Japan’s SOPHNET Celebrates 20th Anniversary with END. x Timex MK1 Watch Collaboration

END. and Timex are collaborating once again, this time tapping iconic Japanese brand SOPHNET to introduce an edit to a duo of heritage military MK1 timepieces. Coinciding with the 20th anniversary of Hirofumi Kiyonaga’s Tokyo-based label, Timex’s history blends with SOPHNET’s minimal, detail-focused aesthetic. The end result comes as a fresh take on the original army issue MK1 watch from the 1980s. In what’s expected from SOPHNET, the watch here takes something more rugged and distills things down to understated elegance. You’ve got your option of either a black or white dial, with both options featuring an orange second hand and an interchangeable black webbing strap and a buckle closure.

The collaborative effort comes in a tonal, white box that’s embossed with SOPH. branding. Look for the END. x SOPHNET. x Timex MK1 watches to launch exclusively via the END. Launches platform tomorrow, October 12th.
