Ladies Timex Marlin 1950s
Timex print ads show His-and-Hers waterproof watches displayed side-by-side, both named Marlin. This is a waterproof ladies from the 50s, and is felt to be a Marlin model. This is one tough watch, with a thick case, and a heavy screw-down back. It has an inner dust cover I have yet to see on any other men's Timex watch! Chrome-plated case, luminous hands and hours, sweep seconds hand. Movement is # 22, and this one runs well. Measures 26.5 mm diameter without crown, 11 mm thick.
Watch with caseback removed showing dust cap, and below with the cap removed, and the movement exposed. These were movements wtih brass plates, and parts. One of the common early US Time movements, it is the same one used in the men's Marlins, as well as in children't character watches. One version of the #22 is with seconds hand, the ther without.
