TIMEX Electric Series
The Electric series of TIMEX date back to 1962 when the first Electric watch model 9017 was presented to the public. TIMEX Electrics have been produced until 1983 and already succeeded by the Dynotron Quartz models. Like most if not all TIMEX movements, they were produced in large volumes and were robust but cheap.
As the take-over of Laco (Durowe) was the way TIMEX got into Electric watches, most of these originated from West Germany. In the mid 70's production was moved to Taiwan and the Philippines.
