Vintage 1971 Timex "Marlin" Watch
I have always had a thing for old watches. There is something about the character of an old watch that just defines "Old School Cool" for me. I've just thought it was so much cooler to discover a beautiful old watch than to just walk into a store and buy a new one. There is a strength in knowing how old they are and seeing them faithfully keep perfect time. There is a magic in thinking of the life that this watch had before it came into your hands. And there is a beauty in knowing that some things just never go out of style.
When I was growing up, my dad never splurged on anything. His focus was on taking care of us kids. But the one thing that he loved was a great watch. I think I inherited that from him. As Blade + Blue is really a 'Thank - You' letter to my father for all that he taught us about being men, I couldn't be more excited and proud than to share this collection of beautiful found watches with you.
I just love the Marlin Collection by Timex and I always snatch them when I can. I found a Timex collector that had 2 beauties that I just had to have.
Based on my research, I estimate this watch to date back to 1971. He's got a classic face with those italicized numerals and bronze face. His stainless steel case measures 1.25" across the face.
The watch is in great condition and I added a new leather band to match that face.
This watch has been serviced and keeps great time and date. Daily winding required.
