    Not bad, groovy vintage Timex for $1

    I am a flea market junkie. Just started with this vintage watch bug, very addictive.

    Among today's finds, a very groovy gold tone Timex for one dollar. I didn't think it worked but took it home, wound it and it's ticking away.

    I hit it with a little Simichrome and put a black leather band on it.

    Flea markets are great places to find watches. I found my work watch at one for $3.

    To coin a phrase: "I'd buy that for a dollar!"

    Super cool watch.

    Heck, I could either buy a Twix for a dollar or buy a Timex. I'd much rather have a Timex. Nice find.

    I just want to say that Mercyful Fate is my favorite band of all time. Which makes King Diamond second favorite. Fancy seeing that profile pic on a watch forum.

    Don't go breaking that oath now.

    I've always liked MF, but I liked King better from the Them & The Eye period
