Timex began as the Waterbury Clock Company in 1854. The authentic watch company is based in Connecticut – U.S. During World War I they changed their pocket watches and added a canvas strap for military use. They did this for the artillery gunmen so they could calculate and read the time while they were into a gunfight. Now after 160+ years Timex celebrates their rich history with the special collab collection: Waterbury Red Wing. For this collab Timex teamed-up with heritage footwear brand Red Wing. For the Timex X Red Wing collab they used the beautiful Red Wing leather for the strap. The Waterbury Red Wing collection contains three models: 38 mm, 40 mm and 42 mm chronograph. The stainless steel case is contrasted by a dark face and subtle yellow numbers. This timeless Timex X Red Wing collab is now available here.
