    No idea. All I can say is that 1968 is fairly early for such a chunky style, so your father must have been a bit of a trendsetter.

    And that clip-on calendar on the strap is really cool.

    Agree. At a glance I would have said 1970's - but without a better picture ID is unlikely. Sorry.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    This thread has a few with a somewhat similar dial - raised markers. The case shape is pretty generic looking.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    So you think those clips are a calendar? That could help the search, thanks

    Not really going to be much help identifying the watch.

    They are not part of the watch or the band, but a separate little clip that fits on the band.

    You can still buy them if you want.

    The strap appears to have holes in it, like a rally style strap, so wonder if it's one of the Tissot PR516 range?????

    That's was my first thought, but the case at the lugs looks wrong. Possibly day/date. Definitely has those clip-on calendar pieces (2 months there). Not part of the strap.
