A Timex Automatic ( pic. - just another restoration... )

by Knut


I thought that while we are waiting for the new Timex Automatics to arrive on our repective shores, I'd post a pic of this Timex Automatic from 1983. It came in a small lot the other day along with some other Timex's, and I thought it looked nice. I happened to have a nearly NOS bracelet which I think is the kind they came with when new. I just polished the case and crystal along with a "movement-bath" ( not that it looked like it needed a clean, but just to be on the safe side... ). Runs super and looks... well... very GOLD! ( something for you technoguy? Just kidding! ).

I have taken an interest in these late Automatics - just in the transition from mech. to regular quartz watches for Timex. To me they represent the last attempt to meet the "quartz-invation" from the East. And now they are meeting the competition with a new Automatic. Life is good!
