Timex Watch Vintage Commercial Videos

Timex watches are not often the object of collector attention and don’t share the prestige enjoyed by their vintage counterparts, but it can be easy to forget that Timex watches were enormously popular in their day. At points in the 1950′s and 1960′s Timex accounted for more than 50% of watch sales in the US, something often quickly apparent when browsing a typical yard sale or thrift store. While perhaps not marvels of horology, maybe even more so than the rest of the American history of watchmaking Timex was a splendid marvel of ingenuity, economy, industry, and mass-production economies of scale.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Cool. I grew up with those commercials, after we got our first TV in 1954.
