It’s beginning to really feel – to me – like Timex has come to phrases with the platform they’ve received with the Marlin Automatic lineup, and have been customizing it for some fascinating seems. We reviewed a California dial model just lately, and now they’ve come out with one extending their Peanuts lineup, the Timex Marlin Beagle Scout.
In phrases of the watch itself – the way it works, the way it matches, and the like – this must be no totally different than the Cali dial model we reviewed. So I’d counsel you test that out to see what it’s like in the true world. So, then, what makes the Timex Marlin Beagle Scout fascinating? Well, it’s clearly that Peanuts partnership. The characters created by Charles Schulz are endearing and immediately recognizable.
And in our home, they’re in excessive demand. Since our oldest daughter found the Peanuts cartoon books on the library, they’ve been in fixed rotation, being learn and skim and skim. Plenty of Peanuts characters, and there was even a pilgrimage out to the museum and ice rink out in California. It was from that journey that they introduced me again two totally different Beagle Scout patches (one with Snoopy, one with Woodstock).
Why was that? Well, I’m really an Eagle Scout (and yeah, I’m happy with that accomplishment), so the meshing of my path and the enjoyment my children get from Peanuts, properly, it was simply serendipity. On the watch, it’s achieved subtly, however noticeably. The dial is completed in a darkish coloration (seems black from the images) with a sketch of troop chief Snoopy mountain climbing alongside. Side observe – in my head canon, he’s received a National Parks Ranger hat on, as a result of these issues simply look superior.
So, positive, Snoopy is there entrance and heart on the Timex Marlin Beagle Scout – nevertheless it’s not so overbearing that I believe you’d be catching grief for carrying a “children cartoon” watch. And I’d argue, properly, the Peanuts are timeless, and a large number of us grew up with them and respect them, throughout generations. If you weren’t into Scouting, maybe the $259 Timex Marlin Beagle Scout isn’t for you. For the Scouters, although, it’s the watch equal of consolation meals. Now they simply must up the WR score so it’s actually prepared for tenting… timex.com
