Filson Expands into Watches

Seattle-based outdoor heritage brand Filson is having a moment and we couldn’t be more excited for it. Not done with being the coolest kid on the outdoor heritage block—remember those camera bags that made you want to go old school and ditch the camera phone and that limited-edition AEV Brute Double Cab truck?—the company has just unveiled its first-ever collection of watches.

True to form, Filson chose to collaborate with a company known for its high-caliber work—Shinola, one of our own favorite homegrown brands recently profiled here. Yet perhaps what makes this launch more notable is its breadth: two case designs and 25 styles. The Mackinaw Field 43mm design series comprises three-hand and chronograph styles, while the Journeyman 44mm design series comes as GMT and chronographs with a rotating world timer feature. All styles, powered by Shinola’s Argonite movement, are rated 20 ATM with a screw-down crown and anti-reflective coated, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Bringing it home are straps made with bridle leather and dry tin cloth. (Filson also offers a variety of straps in nylon, rubber and luxurious Horween leather.)

The watches are expected to retail between $600 and $1,100 through Filson stores, Filson.com and select retailers in March, but you can already get a jump on the collection here. That said, we’re also keeping an eye out for two rubber strap style additions to the Journeyman series coming in April. Consider them the perfect accessory to next season’s denim everything craze.
