Blasts from the pasts aren't always a good thing, but in the case of Timex's newest collection, "Originals," we're psyched to go back to the future, as it were. The line features a series of "remixed" designs from the brands archives, from the vintage, round-faced styles that are perfect for a military look, or a plastic model with a stripey nylon strap that wouldn't look amiss in The Preppy's Handbook. Our faves? The Timex 80s, which oversize the iconic digital watches from the era and introduce them in some fashion-forward colors. The best part? The whole range is $100 or less. If you're looking to peep the time-keepers early, Henri Bendels is inviting you to join guests like Olivia Palermo and Kelly Rutherford tonight—you can preview the collection, jam out with DJ Reach, and do some star spotting. Other past blasts need not apply, AKA our high-school boyfriend, or last week's blind date.
Thursday, August 19; 6-8:00 p.m.; Henri Bendel, 712 5th Avenue (at 56th Street); 212- 247-1100
