We're very happy to announce the arrival of our latest Special Edition, a watch dedicated to the fascinating history of Camden Market and the building which now houses our very own flagship store.
The No.29 Horse Hospital Edition is exclusively available in our flagship and will never be sold elsewhere.
Camden Market was originally developed in 1839 as the Camden Goods Depot, the London terminus for goods traffic from both the railways and the canals.
As the area continued to grow, more warehouses for the goods and more stables for the Victorian working horses moving the goods were needed, leading to the construction of the Stables Yard.
In 1883, a two storey building was erected in the North-West corner of the Stables Yard. It accommodated 92 horses over 2 floors, including 12 loose boxes that were provided for resting tired or injured horses and led to this building becoming known as the “Horse Hospital”.
The design of our Horse Hospital special edition is inspired by the colours and features found on British WWI trench watches; a thick leather strap, a dark dial with bright, legible colours and touches of luminous details. It retails only in Camden at £135.

What with the Christmas rush, new products being launched and numerous photoshoots, here at Camden Watch HQ we feel as though we haven't made enough of a fuss about something. And this deserves a fuss.
Because we have made our own signature blend of tea.
We are very happy to be offering free Christmas wrapping for the second year running, in store and online.
Only this year it's better, because this year, our wrapping has a story to tell.
As some of you may have already heard, The Camden Watch Company has a brand new home!
We'd been looking for a place for a while that we could use as a shop, showroom and studio all rolled into one and we have finally found a place to call our own in the North Yard of the iconic Camden Stables Market.
