... return to Timex -
These two watches had a new feature: a calendar!
This watch was sold until 1978. After that there weren't any "Girl Scout" watches until 1993, through the Brownies continued through 1983.
The watch face of the Timex Brownie watch appears unchanged from 1973 through 1983 (the last year it was offered.) The only things to have changed were the strap in 1983, and of course, the price, which reached a high in 1981 and then lowers by 1983.
The image on the face of the watch is etched on the caseback.
