Timex colour changing mechanical watch.

It's another mechanical watch today :-)
This one is by Timex, and is a little more unusual than yesterday's watch.

The watch shows as copyright 1969 by Pakter / Krauss, and only states the maker on the dial.

What makes it unusual is the ever changing colour pattern on the face. The watch face is split into 3 coloured sections, yellow, pink, and blue (cyan), and the same 3 coloured sections are on a transparent dial for the seconds. As the seconds tick past, the seconds disc and watch face show different colours depending on the combination.

UPDATE: I've now added a YouTube video of the watch in action: YouTube link

  1. I have one of these as well!!! I need to take it to a jeweler and have it cleaned and a new band put on it.

    Thanks for sharing!
