No.29 Watch

No.29 Watch

A true gentleman's watch, the No.29 is inspired by Victorian pocket watches. With its tapered case, a mix of old and modern numbers on the dial, and a subtle pop of colour, this classic watch is anything but ordinary. 


Inspiration Behind No.29 Watch


The No.29 is heavily based on Camden's railway heritage, inspired by classic pocket watches as worn by Victorian train conductors.


There are a number of key elements on the dial of the No.29 that we drew from vintage pocket watches; the tall, thin roman numerals, the seconds sub-dial, the outer minute track, and the thin faceted hands.

Now that we had our base, we could start reworking and modernising its look and feel. We added a second level to the dial to give it a more interesting relief and we outlined the external minute track, turning it into what is colloquially known as a 'train-track' minute indicator.

Most importantly, we used sharp Arabic numbers on the sub-dial and added a flash of colour on the second's hand and the circular outline.

As a finishing touch, we matched the stitching on the bracelet to the sub-dial accent colour.



Traditional pocket watch cases are generally quite curved with domed crystals. This lends a very conservative and classical look to the watch, which was not what we wanted.

Instead, we used a flat crystal and designed a case that is modern and stylish, with a beveled side that slims the case and reduces bulk, using a mix of brushed and polished finishes to further refine the design.


As a continuation of the pocket watch theme, we designed the crown to look like those often found on pocket watches, engraved with the Camden Watch 'C' as a final subtle flourish.
