Just when you were getting used to having this military-inspired number on your wrist, American menswear designer Todd Snyder and iconic watch brand Timex have returned with their fourth collaboration: the Blackjack.

This go ‘round, the partners look to the ‘70s for inspiration, evoking the “noir glamour of fast cars, hot tires and midcentury Monaco casinos.” Upon first look, what really makes this watch special is its face. The blue, black and white segmented dial looks like a speedometer gone haywire. It’s a bold look — one that should attract shoppers at any price point, let alone $138.

Says Snyder: “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. 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.”

You’ll wanna grab your sooner rather than later. Head on over to Todd Snyder for more info.
