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 don't really mind the noise, but its loud enough to piss off my co-workers. Like a person who constantly clicks their pens or taps their feet. So, while I love how it looks. I'm going to be replacing it asap. I really wanted the Hamilton Khaki Field Automatic , but this was so much cheaper. The Timex Weekender is a great value for a thirty dollar watch. Its just so damn loud. Definitely a conversation starter.
Price - On the cheaper end of the scale, @ ~ $30 , this was the main selling point.
Easy to Read - While I'm sure all of the Chrono features, and other fancy things look cool. It just adds to much to the face, I have a watch simply for telling time. nothing else.
Light weight- Another nice thing is that it is light. So much so that I forget that it is there.
Ticks: At first I didn't notice it but it ticks, which can be annoying.
Thick: The watch face is a little thicker than I would like, but for the price I can handle it.
Strap: The leather strap that came with it is leather, but it is very thin. I have already order a new NATO leather strap that should be thicker.
Also something has to be mentioned about the sound. I don't know what watches other people are buying within this price range that is so much quieter, but I found the sound of the tick much softer and easier to deal with than other comments forced me to expect. True, there is a sound with the watch that can be heard from a foot or 2 away when no other sound in the room is going on, but really what do you expect for a cheap watch.
I give this a 5 based on the quality I get for the price range it is in. I am assuming that people naturally expect a watch made with more expensive parts (and thus a more expensive price) to work better. This is not a better watch than many +$100 you may see elsewhere, it is simply the best watch in it's class.
Secondly, the negative hype about the band is true -- this is quite a flimsy band. So flimsy, in fact, that it cheapens the appearance of the watch. However, the watch case itself is worth the price. It's a classic-looking case with that subtle, manly character. Just prepare yourself for a little disappointment with the watchband. Once it wears out (which they all do), buy a better band.
Overall, great looking watch for a fair price. I'd buy again.
