The Timex Marlin Automatic is the modern interpretation of the rerelease of the 1960’s classic, but with a larger case and outfitted with an automatic movement as opposed to a manual-wind. This online exclusive burgundy version is a special take on the highly versatile offering with a handsomely brooding dial and matching strap.
The polished and brushed steel case measures 40mm-wide and 13mm-thick with a 48mm lug-to-lug measurement. It has a water resistance of 30m, as well. With a domed box-style acrylic crystal that curves at the edges, there is a feeling of depth on the dial that is enhanced by this burgundy color. The baton-style hands are lumed and contrast nicely against the dial, maintaining great legibility. All of the dial and case elements of the Marlin Automatic are designed to come together to create a watch that’s timeless in its design while also being priced in a way that is approachable to many buyers and collectors.
Also appealing at this price point is the display case back that shows the automatic Japanese Miyota 8215 movement. This solid and reliable automatic movement operates at 21,600 vph and has a 40-hour power reserve. The movement also provides a date function that can be seen at 3 o’clock. With the Timex name on the rotor, the Marlin Automatic has an attractive finish to a movement that the wearer does not need to worry about when it comes to reliability and accuracy.
The Timex Marlin Automatic watch plays with curves and sharp lines throughout its case design, creating a distinct look that bucks much of the cookie-cutter offerings in the sub-$300 category. It’s a vintage style that is authentic coming from Timex, as the Marlin watch is one that dates back to the mid-20th century. The name Timex is synonymous with American timekeeping that is accessible, attractive, and reliable.
Coming on a matching burgundy S.B. Foot Tanning Company leather strap, this online exclusive Marlin Automatic watch joins several existing dial variations, such as navy blue, silver, and black. The original mid-century Timex Marlin was known for being a watch that could withstand the rigors of daily wear, and the modern interpretation is just as hardy.
