British independent design brand The Camden Watch Company (www.camdenwatchcompany.com), founded by wife and husband team Anneke Short and Jerome Robert, have launched their first all Swiss Made Automatic timepiece with the launch of their No.274 range.
While The Camden Watch Company has variations of cases and dial designs, this will be their first new case model in five years.
The No.274 case comes in at ø 38 mm, firmly a unisex watch. The two-piece case, featuring varying finishes from the high polished bezel to the brushed side. The dial is the perfect combination of contemporary design with vintage inspiration.
The guilloché lines are inspired by the criss-crossing ironwork of the imposing gasworks structures that can be found along the canal from Kings Cross to Camden. These structures are huge. Giant, imposing monolithic like buildings that are robust and strong in design and yet somehow still elegant, refined even.
The timepieces are available on Italian leather straps as well as mesh straps.
Although The Camden Watch Company currently use some Swiss made movements in their collections, this is their first entirely Swiss made watch. It houses a Sellita movement from the town of La Chaux-de-Fonds, the very town where co-founder Jerome was born.
Additionally, there is a new No.274 Swiss Made Automatic Memento Mori edition based on their best-selling Memento Mori collection.
Anneke Short, Co-Founder and Designer of The Camden Watch Company say: “We’re so happy to finally be launching our Swiss Made collection, many years in the making. As an Anglo-Swiss business, it’s so great to be able to add this to our current offering and we’re so proud of this watch”
Founded in 2014 by the Anglo-Swiss duo Anneke Short and Jerome Robert, The Camden Watch Company timepieces are designed in Camden, inspired by British heritage and the rich industrial past and vibrant present of the local area.
With prices from £69, they use all their high-end expertise to create beautiful yet affordable timepieces, which can be purchased on their website or at one of their three bricks and mortar stores in Camden and Greenwich.
