TIMEX factory new movements and finger
The Time Force movement which is identical was not showing any finger prints! Due to the good day light, the finger prints are not that visible. But if you look closely at the right hand side of the movement, you can see that there are some finger prints on the top plate. Looks like a TIMEX Cebu factory worker pushed the movement down without finger cots. Having found finger prints on 2 out of 5 TIMEX watches in my collection, I am thinking that TIMEX should improve hygiene at their Cebu (Philippines) assembly plant. Finger prints are avoidable and it only takes better management and supervision to eliminate them.
