Last year, Timex released the Marlin as a tribute to a vintage piece found in the brand’s archive. The new model featured the same 34mm case, Art Deco numerals, and manually wound movement (except this time it was made in China, and is likely a Seagull – nothing wrong with that!). The new Marlin sold out instantly and was then later released with a black dial by our friends at Todd Snyder as the Marlin Blackout. This go around, Timex has released the very first Marlin for women, with a rose gold–colored case and a silvered dial. Technically, the watch is exactly the same, but the new colorway makes it look completely different.
The Timex Marlin quickly became a fan favorite. With it’s $199 price tag and good looks, the Marlin flew off the internet shelves as swiftly as it was stocked. The first version and then the Marlin Blackout were both equally as popular and now with this new ladies’ version in rose gold I am sure it will see the same. As I have lamented before, there are very few women’s watches that you can find that are both attractive and under $500 (unless you’re looking at something like a Daniel Wellington). This Marlin ticks all the boxes and comes in at just $199, so if you’re looking for an affordable ladies’ watch, this one is it.
