Todd Snyder and Timex look back into their archives to deliver the new Blackjack watch, which ultimately draws inspiration from sporty style during the ’70s, more specifically honing in on the stylish drivers of Formula One. The timepiece in turn evokes the noir glamour of fast cars, hot tires and midcentury Monaco casinos, thus nodding to speed dials and roulette wheels.
“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.”
From a design standpoint, the Blackjack notes a black-finished case, paired with a military-inspired nylon strap, with additional features including 50 Meter Water Resistance and Quartz Movement.
