After collaborating with Snow Peak and JOURNAL STANDARD in a joint release, Timex has returned with yet another co-sign, this time calling in Kyle Ng‘s Los Angeles imprint Brain Dead for a new timepiece — the 40mm Fabric Strap Watch.
Brain Dead’s graphic-driven style has taken over Timex’s classic Acadia case design, emblazoning bold motifs everywhere from the watch’s packaging to the backings. The watch comes with two straps — dark olive and yellow — and a box etched with the phrase, “when the warm end comes and the clock stops who will live beneath the remains.” It’s an enigmatic statement reflecting the graphic that appears on the face of the watch: all the hour markers have been blurred. The face of the watch sees a black base, accented by Brain Dead’s logo at the center and Timex’s below it, white hour and minute hands and a yellow second hand. To match the face, the casing also comes in black, while Brain Dead branding is placed at the back. Other details like acrylic belt loops on the watch’s ballistic ripstop strap round up the design.
Keep a look out for a re-stock of the Brain Dead x Timex 40mm Fabric Strap Watch at Timex’s website for $109 USD.
