The "Military Watch Co" also do some quite nice traditional analogue watches with a smaller face (About the same size I think as the Timex Marlin)   - their reproduction "Vietnam " watch goes for about 35 new on ebay -you can get it in black as well as the traditional green, and put it on a nice "James Bond" or similar stripey Nato strap. Their "MWC G10" is similar, but with a date, and goes for about 70

Thanks for the heads-up, Cord, but they're really not my thing, too casual/sporty to fit the bill. I prefer dressier watches with white, not embellished dials and discreet hands.

To me , it looks like a low cost watch . And ironically , l was in a jewellers today(not to buy a watch of course) and a watch with a gold face caught my eye . On close inspection it turned out to be a wee ,cheap Seconda but l have to say it certainly looked the part . .

Maybe this one, Simon? It definitely looks the part, though a 40mm case is a bit on the big side for me:

That one is similar but this one had a gold face Sydney.  Hard to believe it was a Seconda

One way to get "Retro" looking watches for almost nothing is the "Eagle Moss Military Watch Collection". It was one of those "First issue half price magazine with a collectable watch" things which the full subscription ends up costing hundreds of pounds. The watches look nice from a distance, but are very lightweight etc up close

They often appear on Ebay at 4-99 a pop too !
