Following multiple sold-out collaborations with that virtuoso of vintage, Nigel Cabourn, Timex have teamed up with his eponymous brand once again.
His naval-gazing military obsession shines through again, this time via a new take on the archetypal Naval Officers Watch. This watch draws inspiration from timepieces worn by Royal Navy Captains on Arctic convoys in the North Sea during WWII. The watch even comes in context with a specially finished case made to emulate sea-air corrosion, a nod to the weathered look of military boats and seafaring equipment of the era. What will they think of next?
So much of what we wear these days can be tracked back to military clothing, and this well-priced, everyday timepiece is no different.
Priced at £159, it’s available now at timex.co.uk
