Re: Timex Marlin Blackout

That's interesting information, JerseyMo. So with this reissued model, I'm guessing that they put on the numbers just for nostalgia rather than reflecting the actual case color, movement, and year. Still a nice touch though. Thanks for catching the flub with the watch name I put out with my pictures...

Re: Timex Marlin Blackout

By the way, just like the vintage Timex Marlins, the Marlin Blackout has the catalog and movement/year series of numbers at the bottom of the dial's 6 o'clock position.

It reads "20242465"

Re: Timex Marlin Blackout

It's here! My Timex Blackout from Todd Snyder arrived today. It is a sweet watch. Everything lines up well and the watch started running with the very first wind. It's been about 6 hours now and it doesn't seem to have gained or lost any time. I'll track it more closely this weekend, but I'm just en...

Re: Timex Marlin Blackout

Thanks, JerseyMo. I haven't come across many with intact time rings so I'll be on the lookout. Those old catalogs are a great tool for sorting and refining collections.

Re: Timex Marlin Blackout

Now, I'm going to have to look for a vintage black Marlin as I like having the original watches and the reissues. Here are three pairs in my collection that see a fair amount of wrist time. I was really happy several years back when Timex drew from their earlier designs to create their vintage-inspi...

Re: Timex Marlin Blackout

Those are some beautiful watches, JerseyMo! I have the Black Max with the 24 movement (no calendar). I like how the date window is framed on your Black Max dial. I don't know if I could ever part with my vintage wristwatches, having spent so long hunting them down on Ebay and thrift shops in additio...

Timex Marlin Blackout

I'm new to this forum, but love vintage Timex watches which I've been collecting for a few years. I was very excited last year about the Timex Marlin Reissue given its beautiful and fairly faithful reproduction of the original. Plus, Timex was putting out a decent mechanical watch again, so what's n...
