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.
Brace yourself for the best of both worlds with the Timex Men's T5C551 Ironman Combo Twincept Resin Strap Watch. This athletic, durable timepiece offers a sporty, black resin band that joins to a stainless steel case. Analog watch hands sit above a white digital-quartz display that occupies the full watch face. Easy-to-navigate push pieces around the case are clearly labeled along the stainless steel bezel. Luminescent skeleton hands and Indiglo night-light technology add to this timepiece's appeal. This watch is water resistant to 330 feet (200 meters).
after exactly 1 year the analogue part, i.e. moving hands just stopped. That's it.Published 1 month ago by V.
As advertised. Functional, ease of use, and accurate. The simpleness of the design, and the durability of the band... Read morePublished 12 months ago by BRad van Haitsma
I have been a dedicated Timex user for years now but this purchase has changed my mind. You see this watch was received defective in that the INSIDE front glass is fogged up white... Read morePublished 12 months ago by HBtrini
Not bulky - good size for me. Like the various displays. Occasionally have the "issue" that numbers are covered up by the hands - I'm not finding that a problem or hassle. Read morePublished 12 months ago by David C. Gneiser
To me, this is essentially two separate watches elegantly combined into one, analogue + digital, as the analog and digital functions are independent from each other. Read morePublished 12 months ago by F. Jen
Looked like a great deal and had a lot of functionality. Unfortunately, when it arrived, everything EXCEPT the analog portion worked. Not much fun without moving hands....Published 13 months ago by Cycleraf
