Is there truly no love for Timex?

Because I have a young family and money is tight, I've had to sell off my more expensive watches and have decided that to satisfy my watch addiction for the next few years I'm going to rely on Timex watches. I've already got a few but I'm going to continue to build my collection.
I've really found some sharp looking pieces out there and wondered if no one on here has much love for Timex?
Surely in this forum folks could share some of their Timex watches? I know there used to be a dedicated Timex forum but it got dissolved into this forum so are there still Timex collectors out there?

I don't have any pictures, but I must say that Timex watches were (and continue to be) a favorite of mine. I was browsing the other day and found this interesting link to old advertisement "torture tests" which Timex performed to demonstrate the shock proofing and waterproof quality of its pieces. They include a dolphin swimming with a Timex Waterproof attached to a baton, a torture test of a ladies' watch inside a dishwasher (natch), and Mickey Mantle attaching a Timex watch to a baseball bat and hitting a pitch.

It's really a cool site (not mine):
