Founded in 1854 as the Waterbury Clock Company, Timex has a rich and significant history in the world of watches. A pioneer of innovation and technology, they have produced everything from trench watches for soldiers in WWI to the best selling automatic of the ‘60s to the number one digital sports watch of the ‘80s. Their famous slogan “takes a licking and keeps on ticking” is also not just a motto for the brand, but a philosophy as well. Timex watches are always designed with everyday people and everyday tasks in mind, whether it’s going to work, taking the dog out for a walk, or taking your bike out for a long ride. Fun, functional, durable and affordable, Timex is a brand that will get you into watches, and always have a place in your collection.
In 2017 Timex released the Marlin 34mm Hand-Wound watch. A throwback to a timepiece from the ‘60s that was nearly identical to the original, it relaunched the brands interest in mechanical timepieces, being their first since 1982, as well sparked a series of vintage reissues. Since then, Timex has continued to release new affordable automatic and hand-wound watches, as well as stylish vintage reissues.
