Timex Company Background

Timex History: During World War I, the US Army asked Timex to re-tool the Yankee pocket watch into a convenient new "wristwatch" for soldiers. In 1933, Timex produced the very first Mickey Mouse Clocks and watches, under an exclusive license from Walt Disney. Within just a few years, the company sold two million of these watches. In the 1950s came the introduction of the world's first inexpensive but reliable watch. Torture-test advertising campaigns promoted Timex watches with the tag-line: "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking."

Ever since watches moved from the pocket to the wrist, Timex has defined how the world tells time. For over 150 years, Timex has led the way providing affordable cutting-edge technology in trendsetting styles. For Timex, time began in 1854. Over the many years that followed, through wartime and peacetime, Timex watches have kept more than time: they've kept a promise of undaunted innovation.

Brand History

  • In 1986 Timex introduced the "Ironman Triathlon watch" that revolutionised sports timing with features and durability that were an instant hit with the dedicated athletes that inspired it. One of the most important ever introductions by Timex watches is the Indiglo backlight system. Invented by Timex in 1992, the Indiglo lamp uniformly lights the watch dial with a blue backlight, using Timex's unique leading electroluminescent technology.

  • Modern Day: Timex remain one of the only watchmakers in the world to manufacture all of their own movements. Timex Originals: paying homage to over 150 years of Timex heritage, the Timex Originals collection is inspired by vintage designs through-out the decades, brought up-to-date with a modern twist. Timex is proud to be the official timing sponsor of some of the greatest marathons in the world--New York, London and Berlin.

  • In 2011, Timex introduced the Timex Intelligence Quartz collection. Based on state of the art technology that is an open-ended platform with the flexibility to incorporate new technologies, new functions and new ideas as they become available, Intelligence Quartz is a design and technology platform targeted primarily to the male consumer seeking a sophisticated yet technology driven timepiece.

Purchased this as a "utility watch" to use in situations where I do'nt want to risk bashing my more expensive watches, and it has exceeded expectations. Higlights are:

The strap design at first glance it looks like a basic canvas/velcro strap, but the clever design is that the strap has a second stretchy length attached to the centre; this second strap passes above the securing pins and under the watch body which results in far less strain being put on the pins by the strap.

The "indiglo" backlight is very effective

This was bought as a 2nd watch. So did not really worry too much about style but did not want too spend much. I have a "day job" watch but if I'm doing something a bit messier like gardening or DIY then I am a bit wary of damaging it. Also, my other watch was luminous but this has worn off during the years. So having a watch that was luminous or with a back light was a second requirement.

Re the latter, there is a nice back light. Press and hold the crown to operate. Not too bright and so will not create nuisance glow if used in a dark room. Also, the hands are luminous. Have yet to test out how well that works (i.e. does the watch absorb enough energy during the day to keep the hands lit at night. That way it also has a 3rd purpose as a bed stand clock.

My only niggle is that the strap is too short to allow me to put the watch over my hand without unthreading the strap from the buckle and then threading the strap back through the buckle. But I guess make it longer and you have more strap to vecro around your wrist. My day job watch has a metal clasp.

For the price then I can't see you can go wrong with this.

I needed a good strong and reliable watch for use during my occupation as a Landscaper which frequently involves heavy work with chainsaws and tools. A steel bracelet was out of the question due to risk of injury and water resistance was a must. I often go through several watches in a season as they really do need to be tough and rugged. The Timex expedition has so far fitted the bill perfectly. It appears to be pretty tough and rugged and has a raised bevel around the dial which offers protection to the watch face reducing the risk of scratching. The dial is large and clear and the date display is good especially when writing invoices as one does not have to ask the date all the time. The strap is very comfortable indeed and is secured by a large band of tough velcro. so no more fiddly buckles or breaking clasps. The indiglo back light is also excellent for use in low light levels. All in all a great watch for those who work or enjoy the outdoor life. A good strong watch at a great low Amazon price!

Its a nice , cheap, decent looking watch. The hands do glow slightly in the dark but the illumiglow makes it easy to see the time in the dark. Straightforward to adjust the time and the date, lost a star simply because the strap was too small for my wrist. I don't like velcro straps anyway so no big deal to bin the original strap and replace with my normal type of nato/zulu strap

I initially liked this watch very much until it started losing time after a couple of weeks. The second hand seemed to stop on the number 5 for about 3 seconds on each cycle and then resume. Returned to Amazon for a refund.

Simple yet pleasing design. Strong velcro strap ensures that it will not be flimsy in any way. Strap is 2 tiers which means it is secured by the pins on the edges but also goes underneath the watch. Overall quality is very good and anybody who has one will know this.

after the first watch delivered was faulty,but undeterred i sent it back which was dealt with quickly by amazons returns policy
the watch is lightweight simple to use quite stylish,but will see if the strap will stand the test of time,but then again to buy a cheap Velcro strap to replace this one encase it breaks is not really an issue
