Vintage Eye - Timex Marlin

Post by koimaster » April 1st 2021, 8:38am

Timex has never been a luxury brand, nor has it ever attempted to be. It has simply remained, at least since its modern debut in the 1950s, as an inexpensive and reliable option for those seeking out a watch capable of the two most basic requirements: to tell the time and not break. This is an ethos so ingrained in the brand’s history that one of its first advertising campaigns featured numerous “torture tests” of Timex watches, as narrated by the famed news anchor John Cameron Swayze, alongside the now-iconic slogan: “It takes a lickin’ and keeps on tickin’.”

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
