Picked these up locally as I’ve been on a Timex kick.

I don’t know much about them other than the Q since it came with original box and paper work.

They are all original and the stretch bracelets are pretty filthy. What is the best way to clean up he bracelets, cases and acrylic?

I really love the Q, and will be restoring that one for sure. My question is do you guys think the other 2 are worth cleaning and having a watch maker fix them up?

I also need to figure out which battery these need to fire back up.

I sort of answered my own question. All took a 357 battery and worked perfectly with a fresh one.

I’m having my local watch/clock guy polish and clean them. He did this one on the spot but the other two will be a bit more thorough.

Very nice. I asked because the version with the screw in the middle of the crown is their first version of the electric the M67 movement, based on a Laco design. Yours is the M84 movement, which is still pretty nice.

The Q Quartz is a nice pick up. I've had mine for a year and it's been a lovely watch. If you haven't found the trick for the quickset date, I can post the picture from the manual how to do it. The day is not quickset, though.

The last one on the left looks to be an M40 movement. They're nothing too fancy, but that's part of their charm. The Q Quartz has similar architecture and just adds the quartz crystal and chip.

Thanks for that. I believe the quickest you basically have to go from about 9 until when the date changes and then go back again and repeat correct?

I figured to have them all cleaned up would be worth it since I picked them all up for a steal. They are fun little watches. I’m excited to pick up the Q on Sunday. I dig the Numerals on the left one, excited for it as well. Pretty cool how they fired up right away. The Q took a bit of oil and air cleaning but after about a minute of tinkering it had a strong heart beat.
