The first Timex was seen in 1949 and since that time Timex has been a
contender for producing quality watches at affordable prices. One main
reason this is so is that during this time, the majority of jewelers

their competitors. In the beginning, many jewelers refused to sell the
Timex watches. Timex was not about to give in and choose instead to

keep up with new competitors in the digital market. In 1972, the first
digital Timex hit the market. Of course, throughout the years, Timex
has worked to stay ahead of their competitors with new innovative

Another great thing about Timex watches is they produce watches for
everyone. They do not cater to only the diver, the woman, or the man.
