Hi, and yet again I have added a review from a brand that isn’t strictly and discount store, but once again, their products and pricing are so keen it needs to be included. So, here we are again asking the same question, are Timex New Year offers genuine sales or a marketing scam? Let’s take a look are their product line, price points, and customer feedback.
What Is Timex?
It’s safe to say everyone has heard of the Timex brand founded in 1854 as the Waterbury Clock Company later the Timex Corporation before becoming the Timex Group USA in 2008. It’s an American manufacturing company with its headquarters in Middlebury, Connecticut, that’s built its reputation for high quality, low cost watches for the `Man in the Street`.
The low costs high quality was made possible by employing the combination of automation, precision tooling techniques, and the durability was accomplished through a new hard alloy developed through wartime research, Armalloy. These innovations eventually led to the debut of the Timex brand in 1950.
Now, Timex own the luxury watches groups Valentino, Salvatore, and Ferragamo, producing products in both the far East, and in Switzerland utilizing high-end Italian designs with cutting edge German engineering, and often based on technology developed in the United States.
Finding customer feedback on Timex was so difficult to find. Maybe because it’s such a brand that nobody needs to leave reviews. What I can offer you is a review from a fellow blogger in the space, so you can see what others are saying about the Timex brand.
Read what Cameron Martel of watchesyoucanafford has to say, it may give you something to get on with.
In terms models, there are some nice examples to choose from. Take a look at the new years, promotions and check out the what you can find from sales area. For individual models, I suggest you investigate the Metros smart watch with smartphone connectivity.
The Metropolitan+ is a stylish activity tracker that successfully blends the functionality of activity tracking while retaining the look and feel of a traditional analog watch, and comes in a number of classics styles.
Looking for a `grown up` Timex with a complication? Look no further than the Timex Chronograph offering numerous styles and colors to suit just about everyone’s tastes from the Weekender to the Miami, to the Waterbury and more.
For the timelessly classical look with a new feel try the Waterbury collection on for size. With all the modern advances in technology and materials, this collection offers a beautiful line of watches with many styles, colors, and straps, but all with the same design cues that make Timex, Timex.
Of course, the originals will always hold a special place in people’s hearts, so revisit the past, today, and enjoy some Timex nostalgia.
Proven Track Record
What can be said about Timex that you don’t already know? This is a rhetorical question, of course, there’s nothing I can tell you about them you don’t know. The brand has been with us forever and we know it`s reliable and its record is implicit in that we know it and accept it without question. This is its track record, but for some reason, we as a whole don`t seem to recognize the brand and give it the respect it deserves. For too long this brand has been overlooked and taken for granted, and I for one, would like to see that change.
The downside to shopping here is the US delivery only. I apologies to my European readers and suggest you take a look at the WatchShop, but for those of you in the USA, this is a great place to shop for affordable and beautiful watches.
My conclusion here is going to be short. As I just pointed out in the previous passage, the Timex brand has not been given the respect it richly deserves and I’d like to see that change. The product is well designed and built, with Italian design and German/Swiss engineering. The understated, classic looks hide the excellent quality and it all comes at an affordable price.
Do you want a good, modern, cheap watch? Look no further. You know the brand and you know the quality, but you probably didn’t think TIMEX when you decided to buy a watch. My advice, give Timex a second chance, there’s no scam here, just good quality and a low price.
