  1. Dead Timex Model 63 Quartz

    nice look, there a a few others of the same year you may want to be on the lookout for. The one with the Pepsi bezel is the perhaps the most difficult to find.
  2. Dead Timex Model 63 Quartz

    I have a specialized tool use for this sort of movement. well okay it is not so special but it does the trick. The tool is no more than a strain if mainspring about 2 inches long attached to a small wooden stick. dab the metal with some lube and slip in into the train of the movement where you can see in the battery compartment. next to remove the stem you pull the crown out that with a pair of tweezers you slip them into the area that has two slots. this expands the retainer clip and allows you to remove the stem. grease the tip of the crown and install it back. there is a quiz so take notes! Ask any vintage Timex collector about how loud those electrics are and they will all same the same. "Oh yeah they are loud". the sotry goes that Timex actually engineered them that way so the ticking sound reminder owners of a mechanical. well good luck, you have gotten further than most already. oh and those clips Mel is referencing.... I have a few dozen of them. they do come in handy.
  3. Dead Timex Model 63 Quartz

    a few more tips. - check the circuit board is not cracked. You can actually remove the board and run a jumper across the terminals. It will not run correctly but this tells you if all else is running. - insert the battery and apply light pressure to hold it in place. than give the balance a flick. does it attempt to sing at all?
  4. Dead Timex Model 63 Quartz

    have a look at this link.- I outlined the base process to getting the movement working. https://www.watchrepairtalk.com/topic/6736-1975-timex-dynabeat-basic-restore/?tab=comments#comment-67168
  5. Timex Black Max Project

    I found that the pallet forked had over banked. By backing out the end cap I was able to move it back into potion. The watch is all cleaned up and ready for the collection now.
  6. Quartz Conversion - Reverso -

    Two more pics
  7. I'm sure you have all seen or heard of manual winder converted over to quartz. YUCK!But, have you ever thought about how to convert a quartz over to manual? I have, and so tonight I went ahead and came up with this one.
  8. Timex Black Max Project

    The Black max is a definite 'Grail Watch' prized by vintage Timex collectors. I was fortunate this week in obtaining one that appears to be new old stock. Although grimy and not running, this will become a jewel in my collection. Following is the before picture and a link to the TV commerical that introduced the watch. Stay tuned as this project develops! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeHDQw1VTFg
  9. Timex Red Nebula Electronic

    This one just came in today along with 59 of his friends! I little tweaking, some JerseyMo magic and it is ticking away just fine.
  10. Timex Red Nebula Electronic

    Yes, a very 1970's dial and I'd say that crystal would buff out just fine. That is unless those are cracks and not scuffs.
  11. Timex Red Nebula Electronic

    No, that is a name that is often used to describe the dial. The model itself comes from the "Electronic" series. Red Nebula just sounds more exotic!
  12. Timex Red Nebula Electronic

    yes, they are orange. I like that, will use it as a tag line. A lot of 60 is coming in today which brings me to about 300 I have to "get working". one is a Black Max....funny how we just mentioned this model. and bam one shows up. Now about that pile of gold...
  13. Timex Red Nebula Electronic

    Yes, the watch runs.
  14. I recently found the correct strap to match this unique dial from Timex. What do you think?
  15. The only year of production was 1958. and yes I have both the black and white dial version. Somewhere I do recall having the instruction sheet. Now that is even more rare than the watch!
