  • Bill, I think the big difference, is the date of manufacture and the movement>>>>>

      It was my understanding the "Camper" came along later than '94 and was a quartz model. This one is a mechanical movement, #24, and was produced as a military-style, which was modeled after the TIMEX military prototypes produced to be purchased by the US government. I am linking to a re-post by Dorsey, which is interesting, and shows that there is no proof the US government ever purchased any of these watches.

      However the description matches my watch....solid one piece plastic case and a mechanical #24 wind up movement. The movement comes out through the crystal. To be honest, these are not designed to be "fixed or repaired", but to be used as throw-aways. The only difference between mine and the miilitary prototypes, is the military contract markings on the case back. Mine does have the production code "B7" which is July 1994.

      I stand to be corrected, but I didn't think these were called "Camper" in the '94 catalog.

      Here is the link to Dorsey's "repost" here on the Timex forum:

      TIMEX MILITARY INFO REPOST

      If you have any additional information, please update us, Bill. Thanks for looking and asking.

      Cheers, happy.gif
