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.

I wanted this to be a great watch so badly! I actually bought the black version with the rubber band and it came with a dead battery! Timex can only replace the battery due to the sensitivity with the electronic compass!!!! Keep this in mind when purchasing. Anyway I returned that one and got this one and upon opening it the crown fell out of the case! I put it back in and screwed it in. Then after about a week it fell out again but this time while I didn't notice it, so it was lost. Returned it for a refund. Loved the watch but build quality was sub par. Also the compass activation was too easy to accidentally activate. It beeps when this happens and also when it deactivates. This was always happening when putting my hand in and out of coat pockets! They should have made it harder to activate since this obviously uses a lot of battery power.

Style is easily four stars but quality is two stars, thus the three star rating.

I have had it for about 18 months and used it as my back up watch or when I'm in the mountains and do not want to wear my more expensive watch that my wife gave me as a present. This last weekend while working in the yard and running a chainsaw, the crown fell out. Hours later I noticed it was missing and that the time was stopped. I've spent some time online trying to find a replacement crown but haven't been able to and now I hope I can at least pay a watch shop to get it working again. But the point of a Timex is that it doesn't go to the shop. That is what the more expensive watches are for. And I suspect that a replacement crown will most likely fall out again in the future.

Update 9/9/2015 - I sent the watch into Timex and they returned it saying it couldn't be repaired. They also included a brand new watch of similar model as a replacement. Wow! That is great service however I'm picky about watches and don't really like the replacement watch as much as the original. Looking at the two, I determined that they had the exact same crown so I Googled information on replacing the crown and was able to swap the crown from the replacement into my original in about 20 minutes time. The hardest part was getting the back of the watch back in place. Why didn't Timex simply do this for me? Odd. So I used my watch for a couple of months now and yesterday the watch band screw/post fell out and are lost. Guess what? I have to send the watch back in to get it replaced. I feel like I'm on a merry-go-round.

I do like this watch. Looks good! The compass is a bit hard to use (perhaps it is me and not the watch). I gave it four stars because of the band. The band does look good; however, the holes to adjust the band are too far apart and this results in either a too loose band or a too tight band. Not sure how I could change this. The holes are oblong versus round, so making another hole would be more challenging. Oh well, the watch is still nice, though I feel the price is a bit steep.

It's a bit big for my small wrist but it works well, is easy to use and to set, with very detailed directions. I agree with other comments that sometimes the hands are hard to see against the face of the watch but this is a minor issue to me. More interestingly, after a week the compass suddenly would no longer point to north. I re-calibrated it and it returned to normal. I must have brought it close to a source of magnetism, but just to be safe I'm going to get the additional 4 year warranty for $5. Today the watch helped me drive, when at certain turns I wasn't sure which way to go I just hit the compass button and right away I knew which turn to take. Overall I'm very happy with the watch and with Timex watches in general.

Got this for my husband and he likes it well enough - for the first few weeks he used the compass feature all the time. The feature is neat - the compass needle swirls around until it arrives at North. It seems to wear well and isn't overly large, bulky of heavy which for my husband was a perk. This was a replacement after 5 years constant wear of the Timex quick-set alarm watch and the quick-set alarm was such a nifty feature that we miss it a bit (particularly when we travel and their are trains to catch) on this watch.

Great little watch. Only grip is the strap is too 'spongie' and appears to stretch when worn. Even when tightened when first put on, by the end of the day, it stretches enough that I could rebuckle it to the next hole.

I'd give this 4 stars and maybe 4.5 if the compass really worked.
It keeps perfect time, it's nice looking and wears nicely.
The problem I have is that I didn't read the reviews like so many of us did not do before purchase.
The compass function is a joke.
I don't care how close you follow the directions on how to set it the needle always points to either N or S.
If you try to go west the needle shows east and vice versa.
Not sure what Timex means by inteliquartz but it can't have to do with the function of the compass.
There are other more qualified and better watches with the compass out there to choose from.
So unless Timex fixes this functionality problem I'd purchase another brand.
