- - once again, a member of the Timexicans has come up trumps - BillD. very kindly sent me a 1965 catalogue - would you believe an automatic, water"proof" top of the range cost as much as 135/- UK in 1965, that's 6.75 in to-days money = $10.87c. happy.gif That's a gold plated case, rolled gold expander bracelet

But this would be 100.58 to spend using the inflation calculator or $162.06c if the same item was purchased to-day - kind of puts thin gs into a perspective, Timex are actually cheaper now in real terms than then in some ways, eh?
