We love great design and branding, and some of us at Shoreditch can even tell the time. So with these three things in mind, we visited the Camden Watch Company. Hidden away in the North Yard of Camden Stables Market. A 200-year-old Grade II listed building, which was once a horse hospital. There is even a limited edition watch celebrating this heritage. In fact, all their timepieces are inspired by Camden’s incredible history.
Founded by Anneke Short, a British watch designer who trained in Switzerland and Jerome Robert, a Swiss native born in Neuchatel, Switzerland, located in Switzerland’s famed “Watch Valley”. The CWCo are all about the details, from the diverse range of watch faces to the vintage packaging style and small fragments of Camden history dotted throughout the store. With the cherry on top being the tools bench counter where you will almost certainly be making an essential purchase.
So it goes without saying, if you ever find yourself in the Camden area, then we recommend you take the time for a visit.
