With an automatic movement and stylish new look, the Marlin is back! As each reissue has been a hit, it should surprise no one that the newest iteration was well received. Timex has held horological notoriety for being one of the most well known watch brands with widely held name recognition in households across America. From the Ingersoll Yankee Dollar Watch to the Mickey Mouse Character Watch, Timex has made history time and time again.

The new Marlin Automatic has the classic color pairings with burgundy/steel, black/steel, black/gold, and silver/steel. S. B. Foot Tanning Company leather straps compliment each pairing beautifully. One model in particular has a very special feature sure to draw extra attention: Snoopy! The Marlin Automatic Featuring Snoopy shows one of our favorite animated friends as the 6 o’clock marker, depicted in the classic illustration style as he stands proudly with his aviator cap and scarf.

Snoopy, everyone’s favorite pet beagle from Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts comic strip, debuted in 1950. However, this watch features Snoopy in his Flying Ace iteration released in 1965, the (previous) pinnacle of Marlin’s popularity. A clever design nodding to the origins of the 1960s Marlin, this Snoopy edition works as a culmination of classics packaged with style.

Now for the details you’re all waiting for. Keeping with the classic feel, these watches have a 40mm diameter and 13mm height that give a great impression on the wrist. Pair that with automatic winding, a date feature, and water resistance up to 30 meters, and you have a serious contender for everyday wear for only $249. While the celebration featured amazing food, endless drinks, and wonderful company, the Marlin was the true star of the show. Leave it to Timex to create yet another classic.
