TIMEX: THE STORY & HISTORY BEHIND AN AMERICAN WATCHMAKING IC

This article will be an interesting one mostly because it’s quite a personal one for me. People can usually define the earliest time that they became a watch fan: whether that it was a personal memory between you and a family member, or you had a life-altering experience between you and a timepiece, everyone has that moment in their lives.

Mine was in 1993, my birthday, and my parents brought me to the department store. I wanted this remote control car but I saw this watch. It was a pretty nondescript analog faced wristwatch, but it had writing on the white face that I couldn’t read because it had reflection.

The sales lady saw my interest and showed me this cool party trick: push a button and it glows! It lights up and it had a neat glow. I asked my dad if I could get this, and he said yes.

I didn’t know how to read time, but my parents taught me how to read the time and then expanded to why certain clocks had 12 and 24 on the face.

I looked at the writing and read it out loud: “Indigo”.
