This year, I had a Supersize Me epiphany, but it related to watches, not fast food. Across the spectrum of low- to mid-range timepieces, brands have been pushing bigger and bigger cases, claiming it’ll reflect your own personality: be bold, in your face, aggressive!
Then I put on the Timex Marlin, the best affordable watch I wore 2018, though it came out in late 2017. It’s a painstakingly reissued style from the ‘60s and the brand’s first (manual-winding) mechanical watch since the ‘80s, with a case that clocks in at just 34mm. That used to be par for the course, but now feels downright small — in the best possible way. Just look at those numerals. I’d write a love letter to the Marlin if the horological experts at Hodinkee hadn’t beat me to it.
The best part of all? Huckberry is currently selling all of their watches for 30% off until December 29th, and the Timex Marlin is one of them. Meaning: the unbeatable original price of $199 is now discounted down to $139.
But if you’re not a Timex fan, we’ll not belabor the point.
