Timex Marlin Roman Numeral Dial Vintage 1970's Manual Wind Mens Watch....35mm
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 and to the left of the "6" (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 and to the left of the "6" (in small print)
(1XXX = Mercury/Sprite) (2XXX = Marlin) (25XX = Sportster) (3XXX = Fun Timer) (4XXX = Viscount) (5XXX = Super Thin) (6XXX = 17 Jewel) (9XXX = Electric)
