The value of most Timex watches is relatively low. Recent eBay sold listings range from around $10 to upwards of $250 or more, with a couple exceptions. Many of the pre-1989 watches sold went around the $40 price point.

Can a Timex watch be repaired?

As stated in the limited warranty, Timex may repair your watch by installing new or reconditioned and inspected components or replace your watch with an identical or similar model.

What happens if I dont wear my automatic watch?

An automatic watch (or a manual winding watch) doesnt get damaged when the movement stops. Its a very normal use case when you dont wear your watch multiple days in a row and forget (or dont want) to wind it. The movement will simply come to a rest, like a car engine running out of gas.

Is it better to use a watch winder or not?

A watch winder is not necessary, however it is a nice convenience as it allows you to grab your watch after a few days of not wearing it and be able to put it on without having to manually wind and re-set it. Keeping your automatic watch on a winder will keep the watch running and prevent the oils from settling.
