Timex Champagne 1965 Marlin

Recommended Posts

 

I have this Marlin with a Champagne dial I'm being told Timex didn't make this dial and was probably discolored from age. But I'm thinking they did as I have seen a few over the years with this dial can anyone confirm this thanks.

I've heard this effect called 'tropicalized', meaning heat has changed the color.  If this is the current term to use of if it is even a word I don't know. but it sounds interesting.   Picture yourself on the beach, the waves are rolling, the palms swaying in the breeze, a cold drink in hand... endless parade of  bikinis walking by and ..... than suddenly the calm is broken by "HEY ARE YOU STAYING AT THAT WOMAN?"....

Have a nice day!

    • This is with the watch fully (manually) wound Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • The movement has actually got worse. Not sure if it was the date transition after all?? Now although running really well, the watch will only last 20 minutes or so off the wrist then stop.... When wearing it keeps good time?!? Luckily the seller has given a full refund and I’ve purchased a new one. I’m guessing it left the production line on a Friday afternoon.

    • I did ponder the mail thing as well, I received a letter from the head of European operations saying that it was vital to stay safe during this period and thanking us for working during this period ( Believe me I wouldn't be if I had the option ) and outlining measures to take, this is a multi national company that until three days ago didn't have hand sanitizer or disinfectant available I had to bring my own. What struck me about this letter was how totally unnecessary it was because the day before I had read the exact same message on a email he had sent to everyone, why on earth send it as a letter ?

    • I knew an optician who used to have people come back in with glasses saying, "I just can't see with these new glasses." As his story goes, after the second time of adjusting various things on the fit of the specs, he'd just nod and take them in the back. He said that he'd put the specs down on a table and dance around them, chanting various mystical chants that implored the spectacle gods to make them right. He'd then hand them back to the patient, who would often smile with acceptance before walking away happy, and without knowing the miracle they had just been a part of. Yours must be frustrating because it's easy to prove that the watch is working, which you do. With eyeglasses you can't experience what the wearer is. Perhaps you should suggest that they get their eyeglass prescription updated. I know a guy...
    • I have been concerned about the coronavirus being transmitted via the mail from the beginning. I thought that it may be the reason why so few young children seem to have been contracting the virus. After all, with few exceptions, mail is usually retrieved and handled by adults. Just a hair-brained theory I had. Who knows if it has any validity. With one stupid exception, I have washed my hands immediately after opening the mail. After that brain-flatulence, I know bring in the mail and drop it in a bin. Two days later I open it. If something is in a plastic container/envelope, I will handle it more carefully, as it is reported that the virus can last 72 hours on plastic. Our overuse of plastic may get us yet. So yes, I agree that mail transmission has to be considered as we work our way through this pandemic. Gloves, hand-washing, mail quarantine bins, whatever it takes to outlast the spiky little devils. Stay healthy all. Cheers.
