In The Field: A River Runs Over It



“Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world’s great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time.”
– Norman Maclean’s A River Runs Through It



Our Timex customer service team received an email from a man named Darrell, and his message contained exactly the kind of story we love to hear about.

“My friend and I were trout fishing the Caney Fork River in Tennessee today. I looked down, and in about 2 feet of water laid this watch. I picked it up and couldn’t believe it was still ticking — and right on time!


I was impressed, and just wanted you all to know that your watches do ‘take a licking and keep on ticking!’ I was going to clean it up, but decided I like the story too much yet.”

We like it too! We’ll be in touch with Darrell to expand on his story — watch out here on the Timex Blog as we compile more In the Field stories and interviews.
