Marijane, a nice lady from Connecticut, sent us this nice email about how happy she is with Timex. Since we usually only talk about watches that cost enough to fund a a food program for starving children in Liberia, it’s nice to get some perspective.

I bought an inexpensive Timex watch for everyday use. I chose Timex because it was the first watch I ever owned and I knew it would stand up to ‘the test of time.’ I have other watches (one is the diamond collection series) and I use them when I want to show off the ‘good watch.’ Not that my everyday is not a good watch, it’s a simple Indiglo WR 50M that I purchased from Target for under $30.00. I’m writing because this watch really proved its ability to keep on ticking! I had attached it to my jeans belt loop because I didn’t want to wear it on my wrist one day. When it was time to wash the jeans, I didn’t see it looped on my pants. The pants went into the wash and then into the dryer. Even though I heard a slight noise as the clothes were drying, I thought it was just a zipper or metal button. When the clothes were dry, I took out the pants and began to fold them when I noticed my trusty watch still attached! I was a little scared to unbuckle it for fear I had ruined it. But, to my surprise, it was ticking away.

I want to thank you for your products over the years even the ‘cheap models’ just keep on ticking!!!

Happy customer from Uncasville, Connecticut
