The original watch that “Takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’ ” was never meant stick around. As battery powered watches began to overtake manual and automatic, the US Army specified for a timepiece that could still work with significant damage and then be thrown away rather than repaired.
That watch was the Timex Mk-1 Camper, and guess what? This watch has clawed its way out of the garbage and back onto our wrists. This civilian reissue commemorates the 30th anniversary of the Mk-1, so now you too can break it and toss it and have it bide its time for revenge.
