In 1854, Timex Group B.V. started out as Waterbury Clock in Connecticut's Naugatuck Valley. Sister company, Waterbury Watch, manufactured the first inexpensive mechanical pocket watch in 1880. During World War I, Waterbury began producing wristwatches, which had only just become popular. In 1933, the first Mickey Mouse clock was introduced, featuring Mickey's hands pointing to the time.
During World War II, Waterbury renamed itself U.S. Time Company. In 1950, they created a wristwatch called the Timex. Over the next three decades, Timex carried the slogan "It takes a licking and keeps on ticking" through a series of advertisements. It endured several "torture tests", such as falling over the Grand Coulee Dam or being strapped to the propeller of an outboard motor. With help from former Olympic broadcaster, John Cameron Swayze, Timex wristwatches grew in popularity. In later years, the company became Timex Group B.V. and has sold over one billion watches.
Caring for Your Timex
Do not expose non-water-resistant watches to water, steam, or other forms of moisture. Should the lens become damaged, replace it immediately to keep the module intact. When replacing the battery, locate the type on the back of the case.
