Category: Gear

Military garb continues to be a major influence in the fashion world, so you can’t go wrong these days with accessories and apparel inspired by gear made for the battlefield. An upgraded reissue of the ‘80s civilian version of the U.S. Army model, the Timex Archive Camper MK1 mixes retro style with modern-day elements.

Built with a 36mm resin case, a precise quartz movement, and an 18mm military-inspired grosgrain strap, this timepiece is built to be used anywhere from the city to the great outdoors. It’s also water-resistant up to 30 meters just in case you decide to go out to sea for a full day of fishing. For a vintage finishing touch, the strap features a military-inspired patch. A classic timepiece reborn for the contemporary world, the Camper MK1 Watch is available right now in two colorways for $75.

Purchase: $75
