The holidays grow closer by the day. That's true all year, but you really feel it when December comes along, forcing you to actually start thinking about what to buy and what to wear and how to keep it all together before the calendar flips over and you have another 11 months of not-thinking-about-it to look forward to. (I recognize that there may be people who don't fret about this stuff, or who prepare themselves for the season without having to see a "12" at the start of the date, but I refuse to acknowledge them any further.)

So, as you prep for the days ahead—the gifting, the celebrating, and all that—allow me to apprise you of some good news: Todd Snyder and Timex are back at it, and they just released a new watch that's specially tailored to the holiday season.

The Welton Bi-Metal came out earlier this year, a mid-century inspired design that's also an homage to Todd Snyder's father, who wore a similar watch. But, in keeping with the celebratory vibe of this particular time of year, this new version is dressed up in gold. Not 14K gold, mind you—we're talking about an affordable Timex here—but a gold-tone stainless steel case, with a silver-tone dial and (you guessed it) gold-tone indices and hands.

Altogether, it's a fun but refined look. One you can wear to every upcoming party, or wrap inside some nice, colorful paper and present to someone you care about. Honestly, it might be an even more successful iteration of the design than the OG. But hey, maybe that's just me. I've got no real propensity for planning, as I've already explained, but at least I've got holiday spirit.
