Timex clues

by Sevesteen

 

While the basic Timex pinlevers aren't all that interesting to me, (I've got a couple) many of the other watches are very interesting--The jump-seconds electromechanical, hybrid balance-wheel quartz, the automatic that manages to keep a pinlever movement wound, one of the earliest uses of Seiko movemnets in the US, etc, and all done with budget in mind.

The people of this forum is what draws me, as much or more than the watches--Too many other watch forums have too high an entry fee--"Get a beater like a new Tissot or a Hamilton", both watches worth several times more than I've paid for my most expensive watch. I'm interested in horology in general, and watches I can wear. I'm not interested in watches as jewelery beyond a very basic level, and not particularly in "high horology", where the polish of unseen parts is as important as performance.
