    Re: Is there truly no love for Timex?

    I would buy more Timex watches but they are not big enough for me. I like my watches between 36mm and 46mm. Since I am also on a square watch kick at the moment I don't really want any Timex watches. i love their autos though.

    Re: Is there truly no love for Timex?

    Timex has always made a nice watch in my opinion. My grandfathers vintage auto is what spurred my interest into collecting! If it wasnt for that, I probably wouldnt have so many damn watches! That being said, i own 5. One vintage auto, two new autos, and two "T" seies three hand models.

    This one looks "too crowded" for my taste but nonetheless, it's a mean looking watch!

    I've never own a Timex before but after I saw the pictures here, I might gonna get one myself!!

    I'd consider my brief stint with Timex to be the most serious lapse in judgement I've ever made.

    I am now considering them due to haveing to watch my budget more. I have recntly seen some very good values at Target and Walmart. IT seems that Timex has certain models sold only at certain stores.

    I still own an Ironman... had it since I was about 12, can't believe it still works. All it's taken is battery changes.

    Made in China, and very well made, especially since Timex has good QC.
    Accuracy, I think, is around -20s to +40s a day.

    I have 76 watches, some fairly expensive, but my favorite is a Timex expedition chrono alarm


    The case is ion coated, and very thick, so it is cool black and very durable. $45 on sale at Wal Mart, but this thing has the fit and finish of a $600 dollar watch.

    I have 7 Timex watches, and I'm looking for a certain model vintage 21j right now. I have had a lot of problems with the old unjewelled movements, but I think the 21j versions are indestructible, and they make some of the nicest quartz mov'ts around.

    I think there's a lot here
