Cred­it: Looptworks

Wel­come back, Clym­bers. It’s an around-the-world event today, with brands hail­ing from Swe­den and the Unit­ed States. We’ve got some awe­some alpine and fit­ness watch­es from Timex, tech­ni­cal ski appar­el from Cross, and eco-friend­ly cloth­ing from our friends at Port­land-based Looptworks.

From Timex, which has been mak­ing watch­es since its hum­ble begin­nings as the Water­bury Clock Com­pa­ny in 1854, to Loopt­works, which start­ed in 2009 and is rev­o­lu­tion­iz­ing appar­el-mak­ing with its resource-light approach—Looptworks uti­lizes excess tex­tiles to make lim­it­ed-edi­tion cloth­ing runs—today’s event fea­tures cool brands with excit­ing sto­ries and awe­some prod­ucts. Enjoy!

Here’s a lit­tle more about today’s events:

Timex: Altime­ter? Check. Barom­e­ter? Check. Com­pass and alarm? Check and check. Chrono­graph for log­ging a new per­son­al best? Check. A hun­dred years ago, the instru­men­ta­tion need­ed to access all this infor­ma­tion would fill a ruck­sack. The Timex WS4, designed for mod­ern-day alpine adven­tur­ers, keeps it all on your wrist. Get all the tech­nol­o­gy you’ll ever need and maybe even a lit­tle extra with the W4 and oth­er Timex Men’s and Women’s alpine and fit­ness watch­es, on sale today at The Clymb for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Cross: Cross is head­quar­tered in Möl­ndal, or “Val­ley of the Mills,” on the west coast of Swe­den. Möl­ndal is named for all the wind and water­mills that fueled the ear­ly indus­tri­al­iza­tion of the region. This nat­u­ral­ly pow­ered metrop­o­lis is the per­fect birth­place of a brand ded­i­cat­ed to enabling human-pow­ered ath­letes to express their per­son­al­i­ties through unique­ly styled per­for­mance gar­ments. Express your­self today on The Clymb, with Men’s and Women’s Cross tech­ni­cal ski appar­el for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

Loopt­works: Loopt­works has turned the way tra­di­tion­al appar­el com­pa­nies man­u­fac­ture cool cloth­ing inside out: Instead of design­ing col­lec­tions more than a year in advance, it short­ens the devel­op­ment cycle to weeks. Instead of using the world’s lim­it­ed resources to man­u­fac­ture brand new fab­rics, Loopt­works uses top-qual­i­ty, excess mate­ri­als and com­po­nents that already exist. Instead of pro­duc­ing huge flash-fash­ion sea­son­al col­lec­tions like tra­di­tion­al appar­el man­u­fac­tur­ers, Loopt­works offers fresh, num­bered, lim­it­ed-edi­tion eco-friend­ly cloth­ing. Get in the loop with Men’s and Wom­en’s Loopt­works appar­el and mes­sen­ger bags, on sale today for mem­ber-exclu­sive pricing.

PLUSThere’s still time to save on KAVU, COAL, Uclear, MPG, & Dan­nyShane. 

Tick­ing off Mad Men: Did you know? Timex’s icon­ic “It takes a lick­ing and keeps on tick­ing” ad cam­paign, intro­duced in the 1950’s and brought back in the 1990’s, ranked as num­ber 40 on Ad Age’s list of the Top 100 Ad Cam­paigns of the 20th Cen­tu­ry. In 2003, Timex hired a new mar­ket­ing firm that decid­ed to scrap the slo­gan in favor of, “Timex. Life is tick­ing,” out­rag­ing Don Drap­ers around the coun­try. Timex kept on tick­ing hap­pi­ly through the wave of pub­lic­i­ty sur­round­ing the switch and con­tin­ues to pro­duce inno­v­a­tive watch­es that take one heck of a beating.
