Timex has just introduced a new collection of watches with perpetual calendars. Timex Perpetual Calendar watches do not have to be reset after months with fewer than 31 days. They work by keeping track of not just the date, but also the day, month, and the year so that the watch knows how many days are in the current month, and even takes leap years into account.
As an added bonus, not only do these watches come with 7-year batteries, but Timex will even replace the battery for you for free. All Timex Perpetual Calendar watches also have the Timex Indiglo night-light built in, and are water resistant to either 50 or 100 meters (165 or 330 feet).
Timex Perpetual Calendar watches range in price from $60 to $85 which they state is “hundreds less than other similar brands.” By “similar brands,” I’m guessing they are referring to Seiko Perpetual Calendar watches. Seiko offers a higher-end collection of perpetual calendar watches for between $300 and $495 retail.
So if you’re sick to death of fixing the date on your $4,000 Rolex 5 times a year, send it to me, and I’ll send you a $60 Timex in exchange that you will never have to mess with. I’ll even pay for your battery replacements.
