Thread: Help me identify a watch.....

  1. #1

    Help me identify a watch.....

    I spotted a watch on someone's wrist the other day that was intriguing. Not sure I liked it, but it was interesting... I suspect it might have been a Rado, but let's see if anyone can help from my dodgy description.

    It looks like it came from the 70s
    It's rectangular
    The rectangular face contains three dials. One takes up half the face, the other two take up the other half.
    Two images keep coming to mind; a 1970s teasmade and the dashboard of a Rover SD1. It's that kinda look.

    So, any ideas?

    would need more to go on there are a lot of 70's chronos out there colour of dial maybe did you see an emblem ?

    Didn't see an emblem. It was low light, but I think it was stainless or gold plated on a bracelet...

    got something niggling right at the back of my mind I would say if it was the one am thinking it had the smaller dials side by side at the top and the bottom half took up the rest of the third dial and they was slightly oval ish rectangles as they was not straight lines more slightly curve in the centre if I remember right it just hiding half remember in the back of my mind it was that teasmaid quote trigger something but just can't seem to bring it in to focus but would deffo say it was 70's could try sicura to as well as rado possible early Seiko chrono

    Just found this. It could be it. I thought the dials were all analogue, but this jumped out and struck a cord... Think it was this.. Maybe....

    Definitely more distinct dials, like the Omega...
