Has anyone heard of the Novice watch brand?
I just found my Uncles old watch that I first got probably in the late 70s or early 80s. Sometime in the 70s (guess) it acquired a leather wrist band that the thin & narrow watch band winds through. Thinking more I'm not sure if it was my Uncles or Grandfathers watch now. No matter.
Anyway, it has a dark face, numerals all round with minute markers between, and a separate seconds dial. The only writing I can see on the face or the bak is the word Novice in script. The numerals are pretty faded, I think they used to be white.
I'm in Australia if that makes a difference, and my Uncle was in the RAN Reserve for years - the watch looks a little like some of the military watches I've seen photos of. Perhaps that is why he picked it.
Anyway, I know it isn't much to go by, I'll post some photos on the weekend.
Thanks in advance.
