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.
- 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.
Timex is an iconic American heritage watch brand renowned for its timeless designs. Founded in 1854, Timex has established a tradition of creating high-quality, innovative watches to suit the needs of every customer. Timex watches have been a part of consumers’ lives for over 160 years and combine high-end Italian designs with cutting edge German engineering to offer customers quality products. With a large and varied line of watches, Timex has a style for everyone.See all Product Description

I can't believe it now costs £100 - even allowing for inflation.
I noticed that it's selling for $49.99 on amazon.com
which is about £27 and nearer to what
I paid for mine 10 years or so ago.
The watch itself is pretty good. Mine is still going strong. I'v had to replace the strap a few times and recently put a steel bracelet on it from another old Timex that had stopped working. The steel bracelet fits perfectly. The watch keeps good time. The alarm is a bit too low - barely audible*. The light is okay. The compass works perfectly. You have to recalibrate it occasionally but it's just a matter of pressing the right buttons and laying the watch on a flat surface and then following the on-dial instructions to rotate it slowly twice
(two full turns) and then press the mode button to complete the calibration procedure and the compass is good to go. It's a nice durable watch and keeps good time but at £100?! You gotta be kiddin'! Right?
I think I'll order another one from amazon.com - when the time comes......
P.S. If you do buy the watch, you will probably want to clean it at some stage.
You may want to take the rotating bezel off. Be careful! Underneath the bezel
there are two little spring loaded click screws which will pop out
when you remove the rotating bezel. The click screws make the clicking
noise when you rotate the bezel in normal wear. If you remove the bezel to clean
the watch, make sure you do not lose the click screws. They are tiny
and almost impossible to locate if they fly out when the bezel
is removed.Read more ›
The indiglo light was very bright, I was always able to read the face even bleary eyed in the middle of the night. The handy night light element is good.
The digital compass was reasonably accurate, but I don't think I would like to navigate in low visibility and use that as my only method of navigation, but it was fine for basic low accuracy navigation.
I wouldn't pay £100 for it as it is quite plasticy, but if if you could pick it up for around £35 it would a good deal.
I have a good collection of watches, and am always looking out for something a bit different, so when I saw this, I thought that I would send for it.
When it arrived though, it was a BIG disappointment.
The watch seems to be made of plastic, it is so light and flimsy. the time is hard to read in certain lights, and the back light is useless !
It is the kind of watch that I would give to one of my children, and I would certainly not wear it when going out for the evening.
The packaging is also very cheap. ( I have seen thicker cereal boxes). There is not a watch box as such, so there is nothing to put the watch back in when not being used. the only thing that it comes in is a VERY thin cardboard box.
I cannot see why this watch is being sold for the price that it is, and the only reason that I am not sending it back is that I would have to pay another lot of postage.
I have seen BUDGET watches that are being sold for a lot less than this, and for this reason, I would NEVER buy another Timex watch again.
I will just say that I have made lots of purchases from Amazon in the past, and this is the only bad buy that I have made.
If I had to sum up this watch in two words, it would be BIG DISSAPOINTMENT !!!!!!
I am giving it two stars for the strap, and none for the watch.
The main concern is the cheap and flimsy construction. The casing of the watch is made from plastic, the rotating bezel also has a cheap plastic feel, and is painted silver likely to rub off with usage. The light is switched on via a pad which is located beneath the time display, this button was a very weak feel to it, and prone to dirt ingress. However the lights brightness is just right for night time viewing. The viewing angle of display is also an issue. The straps are rather cheap but functional, the loops holding the straps around are very poorly constructed and held together with a nylon stitch, I can see this failing very quickly.
The back casing is stainless steel possibly 316 grade, secured with 4 screws.
The overall functionality of watch is good, but longevity seems doubtful. Thickness of watch is approx. 8mm. I would recommend this watch for occasional use.
