Introducing The Camden Watch Company

We were walking through the streets of Palermo in Sicily on a balmy summer evening, eating a delectable Gelato served in brioche, when Jerome turned to me and said:

"We should call it The Camden Watch Company."

In that moment, the whole brand seemed to fall into place. We had been searching for a name for our watch brand for so long, bouncing ideas off each other but never quite finding something that fit. As soon as he said it I knew that we had finally found what we had been looking for.

We live in Camden, we work in Camden, and more importantly - we love Camden. It's vibrant, creative, fun and teeming with a rich cultural heritage.

We set out on researching the history of Camden Town, from the famous market set up by a handful of artists in the seventies to the labyrinth of railway tunnels that run beneath it.

This in turn became the cornerstone of our brand. Each design needed to be contemporary and fashionable, but it also needed to respect the amazing past on which Camden is built.

And thus - The Camden Watch Company was born.

I love Watches. I collect them and I have Many of them. My wife and I took A dream trip to London for our first time. I left A watch at home not on purpose and I said to my wife when we got to London “I need to get a watch”. Our last full day in London we happened to come across the greenwhich market. Wow! What a find! My wife said to me you go look at watches and I’ll go in here. Well, I was In watch heaven. I wish I could Have purchased all of them. I love My new watch. It’s beautiful and I love The story behind it and I love the blue accent. I have no.29. Who ever reads this… get a Camden watch and you have history. You will love it. THANK YOU!!

Got the urge to buy another watch today, found you by accident while nonchalantly browsing nothing in particular. Impressed, Ordered my first Camden 88. To mean to pay for Express Delivery, so guess I’ll just have to wait until the end of the week. Thanks for the journey.

Recently one of our favourite magazines, Courier, held their second annual ‘Courier Live’ event at Republic London.

It was a great day featuring a ton of cool business, from jacket makers who sell out within minutes, to healthy juices and brutally honest greetings cards. If you weren’t able to go then we thoroughly recommend joining next year.

From mod to punk, cybergoth to bohemia, modern and vintage fashion blended together, inspired by the music and culture coming out of Camden.

We believe a meaningful collaboration requires three things:

1. A sharing of the the same values

2. Different yet complementary skills

3. A purpose and reason to exist

And from the word go, we've been looking to partner with a charity that fits this brief. When Camden Giving approached us about their 'Future Changemakers' programme, we knew instantly this was a purposeful project that we wanted to be part of.
