent the watch from stopping.
Referred to as the Gentlemen’s Standard, the Timex Marlin pairs the purity and pleasure of a hand-wound mechanical movement with the timeless sophistication of a sleek design. The only hand-wound timepiece available by Timex, the Marlin has earned commercial and critical success and a new audience of watch enthusiasts who adore the reissue of a true mechanical watch.
Featuring a stainless-steel case, genuine leather strap or mesh band, 34mm case size, 18mm lug width and water-resistant up to 30 meters, the Marlin is a contemporary take on a timeless classic.
The three new Marlin hand-wound timepieces include: a stainless-steel case with a domed acrylic crystal and lizard pattern leather strap in black with gold-tone finish; a women’s version with white leather strap and rose gold-tone finish; and an all stainless-steel version with a mesh band.
The popularity of the Marlin has allowed Timex to offer two styles to exclusive men’s fashion sites, Toddsnyder.com (stainless-steel mesh band) and Mrporter.com (lizard pattern leather strap in black with gold-tone finish).
Elegant, classic and expertly crafted, the Timex hand-wound Marlins are a must for any watch enthusiast or anyone looking to make a sophisticated statement with their watch.
