From Field to Fashion: The Evolution of the Timex Camper into the MK-1 Amalfi

In an exciting collaboration, Todd Snyder and Timex revisit a timeless classic, giving the iconic Camper a luxurious makeover. Known for its durability and affordability, Timex's ethos of "Takes a licking and keeps on ticking" is perfectly embodied in the Camper, a watch that has stood the test of time since its debut in the 1980s. Fast forward to today, and the collaboration has birthed the Todd Snyder x Timex MK-1 Amalfi, transforming the utilitarian field watch into a piece of art that wouldn't look out of place on the wrist of the suavest characters from the mid-20th century.

The MK-1 Amalfi is a nod to the elegance of the '50s and '60s dress watches, diverging significantly from its military-inspired predecessor. It retains the mechanical heart and general shape that fans love but introduces a series of upgrades that elevate it from its humble beginnings. Featuring a polished stainless steel case, a cream-colored dial with gold-tone indices and hands, and a tan leather strap that hints at its military roots while exuding luxury, the Amalfi is a testament to Timex's ability to evolve without losing sight of its heritage. Priced at an accessible $239, this watch promises quality, durability, and style, proving that classic designs can indeed be timeless.

True to the Timex archives, this MK1 stainless steel 36mm has been enhanced with a 20-jewel hand-wound movement. It gives an old-fashioned interpretation to their first Camper model from the 80’s. Wind the crown until you feel a slight resistance — this is best done at the same time each day to keep the watch continually running. This new mechanical watch is also water-resistant up to 50 meters, and features a military-inspired, two-piece tan leather strap.
