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.

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.
The clock is fairly light, I am including a photo of the clock with battery on a postal scale, and it weights 5.1 oz. The clock runs on one AA battery. Note that the battery is not included with the product. Despite the light weight it did not feel flimsy to me.
I read in reviews for this clock that the battery sometimes does not staying in the clock so I decided to put in the battery myself to make it easier for my elderly mother. At first I had trouble putting in the battery all the way into a deep battery chamber. It was positioned at an angle. The clock began running even when I did not insert the battery correctly, but I can see how it could have easily come out if I were to leave in that angled position.
But then I noticed directions on the cover than the battery should be put in with the positive polarity first, and as soon as I inserted it that way the battery went in easily and was seated firmly in the deep chamber. I am attaching a photo which shows the direction on the cover next to the properly inserted battery. When I inserted the battery deeply in the chamber it was very secure. The clock has a ribbon that goes under the battery for easy removal.
Overall, both my mother and I are very pleased. Good looking, well behaved clock and at a very reasonable price. I recommend it.
Ali Julia review
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!

I love this little clock! It's on my bedside table, and easy to read if I roll over and wonder what time it is. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Monrovia
Keeps time well and is small enough to be on bedside table without taking up too much space. The only negative is the tick tick sound it makes.Published 1 month ago by Kathy
