The 150 year history of what we know today as the Timex brand is packed full of fascination and innovation.  The original company Waterbury Watch made pocket watches since the 1880s in the USA and by the 1900s nearly one in three Americans was wearing one, from Mark Twain to miners.  During WWI the American army had them re-tool the pocket watch into a ‘wrist watch’ for soldiers and thereafter civilians took them up in huge numbers.   

Today, Timex know that your wrist tells more than the time and their range includes watches with compasses, temperature data, tide data and many other really useful features for the outdoor adventurer.  Countryside Ski & Climb is pleased to stock Timex because they are still made true to their core principles of robustness, practicality, innovation and great value


Products coming soon

The Countryside Ski & Climb team are in the process of adding new products to our website every day. But in the true spirit of the outdoors adding products is very much like climbing a mountain, it's further than it looks, it's higher than it looks and it's harder than it looks.

We will be adding to each of the categories and brands on a regular basis but if there is something you specifically want in the mean time, please either visit our comprehensively stocked Stevenage Old Town store, telephone or send us an email with your query. We will endeavour to respond immediately.
