Timex Electric series
The TIMEX Electric watches date back to 1962 and had a M67 movement. The beginning of a very successful series of watches, produced in large volumes and off course cheap for the consumer. Because of their takeover of Durowe and Laco many of the Electric watches originated from West Germany. Later on they were also assembled in Taiwan and the Philippines.
