For today it will be an Olympic Logo 'Q' from 1977. This comes from the first era of all stainless steel models Timex introduces in the late 1970's. The odd thing is the movements were not the best quality compared to the case. So finding one in working condition is not easy.

Great watches today - the Pepsi colored Rolex GMT is one of my favorite aside from the copper / brown / rootbeer dialed version

Nice looking Timexes (spelling??) Morris / Mark - maybe we need a thread for the brand on it's own? ;)

Anyways, export Day / Date Hamilton for Thursday
case #36596
11
either that or it's post 1977
signed strap / buckle

Yes, they are both from the same era and are in stainless steel cases.

What is the plural of Timex?

The pronunciation of the letter 'x' ends in an 's' sound, therefore you add '-es' to the word. For example: Box, boxes.

So 'Timexes' it is.
