Timex - the big-name watches for America

Sunday, 12 April 2009

timex watchesTimex Corporation, watch manufacturing company, is currently one of the reputed brands in America: this is № 1 Watch Brand in USA, Canada, Great Britain and Mexico. This company is in the list of Top Five World Biggest Companies, and this is regardless of the fact that it hardly survived the crisis of quartz watches at the time whereas the majority of Swiss watch maker companies did not. However, this is not an obstacle for the Timex to open and keep representations in more than 60 countries of the world (furthermore, watchmaker workshops of this brand run in 20 countries). On the top of it, Timex Company is the official partner to «Locomotive» football club, and participates in the «Russian Railways Cup» tournament as a Time-keeper (time sponsor).

This company history dates back over 150 years ago, since 1857, in Waterbury town, State of Connecticut. It was the time when «Waterbury Clock» was specialized in manufacture of table and wall watches. Watches manufactured in were supplied both to domestic market of America and to European, as well, and by that time it won popularity among many people. To the beginning of XX century «Waterbury Clock» Company expanded the production and produced wrist watches under the «Ingersoll» brand name. Considering small watches for nurses, the company masters sophisticated them and adjust the wristlet to them to keep the time. Thus, watchmakers of «Waterbury Clock» invented the idea of wristwatches, in parallel with the Swiss masters.

This company won the world's popularity and fame thanks to creating the first clock with the little Mickey Mouse with his hands pointing the time under license from Walt Disney.

Nevertheless, many other cartoon characters also took their places with «Waterbury Clock» but it was watches with the world-known Mouse that were replicated for more than million units. Yet, it was the first watches in the world manufactured in this amount.

In 1941, two Norwegian expatriates, Joachim Lemkul and Thomas Olsen bought «Waterbury Clock» and they used to manufacture wick timers during the war, and it was very beneficial for the company that it expanded significantly.  Yet, after the war the Norwegian businessmen decided not only to deal with watches manufacture but the watches available and accessible to the wide layer of consumers, that is with cheaper but the accurate and reliable mechanism.  And in 1949 they implemented their idea and in 1951 the name «Timex» was first introduced, and by 1960 «Timex» became the bestseller in USA.

During the hard time of Quartz boom development, «Timex» Company tried to do their best marketing the new demand from consumers. And by 80s, the company masters discovered a new niche for their products and accented in issue of watches for sport purposes. Mass passion for the sports developed a real boom in this sphere, however, regardless that electronic watches totaled the half of the watches market of that time, they failed to be fully functional and well designed. And «Timex» Company provided the market with the same, when they manufactured the first watches for runners «Triathlon», and soon after a line of «Ironman».

Comfortable and attractive design was developed by «Times» personal inventions. And in 1992 this company was the first to supply the new technology of the face luminous from inside - «Indiglo» light, and later on it improved the watches with another function - night light regime. The watch makers of this company developed «i-Control» system in 2000, which was very simple to select the desirable regime and set ups of the watch at ease. Yet, it is possible to simply turn the outer ring round the face, and also by pulling and rotating the winder.

The company achieved progress on a regular base, and currently the market is presented by comfortable sporty, classic and children models of a small price, convenience, good design, reliability of mechanisms and latest developments of the company. Thus, over 80% of the entire watches assortment was equipped with «Indiglo» light, including very simple watches for children and classical watches. «Timex» mechanisms are employed even by «Reebok», «Guess», «Timberland» and other watches, and the signature «powered by Timex» is put on the rear cover, and the side edges of bracelet link are rounded to prevent quick tousling of the shirt sleeve brim. Thus, the appropriate logo by «Timex» could be «We first think of consumers».
