A Brand New . . . Old Timex
Many people assume that collecting vintage watches isn't affordable. However, I recently bought a brand, new, in the original box, (new old stock), Timex Mercury manual wind wristwatch on eBay for about $40.
It's a simple watch. But, it is interesting to compare it with today's Timex watches. I like the no nonsense styling of this 1970s vintage watch. It looks sharp!
