Product Description

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.

The Timex SL Series™ is a signature combination of sophistication and sportiness. The addition of Intelligent Quartz™ technology takes the SL Series to a new level of functionality. The Timex SL Series™ Fly-Back Chronograph features a fly-back chronograph movement and second time zone.

    I went back and forth on which flyback to purchase, and ended up with this one which was the wrong call. I wanted to love it, and picked it for a particular style for an event. The watch itself is very flashy and good looking; more than I expected. It sat for a couple of days on my desk till I got used to it, and then I decided it would be ok afterall. Then it turned out that it just took way too much effort to read it. It does emulate some of the big name watches, but it doesn't pull it off in readability. I could never find the right combination of distance, angle, and light to read it without a lot of work, and I really tried. Most times, I don't have time for watch reading to be a lot of work. I need to glance at it and know the time.

    The silver hands are hard to make out, and the flyback subdial indicators are really skinny and almost impossible to read. The flyback was cool, and I really liked it in theory, but it was clear to me that I would never be able to actually use it unless i was in perfect conditions and not doing anything else because the indices and pointers were so small/skinny to read while doing ANYTHING else... which is typically when you use a chronometer- when you are timing the something else.

    I had been told that the whole face illuminated (it doesn't in this model). The shape of the area that does illuminate essentially cuts off the long part of the minute hand which means in the dark you can't tell the difference between the minute and hour hands without really looking hard at it between the hours of 12-3am and 6-9pm or any time the minute hand is in that part of the dial. I intended to have this be a watch I would use in the evening, and this essentially rendered it useless day or night.

    This is probably my 4th or 3rd Timex of this style (Flyback with leather strap). It is very handsome appearing, not to busy not to many gadgets on the face. IT IS MUCH MORE GOOD LOOKING IN PERSON. I am not sure how well the leather will last though. It feels OK but I can see a breakdown where you bend it back to slip the pin in the approate hole. I would and probably will purchase another. Highly recommended.

    I bought this as a gift for my husband. This chronograph watch was mentioned in an article in Popular Science magazine (2/12) as one of 2012's best gadgets. It has a nice sized face, is beautiful. and, he loves it!
