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.

Clean design face, simple strap, red second hand is cool, compass makes this watch different. I have never seen this watch in my local stores in Australia.
The packaging was good and the watch arrived in perfect condition in record time to my remote location.
Bang for buck this is a great watch.
Compass is way off, second hand does not align with the face minute idents which is a minor issue. It can be difficult to tell the time with the North arrow in the way. Timex and not Wenger or Seiko.
In summery, I reccomend this watch for something different to add to your collection. The compass hand just makes it look cool. The price is very good for a quality watch.
i was really looking forward to it arriving in the mail.
the main reason for my purchase was for the compass,
well unfortunately the mechanism was 180 degrees out and unable to be rectified by calibrating.
buttons were also temperamental, only activating the ingiglo when pulling the crown out.
might try my luck once more.... or stick to Tissot t-touch.
This is a handsome watch, not overly large and I liked the subtle, clean appeal of the dial. The case is not polished, but has a nice finish that won't cause glare.
I was leery of buying a watch with a silicone band, but this turned out to be super soft, smooth, and comfortable -- as supple as I can imagine any material feeling, natural or man-made.
However, a watch should tell you the date and time, not the other way around. Unfortunately, all of the Timex IQ watches (except the perpetual calendar model) require that you reset the date to the 1st in March, May, July, October and December (every month that doesn't follow one with 31 days). I've had mechanical watches from Timex that don't require that and cost under $30, so the marketing term "IQ" seems ironic.
Another shortcoming is that the T2N724 has three buttons, yet the top and bottom buttons do the same thing. One is redundant.
I've preferred Timex watches since I was a kid in the 70's, when they used to strap them on the bottoms of swamp boats and downhill skis just to prove they could take a licking and keep on ticking. Good, solid watches, with attractive designs, reasonable prices and a brand you could feel good about. This watch couldn't even make it out of the factory. I'm afraid Timex has lost their art and it needs to re-up quality control and technical design to stay relevant. Jumping ship to the newer, flashier "TX" brand (which has the same guts, different trim, and a higher price) isn't the answer.
Note: The band is 22mm, not 20mm as listed.
