The bold colours and paint stroke rainbow style of this little cheerful watch takes us instantly back to the good old times when Ronald Reagan was president and we watched Ghostbusters on VHS. Do you remember the outrageous ski outfits or Jane Fonda? It doesn't get more 1980's than this!
This watch is not a "retro" imitation - it is the real thing. It is vintage but has been sitting on a shelf somewhere, unused in its box. NOS means New Old Stock and it is just what this watch is. It is in perfect unworn condition.
It comes in the original retail box and the original instructions booklet. The battery still has power and the watch is running fine. Normal procedure for quartz watches is to have them packed for sale with the crown pulled out to the setting position to stop the watch from ticking and draining the battery.
Lorus as a brand is around still today. It is made by Seiko and targets the entry-level watch buyer with their inexpensive but nice looking quartz watches.
