Watch Review: Timex Uni-Sex Easy ReaderOn Sunday, April 26, 2015, a man made an exciting discovery at a North Georgia Goodwill. It was a Timex watch unlike any other. Now watch collectors can only wonder if this watch will reach the rarified heights that other unique thrift store watches have attained at auction. In February, a man found a 1959 Jaeger-LaCoultre dive watch in a Phoenix Goodwill. His $6 watch find sold for $35,000 at auction.
What makes this Timex watch unique?
Why did you choose this particular watch?
1. It looked like a man's watch and I am a man. Men's watches seem to be exceedingly rare at Goodwill.
2. It was actually running.
Have you made any improvements to this watch?
My next move was to leather strap out for a velcro and nylon strap that looked considerably more rugged. It's amazing how much difference a $5 strap from Walmart can make. I believe that I have boosted the value of the watch immensely. It's certainly a watch that I can wear regularly now.
