2. Timex Watches - Classic TV Commercials

Description: This is a 3 pack of Classic TV Commercials from 1960 for timex watches, which has a slogan - Takes a Licking and Keeps on Ticking. This clip features two different tests for durability and waterproof characteristics. A dolphin named Nellie grabs a baton with the watch on it and jumps over a bunch of hurdles, landing on the watches. And guess what? They are still ticking! Of course, no timex commercial from this era is complete without the great John Cameron Swayze. In addition, there's another timex commercial featuring Mimes, quietly trying to sell their new self-winding watches. These commercials aired on the Frank Sinatra timex Show, Welcome Home Elvis on May 12, 1960.
