Product Description

Complete your watch collection with beautiful pieces.

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.

    Fun watch, not easy to use special features.
    Comes with a surprisingly weak stainless steel band that is quite large.
    I had to remove two links to get a good fit (I have fairly large wrists).
    Links are harder to remove than it would appear - the first 5 links are removable via a very thin cotter pin.
    You can find video's on-line that show you how to remove the links, but it tricky.
    Once you get the pin out 1/8th of an inch, it easily pulls out with finger tips. I had to use jeweler's pliers with fine tips to extract the pin. You are supposed to drive it out from one side (arrows show where) using a very thin and very strong (hardened steel) pin or very tiny eyeglass screw driver. Be carefull about which direction the pin comes out and make sure it goes back in the reverse way. (you can leave the pin barely sicking out to test out the watch band, before tapping it all the way back in.)
    Keeps time fine. Dial is easy to read. Setting the date and time is easy enough, the watch allows you to first just move the hour hand. Read the directions on how to activate the minute hand and the rather silly three built in timers. Tach feature, of course, is s cruel joke.
    The watch is MASSIVE - very thick and quite heavy.
    The backlighting does work, but it was rather dim compared to other Indiglo watches I own (5 to date).
    Fun to wear, but it might annoy your bed partner, should you hit them in the head with your arm!
    Also, it will snag and pull hair.
    The back plate will pry open with a hardened knife.
    The band has a very secure snap over latch.
    The watch band links, however, are very weak and easily bent, particularly while trying to remove the links.

    This is a great watch. The tachymeter is just about useless. A slide rule bezel would have been better, but that would have been a more expensive option. For the price, it has been a very good watch.

    Nice watch, with lots of great features. I love the way it works and it has already taken quite a beating, with no negative consequences. The second hand is a bit too thin for easy reading (I am no longer a sharp eyed youth!), but given the very low price, this watch deserves the full five stars.

    It is a fair price for what it is. Keep an eye on this too as the MSRP was ~$72.00 at Timex-dot-com.
    Not worth more than the price sold here. Made in Philippines with a Chinese movement. Japanese, Swiss or even Timex USA would have been preferred. If it holds up, it should be a decent purchase. However one can get a Seiko kinetic watch with Japanese movements for not much more than this wrist toy. It's a guy gadget that tells time. Water resistance level seems to be above standard if it proves to be so.
    Little heavy, but that's a current trend.
    Setting all Chrono's to 0 was not easy. Really not easy. Once set, it seems to behave.
    Indiglo light is worthless. It does not illuminate to any useful level to be seen.
    Unit seems to have come in from Mexican market. Is this a genuine Timex?
    Watch model information on the box intentionally masked with stickers. Not sure of reasoning. Points me toward a gray-market gut feeling. This could be why Amazon is warranting the unit rather than Timex, which for $5.00 can be warranted for up to 5 years which seems to be worth the money.

    Update.
    Band fell completely off of watch. Was able to catch it before it hit the ground. Was really looking forward to this item. After multiple attempts to put the pin back in to attach the band, I gave up. I should not have to take this to a jeweler within days of purchase for a simple repair. Will be asking for a refund.
    Will attempt one more repair. If it does not work out.. adios.

    5.15.2016: adios it is. Bummer.

    Timex has always delivered for me in the past, and this watch is no exception. It looks exactly as it appears on your screen - if anything, even better! Very masculine and sturdy. The bracelet had to be adjusted, and as it seemed pretty complicated after reading the instructions, I took it to a jeweler, who removed several pins within minutes while I waited. I'm sure it's a simple process for those of you out there who like to tackle these problems, but for me it was a lot easier just to have a professional address this issue. It's strictly a personal choice concerning whether this timepiece should be worn for casual everyday use or dressier formal settings, but I think it would work well in either. I liked this watch so much, I ordered another as backup if and when this particular model is discontinued. If you like the look of this watch, you will definitely not be disappointed when you put it on your wrist. Oh, yeah, one more thing. Because of the chronographs and dials and whatnot, it may take more than a quick glance to determine what the time is, but who cares? It looks cool.

    While the watch is ok, not heavy, looks nice... There is no Indigloo light...

    The watch has been working well for the week or so I've used it... I purchased the Watch Band adjustment tool kit for 6 dollars here on Amazon and that did the trick.

    I like the indigloo feature of Timex watches, but this one does not have it even though it says it on the face of the watch...

    I'll keep the watch... it looks good.
