YMC x Timex: The Timex Capsule
two widely revered brands will be releasing a rather special, limited edition timepiece: the YMC x Timex MK1TM.
British brand YMC and iconic American brand, Timex, worked together closely to add subtle nuances of the YMC design aesthetic to the recently reinvented MK1 silhouette, creating a covetable timepiece for those lucky enough to get their hands on one.
Originally issued to the U.S. Marines in 1982, the Timex MK1 was ostensibly a throw away, disposable watch. A stripped back aesthetic coupled with a closed case and batteries that couldn’t be replaced made it easy to mass produce for the military.
In 2016, Timex rereleased the original 1982 model, upgraded and updated, giving watch wearers something to cherish and something built to last.
The 2019 YMC x Timex MK1 is understated and subtle, available in the signature seasonal YMC hue ‘burnt rubber brown.’ This reinvented watch with an equally simple and complicated past is sure to be something YMC and Timex fans will feel proud to wear.
