I've started a vintage watch wiki for Timex and other sub-collectable watches:

http://www.bluwiki.org/go/Vintagewatches

I'm still researching the best wiki host for a permanent solution, and I may move this--However if I do, I will move all content linked from this page to the new one, and I will announce the change here.

Please--Add some content! The easiest way is to go to the edit link on the main vintagewatches page, type

[[title of the content you want to edit]]

(using the double square brackets) where you think it belongs and save the page. This will bring you to the new version, with your new link. Click on your link and you'll wind up on the empty edit page.

If you know something useful, please post it even if your spelling is bad and you don't know how to format it. If you see something where the spelling or format could be improved, please improve it. If you see something missing information, add it.

Dave,

This is a great start. I like the web site and think you are on the right track.

I did see the page on crystal polishing and liked the pictures. You have some nice results and the pictures show it. Turtle Wax polishing and Turtle Wax rubbing compounds are still my preferred method for plastic crystals, but your results speak for themselves.

Thanks,
Bill T

If you've got a different method, post it in addition to what I've got! I don't want this to be "Sevesteen's guide to Timex"--My goal was to get it going, pointed in the general direction I thought was best, then let it go where it will, as long as it's somewhat watch-related.

You don't need pictures to submit an article--Write up what you do, let it go, and hopefully someone else will give it a try and polish your submission. (no pun intended...)
