The Sunday Sale: This Iconic Timex x Todd Snyder Watch Is 30 Percent Off

Possibly your new favorite watch — and at a stellar discount, too.

If it’s Sunday, which it is, it must be time for another Sunday Sale, and crucially, another Sunday Sale featuring Todd Snyder. We’ve talked in the past about how to get a great deal on a new crewneck sweatshirt from the lauded NYC designer, and we’ve also talked about how to get great deals on boots and much more. Let’s shift gears a bit and tak about a stellar sale on one of the best men’s watches of the moment. It’s a casual timepiece that nearly needs no introduction, because the Timex + Todd Snyder Military Watch has been a fan favorite since its 2017 release (and of course, a favorite of this blog, as well). Keep in mind that the Timex + Todd Snyder Military Watch is a very hot seller, so there’s a chance it might have already been snapped up … but, know that other Timex + Todd Snyder watches are every bit as covetable, durable and affordable.

SHOP: The Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical Watch via Uncrate 

A rugged field watch to wear every day this fall.

And the great thing about a military-inspired field watch is that it really is true to form, recreating the types of timepieces worn by soldiers through the years. It features sturdy construction and a nicely sized 38mm case diameter to match. Don’t forget 50 meters of water resistance, either — wear it in the summer or the fall with ease. Whether you pick up the brown colorway or opt for the more sleek Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical in Black, you’re getting plenty of bang for your buck — and a healthy dose of seasonal style, too.

This is the sort of classic field watch you can throw on with dark selvedge denim, a Western shirt and a rugged chore coat, or else rock with your favorite T-shirt for a casual fall morning at home. However you choose to wear the Hamilton Khaki Field Mechanical Watch, you can be sure it’s ready for anything you’ve got on your fall to-do list.

Style Pick of the Week: Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph Watch

A perfectly rugged leather field watch to wear all fall.

Folks, quickly — look at your right or left wrist. Are you missing one of the best watches for men? Even if you’re wearing a watch (a great style move to start, to be sure), I’d bet that it’s not anywhere near as stylish, rugged or dependable as the Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph as shown above (no offense, though!). It’s an investment-level watch that, thanks to its rugged build and durable design, happens to be both one of the best leather watches and one of the best watches for fall. How does that work out?  A rugged watch that wears especially well in the fall months? Yes, you bet. Luminox has a sterling reputation making tactical and military-approved watches, and this leather field watch blends both hearty design specs and plenty of style points. Now, this particular watch retails for $940 via Luminox …  but it’s assuredly worth it. 

You see, the cooler weather of fall naturally calls for harder-wearing, tougher gear with plenty of texture and dependability for chilly fall weather, wind and rain. Think a waxed trucker jacket, slim selvedge denim, tough leather boots and of course, a reliable leather watch for men — one that’s got the design and toughness to pair up more than readily with each of those fall style essentials. Still with me? Right on.

SHOP: The Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph

A durable leather field watch that looks great with, well, just about anything.

The specs on this rugged leather field watch are, quite simply, very impressive. The 45mm stainless steel case design is beastly and made for fall and winter adventures off trail, and the screw down crown adds another touch of resistance to the elements. This Luminox watch has plenty going for it on the style front, too — the midnight blue sunray dial is eye-catching and visually appealing, and luminescent dial markings help light the way when conditions get tough out there.

Elsewhere, the Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph features three chronographs and alarm functionality, all the better to stay on time on the trail (and back home). It’s one of the coolest leather watches I’ve seen in some time, and design details like ivory contrast stitching and a handsome honey tan leather strap drive that point home nicely, too. You can rock this stylish leather watch with just about any gear you’d like, but for real fall excursions, my best bet would to pair the Luminox Atacama Field Chronograph with a rugged henley, a denim shirt, your favorite trucker jacket, hard-wearing chore pants and of course, leather lace-up boots. Just like that, you’ve figured out your new favorite fall ensemble — starring your favorite leather watch. Good luck out there this fall, folks.

Style Pick of the Week: Momentum Watches Steelix Black Ion Watch

A rugged watch for each and every spring adventure.

The right spring ensemble calls for the right spring watch — a rugged, tough watch made for the everyday, the unexpected, and then some. That’s where today’s Style Pick of the Week enters the equation. The Momentum Watches Steelix Black Ion Watch is strikingly designed, truly one-of-a-kind and made to be worn with other spring style essentials with ease (a rugged waxed jacket comes to mind, but we’ll get to more on that in a moment). It can be seen as a somewhat bold style move to go for an all-black, murdered-out watch — especially if you, like me, have an affinity for brown leather watches — but the Momentum Watches Steelix Black Ion Watch delivers the right kind of introductory style to switching up your watch game (not to mention, the right kind of functionality to be worn all spring). Available for a downright steal at Huckberry ($295 for a cool-as-can-be military field watch), this is the tough watch you’ll want to wear all day and all night — again, the all-black design with a contrasting dial makes this a unique addition to your daily carry (and the casual-yet-rugged look you need for your next night out). But why should you consider adding this watch to your rotation when you’ve got other field watches that get the job done? Friends, I’m glad you asked.

SHOP: Momentum Watches Steelix Black Ion Watch

Designed to be worn with other rugged spring style essentials, no doubt about it.

It’s the sort of hybrid style that really makes it tick (pun intended), from the military field watch styling to the dependable 44mm case size, which should wear nicely if you pair it with hearty gear like, again, a waxed trucker jacket. And because it’s sold at Huckberry, it’s got all the bells and whistles that go along with the tough gear you expect from the brand, such as 200 meters of water resistance and a no-fuss quartz movement. It’s a watch that’s easily made for the open road — it’s got a battery life of three-to-five years, which is stupendous bang for your buck when you take into the account the price (again, $295 at Huckberry). Lest you think it can only be worn with adventure-minded gear, think of the styling potential of the Momentum Watches Steelix Black Ion Watch just as you would a classic stainless steel dive watch. Try it with a short-sleeve henley and faded black denim, add your favorite chukka boots (yes, you can pair black-and-tan!), or else go with a hemp polo, tan chinos and white leather sneakers — those are just two of the ways in which the Momentum Watches Steelix Black Ion Watch is going to work for you. You’ll have to pick up this watch to figure out the rest.

The Friday Read: Your New Favorite Sneakers, Cold War Kids & Upgrading Your Watch

Step into the weekend the right way — with these tough leather boots.

Are you laced up and ready to head into the weekend? I know I am — and if I had my way, I’d be wearing some of the best men’s leather boots as shown above: The Nick’s Boots MP-M1 Boots. They’re a perfectly rugged pair of leather boots to wear all weekend (and in my humble opinion, they’d do very well when worn to a favorite brewery or craft beer bar). If you end up picking up those stylish leather boots, let me know. In the meantime, we’re rolling into a busy February with today’s Friday Read. It was another edition of New York Fashion Week: Men’s here in the city this week, which led to quite the juggling act for me — hopping from my agency day job to runway shows by menswear luminaries like Todd Snyder, who showed a perfectly refined, throwback-inspired collection of beautifully tailored outerwear and trousers. It helps that he also served delicious craft beer from Brooklyn’s Threes Brewing at said runway show earlier this week!

The fun didn’t stop there, though — I found time to fit in another one of my passions, that passion being great live music. I swung through the recently revamped Webster Hall (a legendary venue in its own right) to see California rockers Cold War Kids, a personal favorite. I had previously seen them in Brooklyn (in 2018) and Nashville (back in 2017), and they always put on a blistering set. Standbys like “Hospital Beds” and “First” amped up the night, as did my favorite song by the So Cal rockers — the hard-charging, inspiring “Miracle Mile.” Tracks off the band’s most recent album, “New Age Norms 1,” featuring more soulful numbers and gospel-esque production, fit in surprisingly well throughout the night, too. All told, when you blend a night of great rock music with, say, a couple cans of cold PBR, it doesn’t get much better. That being said, I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend in the borough, powered by plenty of coffee and some of my favorite vinyl records spinning. Check out our Friday Read below, then come by tomorrow for the Style Pick of the Week. Cheers!

  • I mentioned above that we’d be talking about your new favorite sneakers — and indeed, that time has come. Nike recently released an upgraded take on its classic Air Force 1 silhouette, and the result is a pair of streamlined sneakers made with GORE-TEX for added winter durability. Read my latest at GearMoose for the full scoop. Wear them now with your favorite pair of jeans.
  • Bear with me for just a moment here — there’s truly no reason you can’t wear your favorite summer watch in the winter. How does that work out? Well, I’m giving you the full rundown in my latest for The Manual (Hint: It’s all about texture and rugged style).
