This month, an old friend from uni recommended me for a job with Timex – which was nice! I duly quoted, got the job and found myself in a club called The Beat, just around the corner from New Broadcasting House, at a rather special launch event. Timex have joined forces with Barclaycard’s bPay to bring us the contactless watch, enabling wearers to make purchases up to £30 with just a swipe of the wrist. Invited guests enjoyed cocktails and canapés as they explored the new product, with plenty of technical expertise on hand from both Timex and Barclaycard. They were also able to have their watches personalised with stamped initials. I took along some wide angle support in the shape of fellow photographer Kevin Nixon and between us we were able to capture a complete narrative, from the fine detailing through to the party people. A really great event, and hopefully Timex will invite us back. In the meantime…I just need to get my hands on one of those timeless timepieces…Christmas shopping here we come. Did I really mention the C word…!!??
