    Question Help identifying old watch

    I'm trying to identify a watch that was gifted to me in the late 80's or early 90's and at that time it was new. I no longer have it however I would like to know what it was. Attached is the only image I have of it from an old photograph. Below is what I know about the watch, any help identifying it would be greatly appreciated.

    Divers watch
    Quartz
    White face
    Black bezel (bezel rotated in both directions, it was a smooth rotation without the ratchet clicks)
    Metal grey band
    The hands and hour markings glowed in the dark
    I think it had a complication of day and date, or it may have just been date
    Believe it was Citizen or Seiko

    Good luck. Search google images. There is no way anyone can make out of the picture

    From memory the bezel only had numbers, there wasn't any notches to indicate each minute position.

    I've asked some family members if they happen to have a clearer image of it in one of there photos, still waiting to see if there are any leads there. If I see it I would recognize so I'll try the image search.

    remembering the bezel could help narrow/pin point the search as there are different type of bezels (diver/countdown, gmt, tachymeter, etc)

    it'll definitely help narrow the search, see if you can remember what the numbers are (and what you used it for),

    if you're not familiar with bezel numbers/functions, here's a couple of link to he

    After some help from a family member I am confident it was in fact a Lorus Sports. I’m trying to locate catalogues from that era for the lorus range but as yet have not been able to find any.
