Timex has just released its first collaboration with the fishing Abu Garcia.
With both brands possessing 100 years of experience —Abu Garcia is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year — the two brands are diving into their archives for an outdoor take on the original “Camper” watch. The watch features a stainless steel case instead of resin and is bead blasted to recreate the finish on Abu Garcia’s reels.
The 36mm watch comes with a simple black nylon strap and has a co-branded dial with bold red hands. The entire watch comes packaged in an Abu Garcia lure case as a nod to the Swedish fishing gear company’s roots. Priced at ¥22,000 JPY (approximately $190 USD), this watch will be available mid-December in Japan at select Timex stockists.
