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.
