Description

We know that Timex collectors will love this Kelton, from their French brand.  Great condition and working perfectly.

HOW DO WE DATE THIS WATCH?

From the serial number on the dial we can accurately date this watch to being made in 1974.

CONDITION

Timex built a factory in France and made watches there between 1962 and 1970, establishing a separate brand in Kelton.  This is a later one, built in Great Britain (but without that on the dial, presumably not to upset the French.)  The day wheel is only in French, and setting the right day date combination requires a little patience winding the crown back and forwards to trigger the right changes.  The movement is a basic Timex pin pallet item that is working well.  The rest of the watch doesn’t look to have been worn much – the plating is good, the dial very good and even the points like the crown that take the most wear are good.  The strap is new, and picks up the dark red dial detail.

This watch will be supplied with our Certificate of Authenticity.
