Yes there are rare vintage Timex - 22972570

#1 Post by JerseyMo » Mon Mar 13, 2017 5:22 pm

When you take into account that for many years Timex produced watches at high volume for global sales, it is hard to think some could be rare.
Well last week I was lucky to get one that is just that in my opinion. Here is the Timex Sport Series #22972570 made only in 1970. Found in non-working order and in all original condition.
I tweaked a kink out of the hair spring and off she went. Just for good measure I gave the movement the Timex recommend service.

Here she is all cleaned up and look at that blue dial shine!.... one grail down and just a few more to go.

if I ever come across the 22772570? (gold toned case with black dial) I will have found one of the rarest!

Very nice!

Does it even have the original strap? Seen them get brittle with age, one in good shape would be a fantastic find.
