As a rule, avoiding the comments section is just about the best thing you can do on the whole damn internet. Unless, of course, you’re talking about the comments section on Todd Snyder’s website, which is a weird and wonderful respite from the general awfulness that suffuses the rest of the world wide web. The dudes who log on to tell other dudes about the ins and outs of their latest purchases might just be the purest people on the planet.
“My wife kept wearing my original Mod Watch- so I bought her the Olive for Valentine’s Day. Now I have two to choose from, too!” says verified buyer Jeffrey H. “Love the vintage aesthetic! Highly recommended for all u hipsters and fashion forward guys,” declares Sherwin R. Can you imagine this much good will being dropped into the digital ether anywhere else? It’s like Twitter, except it doesn’t make you want to give up on people as a concept. If Snyder made his own social app, I’d be the first to sign up.
Anyway. The watch Jeffrey and Sherwin are so into is the olive green iteration of the Todd Snyder + Timex Mod Watch, one of the earlier designs in the ongoing collaboration between the New York City-based designer and the storied timekeeping brand. It’s one of those pieces that manages to ably split the difference between mid-century aesthetics and contemporary appeal, so it should come as no surprise that its fans are legion. What does feel a little unexpected, though, is the fact that it’s currently on sale for 42% off the original price.
Does this kind of markdown mean you’re legally required to purchase a Mod Watch right now? Maybe! I don’t know the law. But I do know that anyone, legally obligated to or not, would benefit from entering the Todd Snyder Social Media Extended Universe. It’s time to comment like everyone’s watching and bring some humanity back to the internet. And this watch is a damn fine way in. So, what are you waiting for?
