It was originally known as the Timex Mercury, but the reissue is the 1950s Timex x Todd Snyder Welton Bi-Metal watch.
Not that it has changed much outside of the name, outside of some tweaking with the inner workings of this midcentury timepiece.
This is fast becoming a must-see range when it comes to retro watches. In the past, I have covered the Midcentury Watch, as well as the Beekman Watch and the Mod Watch, not to mention the reissue of some classic vintage Peanuts watches. All of which are well worth checking out, as they are still available.
But this is a new one, just on the shelves. Although there isn’t much else new about this one outside of the change of name and the mechanism. This is still very much the 1950s watch, but with the original V-Conic inner workings replaced with a quartz movement purely for practical reasons.
The reissue still has the stainless steel and genuine leather strap, along with the original face, which is a silver-tone dial using gold-tone indices and hands. If classic 1950s is your thing, you will love this.
Also present is a domed acrylic crystal cover and water resistance up to 30 metres.
Just on the shelves, it sells for $158 it has just gone up for sale, priced at $158. Yes, Todd Snyder is a US site, but they do ship internationally – and free if you spend over a certain amount there.
