2 Timex Twins

#1 Post by eclecticfunk » Sun Oct 02, 2016 8:28 am

The one on the left was mine. I found the one on the right in a case at a shop with a bunch of other trinkets. Note the difference in the chapter rings. They both run well, and are in really great condition.
I can still picture the tv commercials that said, "Timex, it takes a licking and keeps on ticking."

nice to pick up two at once. Do you know how to tell the year made?

No, I don't know how to date them.

I actually did not get them both at once. I had the one on the left for quite a while. I picked the one on the right up in a shop recently. It was so cheaply priced, and it started to run the minute I touched the crown.

I love this model and have had a few. Reminds me of the Hamilton Electric Spectra. But for a whole lot less money. :lol:

Here is the coding Timex used that would match the era of your Marlin's AKA the Orbit Dial
