In the second collaboration between Timex and British designer Nigel Cabourn, the two companies have created a 1950s style of timepiece that pays homage to Scunthorpe, England, and football (soccer).
The Timex x Nigel Cabourn watch comes in a 40 mm diameter MK1 stainless steel case with a domed acrylic crystal and a dial that references referees stopwatches of the time, with a three-quarter red section that represents halftime (45 minutes). It’s worth noting that this is not a stopwatch and does not have a rotating bezel so the dial is more about form than function.
From the cream-colored, custom fluted crown, etched caseback, S.B. Foot Tanning Co. one-piece leather strap, additional bi-color one-piece fabric strap, to the custom army mending kit packaging, you get a lot of the Nigel aesthetic for the money. The watch is quartz powered and has a retail price of $162.
The Timex x Nigel Cabourn watch is available at the Nigel Cabourn Army Gym London, in Covent Garden, at Cabourn stores, and select retailers in Japan, Asia, and Canada. In addition, menswear retailer END. Clothing will carry the watch.
