1959 Timex Display - Assortment #53

#1 Post by JerseyMo » Tue Aug 07, 2018 5:22 pm

Do I really need another vintage Timex display ot go along with the 5 I already have?

That was the question I asked myself a few days ago when I spotted one that has an automated portion to show the watches are "Shock Proof".

Oh yeah, I need this one and besides I already have the 1959 catalog page to go along with. Plus each of the watches to add to it.

A part is missing but looks to me that I can make up an offset cam of sorts to get it to work again.

Here is the catalog page along with the seller pic from ebay.

Up and running! - I notched a hex nut and soldered some spring wire to it. As the motor turns the wire slips over the lever and slowly pushes it down.
