Hello everyone, I recently inherited a Timex Time Machine (1972) from my late grandfather. This was a watch that he used to frequently wear in his younger years but at some point I assume the watch stopped working. After inheriting it I decided to take it to a watch repair shop to see if it needed a battery. Once the repairman placed the battery in the watch it started ticking only for a few seconds. He explained that the watch was wanting to tick but due to this model being a hybrid piece (half mechanical and half quartz) it would be incredibly hard to repair. He was not exactly sure but he believed that it was possible that one of the circuits was fried, due to the watch ticking for only a few seconds after shaking. He explained that the main spring was able to move but due to circuit not working the polarity of the magnets was not able to wind the watch. So this brings me to my current situation. I am just looking for a place with answers because there is very little information online about this watch. If anyone knows where I could find a replacement movement, either an M62 to match the current or possibly a movement that would fit inside my current housing and allow it to tick I would be very grateful. Any help is appreciated -LB
