Timex models? I hope I am not violating the forum rules by asking this. I am asking for the expertise of those knowledgeable about the vintage timexs, what is the most vintage model that timex currently makes?

...( in my opinion )the Marlin - Timex model no. 21191. You can search for it on Timex's website. Neat that they decided to call it the Marlin, just like the original one from the 50's!

This is a big help to me. I am not trying to crash this forum, I have a lot of respect for what you guys are doing here. I love vintage, and I decided nothing could be more vintage than timex. However, I probably am not enough of a purist to get a used watch. The Marlin looks like a good reproduction, I am excited. I just wish they made it in gold. Thanks for the help!

Which is more vintage do you think, #20011 or #2D441 or #21374 or #21813 or #2C021 or my vote #2D701?

Bad news, too, people have no taste. I think Timex introduced a vintage line quietly and just as quietly ended it

I am going to dig up a picture of my Timex Triathlon that I wore in Infantry Basic Training and AIT and post a picture of it, it took a licking and kept ticking!

...have elements of the past - all of the ones you mention are nicely styled. None are "vintage" though - they are not "copies" of Timex's made in the past. The only one would be the one I mentioned in my earlier post. Just a quick suggestion: if you want a vintage look to your watch, why not get just that: a vintage Timex. You can easily get one for $5-10 on Ebay - running and keeping time ( and for the price of a new one - why not get 4 or 5? You could have an Automatic, a manual wind, maybe an Electric/Dynabeat - all with different styling...?! ). There's nothing like wearing a vintage Timex! Let us know what you think!

thanks, let me look around a bit. i would like the watch to say "waterproof" and i know that is only possible with true vintage.
