Dating Timex Watches

 
Timex Wrist WatchTimex did not use serial numbers on their vintage watches but there are ways to date a Timex watch. From 1963 onwards a string of numbers may be found at the bottom of the dial on mechanical watches, the last two digits refer directly to the last 2 digits of the date, and no decoding is required. This string may be separated into 2 groups by the 6 marker, it is the last 2 of all digits that will tell you the year. This code is often very small and easy to miss.

Watches
 
A watch is a portable timepiece intended to be carried or worn on or by a person, and designed to keep a consistent movement despite the motions caused by the person's activities. There are two main types of watches namely a wristwatch designed to be worn around the wrist, attached by a watch strap or other type of bracelet, and a pocket watch designed for a person to carry in a pocket, often attached to a chain.
