If you missed it before: The Timex X Red Wing collaboration is now also available for purchase from Todd Snyder with prices starting at $138.

Previously found only in Japan, the Timex x Red Wing collaboration is now available on the US market. The collection features the Waterbury watch in three sizes — 38mm and 40mm date models and a 42mm chronograph — complemented with leather watch straps from Red Wing’s S.B. Foot Tanning Company. It’s also incredibly affordable. For a timepiece styled on historic designs with a premium leather band that will age beautifully, the 38mm/40mm watch is priced at $138 and the 42mm chronograph is $158.

Designer Todd Snyder was instrumental in bringing this collection to the American Market, after seeing the watch at Timex’s Tokyo design studios. “I was mad at myself that I hadn’t thought of it,” Snyder told Maxim. Though Synder’s own collaboration with Timex will be available in the fall (he’s reviving the Bullseye model), he chose to outfit many of his models with the Red Wing collaboration during his F/W 2016 show at New York Fashion Week: Men’s.

This watch adds a rugged American element into any wardrobe and, at this price point, is an easy-to-indulge purchase.
