Timex 34mm Marlin Mechanical (Hand Wind) Watch with Silver Dial #TW2R47900ZV

The Gentleman’s standard – then and now. This reissue of a 1960s timepiece pairs the purity, precision and pleasure of a hand-wound mechanical movement with the timeless sophistication of a sleek design. You wind the watch until you feel resistance on the crown, then stop. (be careful to not over wind). This should be repeated every day to prevent the watch from stopping. As Seen in Esquire Magazine, November 2017 issue.

The Marlin watch is throw-back vintage design in size and movement. It has a 34mm diameter case, a radiant silver colored dial with black hands and markers, and it features an acrylic crystal (like the original). Inside the watch is a mechanical, hand wind movement. The Marlin is destined to become a collectors item. Cool retro watch for sure.

Overpriced for What It Is January 11, 2019
Reviewer: krikor from Detroit, MI United States  
NOTE: Review is for watch, does not reflect upon Island Watch's great service.

Numerals and  warm silver sunburst dial look great, but don't outweigh the negatives for me at $199.

CHEAP FEEL and very lightweight. Too harsh, but dimestore novelty comes to mind.

TINY CROWN makes winding difficult and does not pull out easily... need to really pry it out with my nail.

ROUGH WINDING not as smooth as even lower priced watches,.

SCRATCH-PRONE ACRYLIC CRYSTAL is heavily domed, don't expect it to go unscathed very long. Less-expensive Orient Bambino have mineral crystals.

LIMITED FEATURE SET at this price. Other watches with a higher quality feel offer far more for less $

CHEAP BAND you will likely replace and further degrades the value equation.

MY RECOMMENDATION:Buy an Orient Bambino for far less unless a small 34mm watch is a must, or you must have it for looks or nostalgia. Though 40mm, I find it perfect even on my narrow wrists.

So tasteful January 1, 2019
Reviewer: Halldor Falur Halldorsson from Reykjavik, Reykjavik Iceland  
The dial, the strap, the arms and size. Just the perfect little watch for dressy or even everyday occasions. Gives the best vintage feel and the price is lovely. That sunburst champagne colored dial gets me everytime I look at it.

There were no faults and the shipping and packaging was excellent.

My boyhood watch re-created. December 8, 2018
Reviewer: Mark from Carmel, IN United States  
The 34 mm Marlin is a re-creation of my Timex at age 10 (1967).  I purchased it for nostalgia reasons.  Although I returned it, because the size was no longer right for me, it seemed to be very well made.  My only real complaint is the very small crown.  Remember, it's mechanical.  You'll be winding it often.  This would be a great watch for ages 8 through 28 (especially those into "vintage" items).
