Product Detail

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!

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 "Good" to "Pristine" condition

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
