The origin of Timex watches 

Timex was founded in 1854 as part of the Waterbury Watch Company, after which a popular watch from the current collection is named. The brand is known for its good quality watches for an affordable price. 

During World War II, Waterbury produced precision movements used in US Army detonators. The company received an award for this work, after which the shareholders decided to name the company the United States Time Corporation. 

In the 1950s the company was renamed Timex, the name under which they still operate today. In the late 1950s, one in three watches sold in the US was a Timex watch. Every American still knows the slogan from the 60s: 'It takes a licking and keeps on ticking'. In 1992, Timex introduced the first watch with an electroluminescent (backlight) dial. This Indiglo® system is present on almost all Timex watches today.
