Timex and Carhartt WIP (Work in Progress) continue their successful partnership with the launch of the special edition Camper MK1™ watch complete with premium display case. This follows the 2017 collaboration that saw a functional update to the classic field watch based on Timex’s Acadia model. The new Timex x Carhartt WIP is available October 2nd.
While Carhartt is known for its rugged outdoor clothing, Carhartt WIP has been carefully adapting and modifying Carhartt’s core product characteristics for a different audience of consumers who value refined design and quality while remaining true to Carhartt’s brand origins. Carhartt WIP builds on the Carhartt collection but offers consumers durable apparel with streetwear style including Pembroke cardigans, military backpacks, hooded jackets and trucker hats. And with the Timex x Carhartt WIP watch, the tradition of updating classic gear to reflect an urban lifestyle continues.
The Carhartt WIP brand, launched in 1994, builds a strong relationship with upcoming figures in music and sport to be an iconic and well-respected brand in underground and streetwear scenes. Carhartt WIP stores are located worldwide and have locations in major cities including London, New York and Tokyo.
Carhartt WIP again teams up with Timex to produce a modernized version of the first Camper model from the ‘80s. The collaborative timepiece features a stylish colorway complete with 100% fabric strap, lightweight resin case, custom designed dial with the Carhartt logo at the 3 o’clock marking, quartz movement and water resistant to 30m. A premium tin display case accompanies each watch.
By working with Carhartt WIP, Timex can expand on its rich watchmaking history and heritage by reaching a new target market worldwide. The Timex x Carhartt WIP watch will be sold exclusively in all Carhartt WIP stores, select retailers and on the Carhartt WIP website.
