    TIMEX: Goodwill find. Anyone know much about these?

    Hello folks,

    I picked up this TIMEX at a Goodwill some time ago and it just sat in a drawer for a bit. The other day I put it on this home made NATO strap and it made it pop. Now my curiosity is renewed but I haven't come up with much online. Does anyone know anything about this watch? Era it was made in? Model name? Any info would be appreciated!!

    There will be a 2 digit code on the back. That number corresponds to a Timex date code chart. I would guess yours is late 80's early 90's. Model name....Mercury or Marlin which is still up for debate if they still used those names that late in production.

    Marlin from the 1980s, but could be had as late as 1996 (I had one from 1995).

    Will be powered by the workhorse M24 movement.
