VINTAGE TIMEX ELECTRIC WATCH

Today it's my vintage Timex "Electric" Wrist Watch. This one belonged to my grandfather and is one of the first battery operated watches. I think I dated it to 1967.
It's a classic looking watch. Gold filled, simple lugs and no winder... it's electric!


Here's where a winder should be. but where is it?

These were made in France. I'm not sure which manufacturer

Actually it's like an Accutron where the time set is on the back... that big circle is for the battery. Plus, you can tell it's old since it still says Waterproof!

Vintage watches and vintage guys go together. You can never have too many... even cheaper ones like these are cool, as nobody wears them any more. I just need to find a band that's period for the watch and I'm good to go.
