Damn you Timex Marlin!

Recommended Posts

Timex reissued their Marlin hand winder. I picked one up from Todd Snyder for $156 after coupons. This watch is already sold out worldwide and the prices have gone as high as $539 on eBay. I'm so smitten with this damned thing that I went out and bought 5 more vintage Timexes. What a hobby!

All for around $30 apiece. Suspect that vintage Timex watches, especially hand-winders are going to start moving up.

Difficult for them to go much lower and if they do, so what, you've not lost much...

That's a pretty solid watch for the money! Glashute Senator vibe to it

Absolutely can't argue with that logic.

Agreed. The Marlin was a WTH purchase. Then it arrived and I fell in love. It's absolutely the smallest watch I've ever worn but has more presence than a 47mm Panaerai. Alright, that might be hyperbole, but it changed the way I thought about this style of watch.

Got this one recently. Electric, 1960's production and it works flawlessly, these damned vintage Timex watches really ruined the rep sport for me. LOL

This is how you know you've got it bad. All working perfectly and all at least 48 years old.

I have 3 watch-smiths that I follow on eBay. I try to catch them as they list and play let's make a deal. Just bought 7 from one of them in Canada. One was a vintage Marlin for $40 that is easily worth $125. I'll put a new strap on it and put into the rotation. Best part of buying from these 3 sellers is they all service the watches they sell.

Is that one Timex the "Astrology" one and did you by chance get it from the bay?  I was watching one just like it but missed out.

I swear you are the one that must be snatching up the ones I am looking and bidding on.  :pcsam:

:thumbsup:
