Hear! Hear! Not Chinese (sorta)...My first Timex (sorta)
Today, though, at Costco in scenic Grande Prairie, I bought this...
...because 1) I wanted a Coke bezel watch and this looked fun enough. and 2) because today is the day I got my first hearing aids!!!
I need the aids because of a) too much (really, not enough) time around very loud amps and PA systems, and b) too much very full volume singing practice in my car. As a consequence, I have the affliction that should be colloquially known as Pete Townshend's Disease.
Love the hearing aids, and quite like the watch.
The Q isn't shy about being quartz but I love the case size, the classic bracelet, the classic 60's diver look, and now I have something I consider a "real" Timex in my collection.
I've always respected the brand for value and for putting out some very nice pieces over the years. I'm pretty sure the aluminum painted bezel isn't likely to last long looking pristine--but I can get something else if that bugs me.
It was a good day.
