Here we go again...another Timex

Postby JAS1125 » February 23rd 2018, 9:57am

My last one was one that was the same model as my Dad's.
This time, I found one that was the exact model I wore in high school......bit of a nostalgia kick

Seller Pic.....Timex Marlin, 1971

I'll report on the condition when it arrives.

Looks like you hooked a good one. Congrats on landing it. :D


I cannot remember as far back as high school, way too long ago.

Being a hoarder helps...I still have the original although it hasn't worked for years.

That’s a cool little watch. In 1971 I was three years old.

Just thought I would throw that out there. 😜

Thats nice, John.

I bought a Timex in 1964 in the Bx and wore it the whole time I was in the Air Force and later. Was that model or one very similar to it. Dont remember what ever happened to it.
