- Thanks Tom, I didn't wear this one for a couple of years, I changed the battery last night and it runs perfectly still. These 'Electronics' were high tech in the early 1970's but were still a hybrid that used transistors to fire the balance wheel. All of the Timexes marked made in Great Britain were made in Dundee Scotland. Though, they did have a dial plant in England. In it's prime the factories in Dundee were over 5000 workers. Do a search if interested, some nasty picketing near the end sealed the fate of Timex. 1st Plant opened in 1947 and in 1993 they were gone.
Hey don’t mention it Gary !
Want to thank YOU for all of this amazing insight here about electronic watches in general
Actually have to admit that I guess I never really totally understood what ‘Electronic’ watches were really all
about sir. It’s really something hearing how they were, or are evidently a totally different animal than your average every
Something else that’s really interesting, and so incredible is hearing how so many Timex watches were made in not only
England, but Scotland too !
Never knew any of that. ..Just always thought they were built specifically here in US Gary.
Wow, and can’t believe all of the people they had working for them, and that’s without counting in the people over here,
and anywhere else I may not know about !
Want to thank you again sir. Will definitely do a search about all of this. ..Man oh man, always learning ! It’s awesome !!!
