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 or not and further below I listed some model names for model numbers:
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 number below the "6" or above the "12" (model number) starts with anything other than a "2" it is NOT a Marlin.
Below is a general breakdown of Men's model names per model number (Model number can be found below the "6" or above the "12" (in small print)
(1XXX = Mercury/Sprite) (2XXX = Marlin) (25XX = Sportster) (3XXX = Fun Timer) (4XXX = Viscount) (5XXX = Super Thin) (6XXX = 17 Jewel) (9XXX = Electric)

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, then this may be right for you
Please note that all pictures are taken on the macro setting. This makes even the slightest imperfections, shadows during photography, and specks of dust appear much more prominent even though they are often not visible without magnification
A careful shopper who takes the time to study the photos, reads the entire description, and asks pertinent questions is our best customer

Vintage Watch Outlet is not an authorized dealer of any of the watch brands we carry. All brand names and trademarks are the property of their respective owners and are used for identification purposes only. This allows us to sell luxury items at discounted prices. Vintage Watch Outlet is not affiliated with any website that sells Fake or Replica items. All of our wristwatches are genuine and authentic.

If we have made no gross errors, it is a final sale. This is merely due to the items being antiques, vintage, or pre-owned.
