As part of the collab, the two have produced a limited edition 36mm stainless steel Nam watch, inspired by the Camper-style watches worn by soldiers during the Vietnam War. Boasting a L34 Ventile® strap and an additional distressed leather slip-through strap that can be changed, the timepiece’s black dial has a Broad Arrow pointing towards the 12 o’clock position, and a vintage orange second-hand. The use of the Broad Arrow for government goods goes all the way back to Sir Philip Sidney, Joint Master of the Ordnance in 1585, whose family used the Broad Arrow in its coat of arms.
Priced at $170 USD, the timepiece is presented in a cotton drill and herringbone army mending kit. Availability begins Friday, March 9 at Nigel Cabourn locations in London, Japan, select retailers in Asia, as well as through END.. The timepiece will also be available at a number of worldwide stockists, so be sure to keep your eyes open following official release.
