Construction Time Again

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.

Automatics for the People

During the 1960’s, prior to the revolution of quartz technology, timepieces operated through a mechanical watch movement. Two types of mechanical watches exist: the manual hand-wind and the automatic wind.

timex marlin automatic

Recently Timex launched the critically-acclaimed and commercially-successful hand-wind Marlin and now is following that up with an automatic Marlin. A timely take on the original, the new automatic Marlin maintains the classic look of the hand-wind, but in a 40mm size.

Unlike hand-wind watches that need to be wound each day, an automatic, if worn daily, is automatically wound by the movement of the wearer. This movement will drive the weighed rotor to move, which winds the watch automatically.

The mechanical watch movement is driven by a spring (called a mainspring) which must be wound periodically. The release of the energy held in the mainspring is transmitted through a series of gears to power the balance wheel, a weighted wheel which oscillates back and forth at a constant rate.

Often referred to as being ‘Analog in a Digital World’, automatic watches have a special place among watch enthusiasts who prefer the craftsmanship and artistry when compared to more common quartz watch movement.

Currently, the Marlin automatic is the only automatic watch made by Timex and pairs stainless steel, domed crystal and mechanical movements with the timeless sophistication of a sleek mid-century design. We’ve carefully selected every single detail to create a watch that takes a licking but keeps on ticking.

Crystalized

If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then crystals are her muse. The Timex and Swarovski® partnership has been delivering whimsical and beautiful crystal adorned Timex® watches and the tradition continues with select pieces from the women’s line.

Recently Timex launched a crystal renaissance with a subtle touch to the Weekender® Fairfield collection. This timepiece produced just the right touch of glamour with an elegant row of Swarovski® crystals on the watch strap.

Crystals continued to integrate with Timex watches when the Miami featured a dazzling circle of Swarovski® crystals around the bezel.

Timex and Swarovski® then upped the ante in terms of crystal watch embellishment and brought out two collections that allowed for creative crystal design.

The Crystal Bloom collection saw the watch dials introduced to crystals as flower patterns blossomed throughout a series of leather and bracelet strap timepieces. By telling a floral story on the petals with carefully sprinkled crystals, Timex created beautiful women’s watches and then expanded the designs to include entire dial fabric styles that offered some glitz but in a subtle manner.

In the Fall of 2018, Timex and Swarovski® continued a shared passion for innovation and the Crystal Opulence collection emerged. Bolder yet still elegant, the Opulence line features expertly crafted timepieces with creative displays of shimmering crystals.

Two styles feature dials textured and showered with Swarovski® crystals. One has a smart corral of crystals on the perimeter of the dial to create a sophisticated look that is available with a gold-tone case or black case. And the other is pure opulence with either a blue or black dial layered with a glittering fabric of crystals for a penultimate statement piece.

Best Minimalist Watches

Clean lines, streamlined shapes and monochromatic colors – sound like your closet? With your minimalist style, you rock high-quality basics and look effortlessly refined no matter where you’re headed. The only thing you’re missing is the minimalist watch to complete every look.

Simple watch design is far from boring – and these watches often have an alluring air of timeless sophistication. Simple is also versatile, so you’ll certainly get a lot of wear out of a time-telling companion with minimalist design and features.

1. The Fairfield
With clean lines and discreet dial markings, the Fairfield Slip-Thru 41mm Leather Strap Watch may be the only watch you’ll ever need. That’s because its minimalist dial design pairs well with any strap, and slip-thru technology allows you to easily switch between bands.

Going Back to Cali

timex mk1 california

The state of California is an ever-changing and transcendent landscape. Many styles come and go in the land of sun and fun, but for many, it was the halcyon heydays of the 70s and 80s that typify California style. Beaches, surfing, board shorts and vibrant colors were all part of the fashion trend that made everyone pine for a little of the Cali lifestyle.

timex mk1 california

Timex brings back the classic era with a modern version of the military-inspired MK1 California, vibrant and colorful timepieces available only on Timex.com.

timex mk1 california

The watch is based on the simple design of the MK1 Aluminum, but with a wave of color that makes each style stand out. Pink, yellow, orange and blue abound on these fabric strap watches that feature a domed acrylic crystal tinted in the different shades that swim from the case and onto the strap.

timex mk1 california

The MK California collection has all the reliability of our classic MK1 with the addition of colorful crystals and added comfort of a lightweight aluminum case and double-layer slip-thru strap. Other features include a 40mm case, 24-hour time markings, Indiglo® backlight and water-resistant up to 30 meters.

From the beach to the boardwalk or any occasion that could use a splash of color, the MK1 California is a perfect choice for making a stylish and colorful statement.

Wound Around the Marlin

During the 1960s, Timex scored a hit with the hand-wound Marlin® watch. Sensing the time was right for a reissue, Timex launched a highly successful update to the original in 2017 with a classic hand-wound mechanical movement.

Now, as demand for the Marlin continues, Timex is proud to partner with Mr. Porter and Todd Snyder in offering three new hand-wound Marlin styles with exclusive new color palettes and, for the first time ever, a design specifically made for women.

timex marlin

Hand-wind (also called manual wind) watches must be wound daily to prevent the movement from stopping. This is perfect for Marlin owners who most likely will make strapping on their Marlin a part of their morning routine. Simply wind the watch until you feel resistance on the crown. This should be repeated every day to prevent the watch from stopping.

Referred to as the Gentlemen’s Standard, the Timex Marlin pairs the purity and pleasure of a hand-wound mechanical movement with the timeless sophistication of a sleek design. The only hand-wound timepiece available by Timex, the Marlin has earned commercial and critical success and a new audience of watch enthusiasts who adore the reissue of a true mechanical watch.

timex marlin

Featuring a stainless-steel case, genuine leather strap or mesh band, 34mm case size, 18mm lug width and water-resistant up to 30 meters, the Marlin is a contemporary take on a timeless classic.

The three new Marlin hand-wound timepieces include: a stainless-steel case with a domed acrylic crystal and lizard pattern leather strap in black with gold-tone finish; a women’s version with white leather strap and rose gold-tone finish; and an all stainless-steel version with a mesh band.

timex marlin

The popularity of the Marlin has allowed Timex to offer two styles to exclusive men’s fashion sites, Toddsnyder.com (stainless-steel mesh band) and Mrporter.com (lizard pattern leather strap in black with gold-tone finish).

Elegant, classic and expertly crafted, the Timex hand-wound Marlins are a must for any watch enthusiast or anyone looking to make a sophisticated statement with their watch.

The Story of the MK1

TIMEX has a long history of producing military-inspired timepieces, but the most iconic style was the Mil-Spec W-46374B. This watch was manufactured for a very short period of time (two months, February and March, 1982) to standards that destined it to be a true throw-away watch. The case back on the original style could not be taken off to change the battery or make repairs and the simple movement and lightweight body made it truly disposable. Issued to the US Marines in 1982, this was the very beginning of the MK1 story.

timex mk1 watch

In 2016, TIMEX re-released the original 1982 MK1™ using a resin case with selected retailers globally. The light-weight appeal remains but the watch is no longer disposable and is constructed with the TIMEX stamp of quality, built to last.

In 2017, TIMEX adapts the revered MK1, using a contemporary adaptation of the iconic style, the MK1™ Aluminum stays true to TIMEX’ history of creativity and innovation. Lightweight and durable, the aluminum grade chosen for the MK1 is usually reserved for architectural applications.

For 2018 the new MK1™ Stainless Steel carries a tough look and feel. We’ve strengthened the case to bring solid performance to our military-inspired collection. The MK1 Steel delivers a strong profile to attain distinction and quality, with an acrylic domed crystal it is complemented by a premium Italian woven fabric with steel eyelets to ensure a durable fit. Also, available with chronograph features to create additional functionality.
