Timex Model 40 - 2 becomes 1

Here is the first batch, a mix of auto wind, manual wind and even electrics. Yes even a 1947 Mickey Mouse. - all serviced or tuned up to loo...

My favorite Timex advertisement, from 1952. Nice illustration of the v-conic escapement. 1952_American_Science_Creates_Medium.jpg I recall posting threads on the "Coronet" model from the now defunct Vintage Timex Forum on Network54.
