Ok ok, I finally had to get a Timex Electric. After weeks of searching on and off line, I finally found this Timex Electric WITH the original box, manual and warranty papers......and for some reason (probably since the auction ended on a Wed morning) I won the auction for the princely sum of $10. It is running and keeping time like a champ. The condition, as you can see in the pictures, is really, really nice. The band that came with it (it said made in China so I dont think it is original) was ugly and too big for me. It has 3/4 lugs so I had a 20mm band that fit fine and seems to go well on it. It does not have the usual Timex style and date at the bottom of the dial, so I will take guesses as to the year. I dont usually buy Timex (they just are not worth much usually) but the Electrics go for a bit more along with the Dynabeats and this one was so nice I decided to try one. I had no idea I would get it so cheap and that it would run so well. I was planning on selling it after looking it over, but its here to stay.
