    Confused **HELP NEEDED to date this watch!**

    I have just picked up this curious Lorus. Quite an unusual shape to the case in my opinion, but I'd love some info about it if anyone can help! Is this a common Lorus? Can anyone date it? Does anyone know the model or anything interesting about it? Would it have been expensive at time of release? Any information at all would be much appreciated! Thank you.

    Welcome to Watchuseek! All I can say is that the watch looks like it's right out of the 1980s (possibly early nineties but that style rapidly disappeared during that decade).

    Lorus (are?) were a brand sold in the UK, I don't know about the rest of the planet. I'm afraid they were aimed at the bottom end of the market. In the 80's I had a weekend job working at the electrical retailer Dixons. For a brief period, we sold Lorus. I agree with Hartmut, the design, the use of gold (tone) and steel dates it to the 1980s.

    It's in good condition for its age.
