Timex archive MK1 Aluminum Silver Tone Case - Black Dial 40mm
the timex archive project combines historical know-how with a refined design aesthetic, a true expression of values that timex has passed on since 1854 to this day. part of the pioneers collection, the mk1 model is a re-release of the first camper model from the 80’s. a “civilian” version of the watch adopted by the us army for its convenience and functionality. this new anodized aluminum case, revised also in the width, is complimented with a ballistic nylon strap, a high strength material which is used for military spec equipment including parachute cords.
TimexThe Timex Archive project represents 160 years of watchmaking innovation and expertise. It all began with a group of artisans and craftsmen in the New England town of Waterbury, Connecticut. What that group created would ultimately become synonymous with time itself and propel timekeeping from the mantelpiece to the pocket, on to the wrist. The small and scrappy Waterbury Clock Company was the beginning of an American icon: Timex.
This signature collection celebrates and honors those pioneering craftsman. Inspired by our heritage the Timex Archive capsule collection presents a new generation of timeless watches for a new generation of pioneers.
