    Timex Allied: Part 2

    The Chronographs I’ve been avoiding this topic. The Timex Allied collection has had me confused. When I first tackled the topic in Part 1, I did not want to include chronographs as the three-handers were trouble enough to sort out. Since then I have analyzed the Mk 1 collection I have noticed some ways that…

    Timex Waterbury United

    A step up in Field Fashion? When I first saw a Timex Waterbury United, I did not know what it was, but it hit the sweet spot for me. It had a field watch appearance, was small—things I like — but was different, more refined in some way Scout, Allied and Mk1? Then again, they…
