Is this the seventies-est watch on the internet?

    I'm coming to grips with the fact that I really like orange in watches, which is not something I knew about myself. Not only re: the OP watch in this thread, but I also seriously toyed with the TH Aquaracer before realizing I didn't actually care for the watch itself so much as the color profile. That may be some vestigial 70s thing itself, as I feel like orange is the color most associated with that decade. (If you don't believe me, just google "1970s color.")

    Quite agree - orange is definitely a Seventies colour. I especially like three cars from early that decade, which, finished in the hue, are to me very emblematic of the era. (BMW offered two versions: Colorado- a bit too yellow, and, fantastically intense, Inka.)

    And probably my favourite watch is my Speedy 3570.40, partly due I think to the orange points of detail and hence my choice of Hirsch strap on which to wear it. Still hanker after that Lanco though!

    Actually a rotating tachymeter bezel is a great design for a watch with no chrono

    Thought I’d join the party with some cheap&cheerful 70s ludicrousness.

    Just dusted this one off from the purgatory drawer and threw it on a BOR- I kind of actually like it now!

    I just can't help myself sometimes. Saw this on eBay after posting about another one earlier in the thread. I pinged the guy who seems to be an authority on these things (https://www.facebook.com/70sWatchesGallery/) and he reckoned it all checks out... even said there aren't many Fortis ones left.
