Timex, a name synonymous with reliable timekeeping, has partnered with The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to create a collection of watches that seamlessly blend art and functionality. The result? The Timex x The Met Collection, is a stunning lineup that allows you to wear iconic art on your wrist, making high art accessible to a broader audience.

This unique collaboration transforms wristwatches into wearable pieces of art, bringing masterpieces from The Met’s illustrious collection into everyday life. Available exclusively on Timex’s online store, each watch in the collection is priced at an approachable $99.00, making it an affordable way to own a piece of history.

The star of the collection is the Modern Easy Reader, which reimagines Van Gogh’s “Self-Portrait with a Straw Hat.” The vivid colors of the painting adorn the dial and extend along the leather strap, all housed in a sleek silver-tone case. Behind the beauty lies a reliable quartz movement and scratch-resistant mineral glass. Another is the Actor Nakamura Fukusuke I as Asahina Tōbei, a woodblock print created in 1854 by the revered Edo-period artist Utagawa Kunisada. A third rendition of the Modern Easy Reader boasts a stunning dial that showcases a detail from Gustav Klimt’s portrait of Mäda Primavesi.

For those who prefer a digital display, the T80 models offer a modern twist. One showcases Utagawa Hiroshige’s “Maples at Mama,” while the other features Katsushika Hokusai’s “Under the Wave off Kanagawa” against the backdrop of Mount Fuji. These watches bring serenity and power to your wrist, paying homage to iconic works of art.

The Timex x The Met Collection serves as a daily reminder of the beauty that art brings to life. It’s a fusion of form and function that allows art aficionados and watch enthusiasts alike to express their style while carrying a piece of history with them. Don’t miss the opportunity to own a watch that’s not just a timekeeper but also a work of art.
