It is clearly the most aesthetically pleasing movement. There are thousands of people that are working on and collecting vintage Timex that are way more informed on this topic. This is merely my perspective as a collector and occasional watch flipper.
I do shy away from unserviced Timex most of them with the date or day date. Problem is when you go to set these, if you set wind, wind, wind for any length of time the dry movement and wheels start slipping and ultimately make that complication fail.
I actually mark the date on my personal calendar and start the watch back-up from sitting to get the date right. The hand-wound mechanical movements are the heart of the Marlin line from Timex. Only three parts need to be removed once out of the case to do the recommended service. These are also workhorse movements that have stood the test of time admirably. It is highly desirable and the manually wound two plate movements are rock solid.
This watch is also waterproof. Again, this is my personal favorite because of the automatic movement and the simple good looks. This watch has some attractive dial designs and is often called a Marlin by unscrupulous sellers. This watch was produced from to Truth be told, I do not know a great deal about the Mercury, but I have one on the way to my home as we speak.
They sport a very simple two and three hand dials with the only variation being the numbering sequence on the dial. It frustrates me to see these watches being misrepresented and sold on the higher end of the scale. This happened to me in the first week I was buying vintage in large amounts.
Tough lesson learned, and one I ask you not to make. Pay attention to the model numbers. So buyer beware when looking at a Timex Marlin. They are not something I collect or wish to collect as I seek automatic or manual wind mechanical watches. That said, there are some beautiful examples if electric is your thing.
I prefer a second hand as I like the sweeping motion. These vintage Timexes are a nightmare in my humble opinion. If the watch is not serviced, these complications will fail miserably. Trying to set the day date feature requires excessive winding, and a dry movement will seize up. Take it from me, stay away from these pieces unless serviced. Generally aged to the point of no value and does not function like new.
Some people love them, and to each their own! They sport the manual wound Movement 24 and were produced in and I think of these as the unicorns as you rarely see them for sale on eBay at least. Often available and some are rare, but I do not buy the themed watches because it has a narrow appeal on resale.
I think they were a gimmick and I still see them as that today. I may get some hate email on this…. These pieces are something I am just learning about and I found one that is particularly interesting. The Timex Kaleidoscope designed by Pakter and Krauss has a multi-colored dial with a second hand that is a pie-shaped wedge that rotates around the dial creating movement and color changes. There are bright colored examples, but mine is a more subtle gold and silver combination.
Unfortunately, I do not have a Marlin to show, but here is a different model, the Timex Viscount, that I will use for an example on how to read the model, movement, and year manufactured. As you can see from this example, the catalog number model number is and the movement is 24, and finally, the year is The picture shown here is from the Timex Service Manual page 1.
This Viscount uses the M automatic and was made in I look for specific models and I prefer unique dials as they bring a much higher resale value, but often a higher price tag.
For example, I have a number of keyword searches saved and I let eBay do the search work for me. My first search criteria other than the brand is USA product location.
Next, I look for the selling method. You would be surprised how many times this has worked. Important to me is: I am not a watchmaker, or even a budding service person.
Zero bids is my favorite. This swooping in during an auction is no secret and all experienced eBay buyers use this strategy, so now you need to have your max bid strategy in place. Max bidding allows the system to bid for you anywhere along the auction cycle. Just to high to make money. I love those people! I found a rust-colored dial Timex Marlin with a homemade stainless steel band that looked like garbage.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Received this watch and it looks much better in person than it does on the website. The color is a nice darker brown, the dial is easy to read, and the holes are spaced very nicely for the perfect fit.
Looks nice and more than accurate enough. I've had this watch for about 3 weeks now. I purchased the version with the brass colored rim, cream colored face and silver second hand. I like the looks, it is very easy to read. I like how it includes the day and date. I'm usually not a fan of leather wrist bands, but I like this one. The Indigo light feature works really well in the dark and brightly lights up the dial and the hands are black against it, so it's easy to read at night too.
I also performed a little test. I wanted to see how accurate it is. So I set the watch down to the second using time.
It has gained 2 seconds. Doing the math, that makes it accurate to about 1 minute a year. My only nitpick is that I wish the overall size of the watch was a little bigger.
It's hard to determine the width of the watch online. But that's just my preference. Looks as it does in the picture, maybe a bit smaller. I love the watch face! I only have two reservations thus far: It came with a couple scratches on the rim, I hope that's the only thing that missed quality control. If you want to change the day, you have to wind the clock the whole way to get there.
This isn't really a big deal though. I recently bought both the Easy Reader and the Weekender versions. I bought the Weekender first because it was highly discounted at the time. Also, the hands on the Easy Reader extend across the center of the dial.
I'm still getting used to this. The Weekender lacks the extension. The Easy Reader is slightly smaller in diameter than the Weekender. I actually bought the Easy Reader because I thought the Weekender dial was a little larger than what I was used to.
I wear both about the same amount of time now. The more I wear the Weekender the less I notice it's larger dial. The Weekender I bought was marked down to under fifteen bucks. Fiction, What to believe. I've been looking for a casual watch for these past few months and this beauty is the one.
The saved money is real handy for a kid still in school. I already had an idea a petty one about what kind of watch I wanted. So it was awesome to find the Timex Reader. But after scrolling down the page and reading a few negative reviews about the absurd noise, pesky date setting and also the cheap price I was skeptical about the purchase. Whatever, I decided to just order it and see for myself.
Here's my some information about the watch if you're considering buying it, The face: It's white, just like the picture. I only say this because other watches by Timex advertise online a white face but are actually a yellow-creamy hue.
It's the colour teal and it also doesn't entirely light up the face of the watch. There's about half a centimeter of unlit area at the top of the watch. Think of it like a nearly-filled fish tank. It's a feature I won't see myself using much, so I care little about the defect.
