    Early 60’s Original Timex Marlin Servicing

    Can the early 60’s Original Timex Marlins be services to keep them running great? Or should you just cut your losses and move on?

    Two points:
    - Any watch that old will need to have been serviced several times by now, therefore 'cutting your losses and moving on' will quickly result in a trail of dead watches.
    - A Timex of that vintage will be fully serviceable in theory, however depending on where you live there might be some difficulty finding a watchmaker who is willing to take on the job.

    Such is the challenge of Timex ownership.
