Remember your first Timex watch?

For many of us, it was the first watch we owned!

Back in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, Timex, became an iconic American product.

As they used to say: “It takes a licking and keeps on ticking”

Those robust movements and hard cases are still ticking away today!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Recently there has been a lot of Timex's being sold as a Marlin Model that are not a Marlin

To avoid confusion I listed some easy ways to tell if a Timex is a Marlin Model

1. No Marlins are "automatic" or "self wind." If it says "Automatic" or "Self Wind" it is "not" a Marlin, it is a different Timex model called "Viscount"

2. All Marlins say "waterproof" or "water resistant." If it does not say "waterproof" or "water resistant" it is "not" a Marlin, it is most likely a "Mercury" or "Sprite" model

3. All Marlin Models start with "2"....if the first number below the "6" or above the "12" starts with anything other than a "2" it is not a Marlin.

Below is a general breakdown of popular model names and numbers (Model numbers can be found below the "6" or above the "12"

(1XXX = Mercury/Sprite) (2XXX = Marlin) (25XX = Sportster) (3XXX = Fun Timer) (4XXX = Viscount) (5XXX = Super Thin) (6XXX = 17 Jewel) (9XXX = Electric)


I am a watch collector as well as a buyer and seller of new, pre-owned, antique, and vintage watches

I only sell genuine, authentic, watches in "Very Good" to "Pristine" condition

Condition Guide:
  • Pristine - Items in "like new" condition. Shows no signs of wear. Worn very little, if at all.
  • Mint - Items that have minimal wear. Worn only a few times. In "almost new" condition.
  • Excellent - Items show signs of wear. Light surface scratches and possibly a few small dents or dings. Average condition considering the age of the item.
  • Very Good - Items that have been worn regularly and have noticeable wear. Scratches, dents, and dings are more visible.

This is a vintage used watch. It has lived a life before you, so you should not expect it to be new and flawless. If you want a flawless new watch, please do not buy this.  If you want a piece of history in the form of a nice vintage piece, or possibly a dated inscription on the case back, then this may be right for you. Because most vintage watches being offered are between 30-70 years old, small imperfections, scratches, and wear are to be expected
