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.

But other than it being obscenely loud- it seems to be a pretty good watch.
Best of all, compare this watch to the J.Crew Timex® Military Watch which is listed for $150...the weekender is almost identical!! And over $100 less.
Great watch...classic American styling.
-Price. As a first-time watch buyer, I didn't want to spend much money and at $30, this one was a steal.
-Size. One of my pet peeves with men's watches is their size, however this watch is small, but not so much that it looks too feminine. About 35mm diam.
-Indiglo. A Timex classic, with the press of a button, you can have a glowing dial tell you the time in a dimly lit room.
-Woven Strap. Comfortable yet feels sturdy and durable.
-TIME! Almost forgot, but the day I got it I set it to US Atomic Time (online) and 6 weeks later, I'm only 10 seconds behind Atomic Time. Pretty good for $30 Watch.
-Loud. I know that everybody has said it about this watch already, but this is a noticeably loud watch. TICK-TOCK!
-WR30m I realize this is a cheap watch, but it would be nice if it were more water resistant, say 100m so that you could swim while wearing it like the design suggests to the wearer.
-Shiny Case. It's not really a CON, but the picture in the ad suggests a "brushed aluminum" finish. Not the case (no pun intended). This is a shiny, mirror-like finish so if that doesn't float your boat, don't get it.
Overall, this watch has been great and I highly recommend it to anyone trying to get into watch-wearing or just needs a cheap, classic looking daily watch.
The only downsides are the lack of a date indicator, glass susceptible to scratches and also the water resistance is only basic - 30m splash proof only.
(But in reality what do you expect for this amazingly low price).
I also bought a Seiko SNK809 automatic for approx $60. The Seiko had better water resistance, date indicator and automatic function.
I would recommend buy the Seiko, and buy a replacement watch strap to make this Seiko look half similar to the Timex.
However, you can't beat that amazing looking "indiglo" light.

It tells time, but it is possibly the loudest watch I've ever owned. It's louder than the clocks in my house which is just ridiculous. I can hear it in another room.Published 2 days ago by K. Clancey
Looks great, terrific, comfortable strap. Does NOT maintain accurate time; something you'd like a time piece to do!. Have changed battery and still does not maintain time. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Leather1905

REALLY small!!! The photo of the watch on the arm makes it seem like it is a fairly normal size but this looked like a child's watch. I ran past my return time and gave it away.Published 3 months ago by Philip Theobald

I gave this as a gift to my son. He is very picky. But the fact that I see him wearing it, it tells me something that he loved it. Good for casual wear.Published 5 months ago by Nan
