    Quite a surprise. I believe Timex makes watches in Germany again...the TX series? I recall reading (a handful of years back) they were designing very accurate movements in Pforzheim.

    Ah, as it happens, there is a Wiki:

    Hi Henry!


    Timex is a surprise, indeed.
    I think everybody in Germany, who is old enough, remembers
    their famous TV-commercials, always ending with a fist with a Timex
    smashing a glass pane, to show how robust the are.

    Agreed on the dial style--and I cannot see a crown, so I wonder if there is no stem, making the movement a little loose in the case.
    I will answer this with a no, there is nothing wrong with the stem/crown...
