One of my hobbies is searching for lost treasures, mostly toys and watches. Living here in central New Jersey gives me lots of places to look. It’s amazing what I can find on a regular basis.
Info: Please read this information carefully before placing a bid. The picture shows two vintage Timex 21 jewel watches that I recently found. On the silver dial watch at the bottom it has the numbers: 6517 7265. I believe this watch was made in 1965. The diameter is around 34mm counting the crown. On the back it reads: TIMEX 21 WATERPROOF CHR. PLATED BEZEL STAINLESS STEEL BACK DUSTPROOF SHOCK RESISTANT. It is not running. There are marks on the crystal and on the inside dial. The stretch Speidel U.S.A. band has been cut to fit around a 7 inch wrist.
The other Timex 21 has a black dial with a light blue internal bezel. On the bottom of the dial it has the numbers: 66550 7571. I believe this watch was made in 1971. The watch when wound is keeping good time. The diameter is around 34mm counting the crown but gives a small look to it next to the silver dialed watch. It has a date feature. I was only able to get the date to advance by turning the hands 24 hours. On the back it reads: TIMEX WATER RESISTANT DUST RESISTANT STAINLESS STEEL BACK CHR.PL. BASE METAL. There are marks on the crystal but it is easy to read the time. The band is nylon and looks military. It is in good condition. These watches are primarily for the Timex enthusiast. The silver dialed watch will definitely need servicing.
As with any older mechanical watch it should be cleaned and oiled by a professional watchmaker or someone into Timexhorology.

Questions / Comments: As Obi Wan stated to Luke Skywalker in the movie Return of the Jedi, “Luke, you’re going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view”. I have tried to accurately describe this item. If you have any questions, just email me before you bid. Did I state something wrong? Please let me know so I can fix it or remove the item from auction. Searching for lost treasures is just a hobby of mine, it is not a business. I do it for fun and have helped out many people find something that they can not find locally.

There is no smoking or alcoholic beverages permitted in my home, but I do like my 100% Columbian coffee and semi-sweet dark chocolate J.
