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.

Oh Amazon! I am _so_ disheartened to see that you no longer carry this watch, as disheartened I am to see that Timex and Motorola no longer manufacture it. This watch was no Edsel, and I'm sorry to see it end up in a technology tarpit.

A co-worker of mine just recently (last five years) lost his hearing and he now has a Cochlear implant. They haven't made a cell phone to work with the Cochlear implant yet and this watch has been a godsend in helping us communicate with each other! We work on-call and it's imperative that I be able to rapidly get in touch with him. This watch was perfect for that! And because it was a watch, it was small, portable and just about perfect for the task and he always knew when someone was contacting him.

Not only was it a pager under SkyTel service, it could receive e-mail from cell phones, dispatcher computers and via the SkyTel website and news alerts from the wire services over Yahoo.

With the purchase of a new watch, you received a year of SkyTel service. This included service nationwide, voice mail for those who wished it, caller id and a toll free number to send unlimited pages or to leave/retrieve voice mail. Renewal of the agreement was but $99 a year! Where can you get a deal better than that???

So here, after two years of brutal use, both our watches are sick and dying. We need new ones Amazon! Find us some! The rubber watch bands are deteriorating, the buttons are getting loose and the electrical contacts are getting worn. If we can't put the pager on our wrist, we can't use it and don't want it.

This is an AMAZING watch! I have had it since April of this year, and it works flawlessly. I mostly use the pager and the Yahoo Mobile internet messaging services - I get local weather, entertainment report and sports reports at night, top news stories. Batteries last about two months each. It turns out that the battery used by the watch is actually a hearing aid battery. Again, this is a wonderful watch!

A useful wrist pager and an OK watch. Had one for about 2 years - beat the heck out of it. Drowned it several times inadvertantly. I would still own one if the paging service wasn't so over-priced. The first year of Skytel was free - an offer that was the clincher that got me to try it in the first place. Multiple alarms, multiple time zones, and a lousy watch band.

Great value! Perfect for use at work..discreet alarm. Various useful attributes. Drawback: appearance not girly at all... but worth it. Want new one desperately!
