History Of Timex
Established in Waterbury, Connecticut all the way back in 1854, Timex adapted traditional European clockmaking by combining it with American ingenuity to create the first truly affordable clock in history.
Timex went on to become the pioneers of modern watchmaking in 1916 with what they marketed as ‘A twist of the wrist’. Their ground-breaking yet simple design took watches out of our pockets and on to our wrists by the simple addition of a strap attached to welded loops, thereby revolutionising forever the way people kept time.
At the Chicago World's Fair in 1933, Timex created watched which allowed you to tell the time using everything from bullet trains to airships, and within three years, Mickey Mouse was the official timekeeper for over two million children.
Then during live television broadcasts in 1958, the watchmaking brand tried to destroy their watches in every way imaginable to prove that Timex can take a licking and keep on ticking. With quality now affordable, Timex watches were created using the first mass produced, high-quality watch movement called the v-conic in 1950. By the end of the 50’s decade, every third watch sold around the world was Timex brand.
In the mid 80’s, Timex put clock used at the finish line onto your wrist when they created the first sports watch. The Timex Ironman released in 1984 became your coach, as well as a symbol of your dedication and motivation, and together we have crossed almost every single finish line in the world together.
Then the Indiglo night-light of 1993 changed the face of time once again, as their signature blue backlight revolutionized how the world could read the time in the darkest of night.
