He will keep it only five years and pass on to me! This is fantastic, as I now have to wait only 30 years for that beauty -- and well worth it!

Pls advise when you send it and I'll set my alarm watch!

But to answer your question:

Old enough and wise enough to avoid answering that question!

But still -- well worth the wait for that Orient since Raven will keep it only five years. Just hope he does not try to take it with him! HaHa

SUPER Timex, my friend. Here's how you tell the age of most Timex watches >>>

Look at the bottom of your dial and you will see two sets of numbers. One set to the left of the "6" marker and another set of numbers to the right of the "6" marker. The number on the left of the "6" is the model number. The numbers to the right of the "6" refer to two things: (1) The movement caliber number and (2) the year of production. I cannot read your pic clearly, but I think the last two numbers to the right of the "6" look like either 76 or 79. That means the year of production is either 1976 or 1979. The numbers in front of the last two digits is the movement caliber number. Post the numbers to the right of the "6" marker and I will tell you more!

For the newer Timex watches, there is a code engraved on the case backs that tell you the year and month of production. Here is a link to a Timex chart that you should download and keep handy.

Sweet looking watch. It's a style that NEVER goes out of style. For a nearly 30 year old watch, it is as elegant looking today as any dress watch on the market. ENJOY!

Hope this helps.

Cheers, happy.gif

But it certainly is a beautifully designed piece.

Both the hands and indices are gorgeous!

It seems to look like a very tired watch, but nonetheless it's very nice.



I appreciate the extra pic happy.gif

I've never seen that dial before, so "clean" and simple designed.

The 4006-6070 Bell-Matic with numerals came in black or white dials >>>

No score for this post

In fact, based upon my observations, these -6070's were the only Bell-Matics to have Arabic numerals on the dial.
[linked image] [linked image]

The only other -6070's I have seen are also oddities in that they omit the jewel count from the dial.
[linked image]

The 4006-6070 style came later in the Bell-Matic production run (1967-1978).
