Has anyone looked at the Timex offering in a while? I think some of their watches look fantastic and they are priced to compete. I don't have any hands on experience so can't speak to the build quality, but ... what a change from years past.

I like this one.

Yeah, I sat up and started to pay attention a little while ago. I haven't given them any money yet but it could definitely happen.

I have a 'few' early electrics/electronics and a few early quartz ones (half dozen on bottom row)......

Latest resurrection, this rather nice true diver (100metres, screw back and screw down crown) from 1987....

And this quirky electronic pseudo diver is rather special......

It's nice to see a legitimate resurgence unlike other non-watch brands of old say like Singer...not the Porsche guys but the sewing machine company. Hopefully Timex are in it for the long haul as they have a good shot of filling that value void that has been opened up since Seiko has embarked on a slightly different path.
