The streetwear label Carhartt WIP has teamed up with tradition-steeped watchmaker Timex for a functional update of the classic Acadia field watch. Designed to be both timeless and durable, the watch features an INDIGLO night-light, 12 and 24 hour time settings, Easy-Set Quick-Date, and a distinct arrowhead second hand. And based on Timex’s all-terrain Acadia model and complete with two custom-labelled double layer NATO style slip-thru straps, the watch ties in closely with Carhartt WIP’s bulletproof Military program.
„Time may look like the enemy in everyday warfare, but this timepiece comes as a loyal companion, crafted with care down to the most minute detail. It is particularly lightweight and water-resistant up to 50 meters—meaning ready for action. Anytime, anywhere.“
Water-resistant up to 50 meters and available in both black and olive drab, the Carhartt WIP x Timex Field Watch is available for $158 USD in stores, from Carhartt WIP’s online shop and at selected Carhartt WIP retailers from the 3rd of March 2017.
