If they have replaced that many watches in that short period, I'm going to say that it isn't the watch.
Timex watches are equipped with some of the largest and strongest batteries in the industry and have some of the best reserve potentials. Have you ever replaced a battery and did it make a difference?
Do you use a magnetic bracelet or work around strong magnetic fields - either of which can deplete a battery - generally in about four months? If so, put the bracelet and watch on opposite wrists. This is usually not a problem with a digital watch. I suspect it's because the magnet makes the analog movement work harder and depletes the battery faster.
And some people just can't wear a certain watch. My mother is one of them. There is something electrical or magnetic about my mother that keeps her from wearing a mechanical watch. When I was a kid, the only watch she could wear was a green plastic Davy Crockett watch.
And 50 years ago, my left handed brother gave me his hand-me-down Timex when it quit working for him. I put it on my left wrist and got several more years of wear out of the watch. I think he wore out the movement on one side wearing it on his right wrist and I wore out the jewels on the other side wearing it on my left wrist.
