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.

Both before and after I initially wrote my review, I searched all over the place online and in brick stores for a good digital watch for children. By good, I of course mean durable, but also one with a stopwatch, countdown timer, alarms, etc. My kids don't want just a plain watch without any functionality. They are kids! They like to time things, use it for sports at school, set alarms, etc. They enjoy the glowing effect and durable construction. Many others point out that the watch has some issues with the band or the size or... But good luck finding other brands of kids watches that offer all that this watch does, or a replacement straps that works well and fits good. If you find something better (all you giving low ratings), by all means please come back here and comment with some details of what's better! I know Amazon limits what detail you can share, but any hint would be nice. Another brand, another website, etc.
Update in April: This watch has been great. As I said above, it withstood bath time. However, one dip in the pool and it was shot. That doesn't constitute water resistant to me. Sure they have a one year warranty, but you have to pay a substantial fraction of the cost of the watch for processing. Plus the language of their return policy is a major deterrent: Timex will not provide any warranty service if your watch shows evidence that it has been tampered with, misused, abused, or altered; for example: moisture damage sufficient to affect the proper function of the watch; damage to the case; or visible cracking of the crystal. Well, yes, the watch was damaged by water moisture sufficient to affect the proper functioning. That's exactly the problem.
First time a Timex has let me down. It's fine for the winter, but we'll be looking for another brand with spring/summer here and every day spent in the water.
