The Timex Story

Timex Group B.V. is one of the best-known American watch companies. Timex's U.S. headquarters are located in Middlebury Connecticut and it has substantial operations in China, the Philippines and India and full scale sales companies in Canada, the UK, France and Mexico.

The company began in 1854 as Waterbury Clock in Connecticut's Naugatuck Valley, known during the nineteenth century as the "Switzerland of America." Sister company Waterbury Watch manufactured the first inexpensive mechanical pocket watch in 1880. During World War I, Waterbury began making wristwatches, which had only just become popular, and in 1933 it made history by creating the first Mickey Mouse clock under license from Walt Disney, with Mickey's hands pointing the time.

During World War II, Waterbury renamed itself U.S. Time Company. In 1950 the company introduced a wristwatch called the Timex. Over the next three decades, Timex was sold through a series of advertisements which emphasized its durability by putting the watch through "torture tests," such as falling over the Grand Coulee Dam or being strapped to the propeller of an outboard motor, with the slogan "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking." With the help of former Olympic broadcaster, spokesman John Cameron Swayze, sales took off. The company later became Timex Corporation, then Timex Group and, to date, has sold over one billion watches.

The company has remained very competitive and the Timex brand continues its dominance through present day. Its primary market remains the United States and Canada, although the Timex brand is sold worldwide due to its ability to capitalize on its strong brand image and reputation for quality.

One of the most successful and important features available on many Timex watches is the Indiglo backlight system. Indiglo is a brand name of Indiglo Corporation, solely owned by Timex for licensing purposes. Timex electroluminescent lamps, branded Indiglo, were introduced in 1992 in the Ironman watch line. They were an immediate success. The Indiglo lamp uniformly lights the surface of the Timex’s watch dials in a manner that makes the dial read very easily in many different light settings. In some newer watches the Indiglo backlight only lights up the numbers, rather than the entire LCD display, which is achieved by means of a specialized film that inverts the LCD transmissivity.

Today, Timex Group products are manufactured in the Far East and in Switzerland often based on technology that continues to be developed in the United States and in Germany. With a large and varied line of watches, Timex has the style for everyone. From the locker room to the board room, there is a great Timex style time-piece for you.


Customer Reviews

A nice looking, well working alarm clock for my bedside.
Gail L. Gans
This is a very lightweight, flimsy clock, and ended up falling off my nightstand and breaking soon after I got it.
Jeannine Owens
It is a mystery how such a small clock can make such a loud ticking noise.
Jake

I bought this clock because when the morning sun comes in my window, it makes it impossible to read the time on my LED clock so I needed a clock with ordinary numerals to see the time in the morning. This clock looks great on my bedside table and does the job I needed it to do. I only wish it were a little bigger and heavier and I could see where someone trying to read the time in the dark may have a problem fumbling to press the button on top of the clock to turn on the face light. Five stars for my purposes, three stars for most other users needs makes it a four star clock.

The universal standard for a clock is reliability. The single AA battery is easily dislodged, stopping the clock. Although I like the fact that it's analog with a retro style, it is poorly engineered and shoddily manufactured. Additionally, it took over six weeks for delivery.

While I chose this clock for it's look, I still wanted a good clock to use as an alarm clock. The clock is very flimsy, and is easy to knock over. Also the alarm would not wake anyone up.

Hi everybody,
Though I like the looks of this alarm clock (still do), it hasn't worked reliably from the start. I kept putting in new (brand name) batteries, but that doesn't help. The clock keeps stopping, e.g., when the clock gets moved slightly (picked up to operate the light, for example). Obviously, I end up not using it because I don't feel like I can rely on it - kind of the opposite what you need in an alarm clock! I'd like to return it, but I won't because of the hassle... so, at least I want to warn potential buyers that this was NOT a good purchase! In fact, a waste of money. I strongly recommend *not* to buy this alarm clock.

Extremely poor quality. The alarm function doesn't work!!! I know it's made in China, but this is so cheaply put together it couldn't get any worse. The worst ever. Just in case I didn't make myself clear....this clock is the worst clock I've ever owned.

I was so pleased by the appearance of the clock when it first arrived. But within the first 24 hours, the sweep second-hand had broken off, and within 48 hours it no longer worked at all. I tried playing around with the battery placement after reading others reviews, but I got nothing. It LOOKS great, but it is very shoddily made. I'd return it but I threw out the packaging. I would not purchase it again.

ALMOST didn't get it due to one review about it being 'too small' (its not) and one
saying it gets knocked over easily (it doesn't) and one saying it made too much 'noise'--say what? I have it by my ear and don't hear it and I have great hearing. So to each his own...but I got this clock for the bedside table and an extra alarm. The alarm is great...starts slowly and more quietly and builds which is great. And this clock doesn't topple over...stands extremely well-just as well as my other clocks and it looks sooooo rich and is a perfect size..going to order another one for my bathroom as it looks nice in there too! You'll be glad you got this one (re: the backlight--or side light--not too bright but I dont use that feature often anyhow) Hope this helps!

Small size takes up little space. The night light is not a back light, but a small light on the side of the face of the clock. Its escalating alarm volume works well. Good deco face.
