Carhartt WIP & Timex Release Classy Camper MK1 Watch
Though we can’t deny we do love gawping at a luxury timepiece now and then, we are always on the lookout for a decent, functional everyday watch too. And one of our favourite drops in recent months comes from Carhartt WIP and Timex who have joined forces for the special edition Camper MK1 watch.
The Camper MK1 Watch is collaborative timepiece from Carhartt WIP and Timex, and is an updated version of the fist Camper model from back in the 80s originally launched as “a ‘civilian’ version of the watch originally adopted by the US Army for its function and durability,” according to Carhartt.
Hitting that sweet spot between smart and casual, making it perfect for those office-to-bar days, the MK1 features a lightweight resin case and quartz movement. The face itself is simple enough with a 12/24 hour dial, mint green accents on the hands and dial, and the Carhartt logo at 3 o’clock.
Wrapped in a bespoke grey colourway, the watch is completed with a fabric strap and has a water resistance of up to 30 metres. A premium tin display case is paired with every watch sold.
The Carhartt WIP & Timex Camper MK1 Watch is on sale now and is available at all Carhartt WIP stores worldwide, as well as on the Carhartt Website. It’s also a complete bargain at just £90.
If you do prefer the more luxe side of things, Bucherer has just expanded its cult collection with a brand new motorsport-inspired timepiece. The latest addition to their exclusive BLUE EDITIONS range, take a look at the TAG Heuer Formula 1 Bucherer Blue Editions.
