Case:  The round shaped red plastic case measures 37 mm across (38 mm including the crown) and 37 mm lug to lug.  It is 14 mm thick.  The lugs are recessed within the case.  There is a brush-silver colored ring bezel surrounding the crystal on the face of the case.  The back of the case is marked Timex and Water Resistant.  There is a white colored plastic removable screw-down plug located on the case back which allows the case to be taken apart.

Dial: The round dial has a white background with funky beige spirals starting in the center and running to the end of the dial.  The outer rim of the dial is silver colored and mirrored and contains the twelve raised hour markers which are silver colored and mirrored as well.  

The straight Fils-style hour and minutes hands are black in color.  And the Fils-style sweep seconds hand is black in color as well. 

The crystal has a flat surface and angular sides and is raised 3 mm above the case. 

It is marked Timex and Water Resistant.

Movement: Mechanical Wind.

Strap: 16 mm genuine cow skin leather that is black in color

Comments: Is this a classic example of the psychedelic sixties designs or what?  And it’s a Timex!  What would any watch collection be without a Timex in it?

I was told (by the original owner) that this watch resembles a Peter Max pop art fashion design of the sixties psychedelic era.  It has a funky beige spiral designed dial accented by a silver colored mirrored rim and a red plastic case with black hands.  Now this is a real, no-doubt about it, psychedelic color combination and design.

This watch is in excellent cosmetic and running condition.  In fact, it keeps extraordinarily accurate time.
