TIMEX Fun Timer watches

In the late sixties TIMEX introduced their Fun Timer watches. A series of non-water resistant manual wound mechanical watches. In the seventies they became plastic water resistant watches. Strangely enough these watches are not to be found in any of the sales catalogs. Perhaps these watches were that different from their conventional portfolio that they were cautious not to offend their regular dealers and sales points. However, these Fun Timers definitely are FUN! 

The plastic Fun Timer collection

These Fun Timers all had a monocoque (movement has to be removed from the front of the watch) plastic case with metal bezel ring, came in bright colors and some came in matching strap as you can see. Sort of an integrated bracelet.  

Was this Fun Timer a ladies watch?


When looking at this 1975 KELTON ad, it seems that these kind of Fun Timers were aimed at a female target audience.

A series of plastic round and square cased watches in bright colours on plastic straps. 

So far the only reference I have found regarding these fashionable and high distinctive watches. 

Well, what's in a name. These watches definitely are FUN watches and clearly represent the roaring 70's.
