Some circumstances will clearly indicate a conflict, and in those cases, an employee should on his own initiative resolve or avoid the conflict. In many cases, it will be difficult to judge whether a conflict prohibited by this policy exists, and employees are encouraged to consult with their supervisors, Human Resources or the Legal Department before taking any action. Particularly difficult questions should always be discussed with the most senior executive responsible for the functional area or business group involved, or the President and CFO of Timex Group in appropriate cases. Employees will be asked from time to time to certify that they have read this policy and are unaware of any conflict or potential conflicts which have not been disclosed in accordance with this policy. Nevertheless, employees should disclose potential conflicts as soon as possible, and not wait for a formal request for certification. 4.

If a decision about a particular

action is not covered specifically by this code or related corporate policies, employees are required to seek guidance from their supervisor or appropriate internal resources, such as the Legal Department, Human resources or Compliance Officers. b) Senior management should be a role-model for these standards by visibly demonstrating support and by regularly encouraging adherence by managers. Managers should ensure all their employees receive guidance, training and communication on ethical behavior and legal compliance relevant to their duties for the Company. c) Failure by any employee to comply with this or any Timex group India Limited policy will subject employees to disciplinary up to and including separation from employment with the Company. d) When in doubt as to the correct action to take, ask the following question.
