Never Mind the Bollocks, here is the Camden Watch Company Punk Rock watch

0

Independent British watch business The Camden Watch Company likes to adopt historic references from its North London neighbourhood in its timepieces.

Having taken design inspiration from the Victorian architecture of Camden, it is now delving into its more recent cultural history with a watch paying tribute to the Punk movement that was born in the area in the 1970s.

In 1976, American band The Ramones played at Camden Town’s Roundhouse venue and the next night at Dingwalls, another Camden iconic venue.  It was on that night at Dingwalls, band members from a then unknown Sex Pistols and members of a just formed The Clash along with band members of The Ramones got into a brawl with The Stranglers.  And many say this is when the British punk rock movement was born.

The movement is distilled into the dial of the Camden Watch Company Punk Rock, which goes on sale on December 9 for £150.

The watch is based on the architecture of the company’s No. 29 watch. It comes in a 43mm black ion-plated case surrounding a black dial with pops of neon colours throughout particularly around the Roman numeral hour markers inspired by The Sex Pistols album cover Never Mind the Bollocks, Here’s The Sex Pistols.  It has a seconds sub-dial featuring a neon orange hand.
