This summer, independent British watch brand, The Camden Watch Co., proudly introduce their special edition Camden x KPP Cycling Watch, designed in collaboration with cyclist Kitty Pemberton-Platt and inspired by vintage cycling.
Celebrating the UK’s long-standing love affair with the bicycle, The Camden Watch Co. have worked on this special edition design, drawing inspiration from the style and aesthetics of vintage cycling, all the while ensuring that the watch retains its modern and minimalist look.
A word from The Camden Watch Company
“Cycling has always been a passion of ours — we even have a small Camden Watch Co. cycling team — so working on this watch with Kitty was a delight. From small cycling details that we had never noticed ourselves to great anecdotes about cycling adventures, we not only learnt a lot but we had fun doing it.”
Full of details such as the subtle spoke design in the center of the dial, the jersey-style embossed letters on the strap, saddle-inspired studs, and the gear-shaped crown, the Camden x KPP Cycling edition is a watch that cyclists will relish and non-cyclists will be able to appreciate based on its style alone.
The watch comes on a white-stitched tan strap or as a Club Kit edition that comes with an extra nylon strap, for your time on the bike, and an enamel Camden x KPP Club badge.
A word from Kitty Pemberton-Platt
“I’ve been wearing Camden Watch Company timepieces for the past few years and I love their attention to detail and overall design. Working on this watch with Anneke and Jerome and being able to combine my two loves of cycling and design truly was a dream come true.”
I have always been obsessed with aesthetics. I still have a painting framed from when I was 5 years old. Design, photography and making things look ‘right’ has found itself into everything I do. Then riding came along. Over the past four years, I have evolved from a complete amateur, toppling over at traffic lights, to now designing my entire life around cycling. Community, culture, lifestyle and work.
The Camden x KPP Cycling edition will debut at this year’s Eroica Festival, 16th – 18th June.
