  1. I had to laugh about the Timex watch. I owned a Timex Ironman for about 15 years and it only died last year. So I got another one for about $30. Call it the $2/year watch.

    As “the most interesting man alive”, I must declare: “I don’t wear a watch very often. But when I do, it’s a Timex Ironman Classic.”

  2. The Timex Ironman Watch. Yes! I’m on #3 (I’m 48). Used on in high school for track & cross country, had #2 up until last years vacation where it finally gave out from too much salt water getting in it. I put it on my father’s day wish list and I SO happy to get it. My wife told the kids I’d be thrilled with it and I was!
