    Ariel Adams of aBlogtoWatch reviews the Timex Waterbury Automatic watch. This particular white-dialed variant (Ref. TW2T69900) comes in a stainless steel 40mm-wide case which houses a Japanese Miyota automatic movement. Pricing is $249 USD.

    Waterbury is the name of the original city in Connecticut where Timex was based. It has since moved the headquarters a few miles away, but the “Waterbury” spirit in the brand runs deep and is a name the brand seems to apply to its more “yesterday-looking” products. The Waterbury Classic Automatic is deceptively simple but with a dial that has lovely proportions and legibility. It reads like a very comfortable wall clock — and that is a good thing. The ring of Arabic hour numerals is attractive, paired with properly sized hour, minute, and seconds hands. A date window near 3 o’clock is set in a bit, and doesn’t require the removal of the 3 o’clock hour marker. The stepped date window is a subtle but refined touch that upgrades the overall look of the timepiece.


    Timex produces a few versions of the Waterbury Classic Automatic, including both this off-white dial and one in black. There are a few case and strap/bracelet option available, including a mesh metal Milanese-style bracelet (which costs just $10 more than the leather strap). A good value in both bang for your buck and versatility, the Timex Waterbury Classic Automatic watch has a retail price of $249 USD on the strap and $259 USD on a metal bracelet.

    We applied a new movement to an old favorite. Ticking inside is a tried-and-true 21 jewel automatic movement for a more accurate, longer lasting timepiece. Powered by your motion as you wear the watch, the movement can store a maximum 40 hours of energy. If motionless longer than 40 hours, wind the watch using the crown until you feel resistance, set it and place the watch back on your wrist where every motion will provide energy for the movement. The stainless steel case is complemented by its black dial and stainless steel mesh band. Like our craftsmanship and commitment to our heritage, some things are just automatic.

    If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher.
