Timex is known for offering durable, well-crafted and classic designed watched at affordable prices. It’s no stranger to collaborations either, and it’s just dropped its famed ‘Waterbury’ timepiece having teamed up with online fashion retailer, Mr Porter.
Timex’s expertise lies in its history, dating back to 1854 with the founding of the Waterbury clock company in the town of Waterbury, Connecticut. Don’t be fooled though, Timex is a thoroughly modern company. As the brand’s creative director Giorgio Galli explains, “The case design, materials, dial graphics and leather straps all pay homage to the origins of the Timex brand, yet the design is clean and modern.”
Collaborating with Mr Porter to offer an exclusive ‘Waterbury’ collection the watch is based off of the simple, classic designs of the Timex’s traditional Waterbury collection. This exclusive range is available in three new revamped styles, the Timex Mr Porter timepieces are minimal, clean and celebrate simplicity in design.
With 38mm cases, the faces of this exclusive range have been designed using the online retailers’ colour palette of black and white, paying tribute to the classic colours of the ‘Mr Porter’ man. Classic black and white dials are joined with timeless leather straps in both black and tan to create a sleek and modern watch that can be worn every day.
Finally, the best part about the release of these three stylish watches is the affordable price – with each Timex Mr Porter coming out at £120. Head over to the Mr Porter Website for more details.
