The Timex Waterbury automatic watch collection is made up of several major lines in which the three-hand Waterbury Traditional and the Waterbury Classic, seen here, are found. Both variants are classic and versatile automatic watches that provide tremendous value and quality that Timex has become known for. Ranging between $249-$269, these watches are named after the town of Waterbury, Connecticut that Timex hails from. These are no-nonsense well made, simply designed and handsome American watches.

The Timex Waterbury Classic Automatic has a dressier style with legible, lumed pencil-style hands. It comes in the smaller case size of these two variants, measuring 40mm- wide and 12mm-thick with 50M of water resistance. The case alternates between brushed and polished finishes, and the dial is seen through the flat mineral crystal.

There are a few dial, case, and strap/bracelet variants for the Waterbury Classic. On the black dial variant, the watch is available on either the stainless steel mesh bracelet or a black leather strap. The white dial model is available only on the black leather strap. There is also a black dial rose-gold tone model that comes on a brown leather strap and is a dressier model. Something to note about all the Waterbury automatic watches is that the date window background always matches the color of the dial and they all have a quick release strap system.

The Waterbury Traditional Automatic leans more into a sporty, pilot-watch style dial that has broader sword hands as well as a larger 42mm wide case. Other than these two changes, the watches are quite similar to each other, though their dial and strap/bracelet options a bit different. There are two black dial variants, either on a black leather strap or a three-link steel bracelet and a white dial variant on the three-link steel bracelet.

Both the Waterbury Traditional or Waterbury Classic use a reliable Japanese Miyota movement that operates at 3Hz and has a 40-hour power reserve.

    I really dislike numbers of different sizes.

      Ray could be right
      Timex might be crazy
      But it just may be a Seiko 5 you’re looking for
      Turn on the Indiglo light
      And don’t try to play me
      Ray can’t go wrong for all Berndt knows
      But he could be right…

          You’ve heard Ray too many times
          But Raymond you’re a star
          You’re a ray of sunshine

    They’re not going to win any design or innovation awards or anything, but I think it’s great that Timex has made a strong push into mechanical watches. Be the gateway drug y’all!

  • funkright

    I see this in Ball watch products. All. The. Time. Minimizing the dial may be the answer or a more mass market larger movement.. I’d prefer a more mass market larger movement.

      Me too… I like 40mm size cases, no less, no more… but a proportional dial is more important to me.

      Someone here informed me of the Sellita 400… From the Sellita website:
      “The SW400-1 has all the benefits of the precision, reliability and robustness of the SW200-1 but with an increased diameter size of 31.00 mm. This large diameter is a perfect fit for men’s watches in contemporary sizes (40 to 46 mm diameter). The SW400-1 comes with a date display 44% larger compared to the SW200-1. The placement of the date is also optimised. Located more to the outside of the dial, the date window allows for larger-sized dials in a balanced design. Due to its 31.00 mm size, the SW400-1 can fit perfectly into large diameter casings without the need to resort to a spacer ring. It also allows to have a larger see-through case back in line with the diameter of the casing. Also the aesthetic of the movement is very pleasant owing to its bigger plate and new oscillating weight, which allows for a variety of customisations thanks to its large diameter.”

      COME ON, WATCHMAKERS!

  • ray h.

    This watch would have had an auto or hand wind in the 60’s and have sold for I would guess $15 or so, or about $150 in todays money.Even Timex is over pricing in this market.

  • SuperStrapper

    There’s not really much to write home about here, but I do assume they’ll sell a ton of them.

  • Playboy Johnny – Team Mariu$

    I feel betrayed – I trusted Miyota!

    You made me laugh, thanks : )
