Novus LED long flat watch

Here we have the piece de resistance of the Novus selection. In my opinion anyway, you might like an another one better. I like this watch because of it’s flat shape and unusual strap. You may think it’s the most hideous garment to grace the planet. I have actually argued about this watch with friends in the past…”it’s ugly”; “it’s not”; “it’s ugly”; “it’s not” etc etc etc. Same story with the Spaceman watches. You love ’em or hate ’em.

Anyhoo, back to this watch – it’s Novus – nearly NOS – from the 70’s; Novus strap; logo on front, too cool – simply too cool. Wear this watch and await the gasps from impressed ladies and jealous punters.

This watch IS a wee bit more expensive than the others, BUT – like all my watches – I aim to keep the prices as cheap as possible, so have a search around on other sites which try and be like mine, and you’ll see this is the cheapest, most reputable, long-standing site on t’internet.

There is a VERY limited supply of this model, so move quickly cause one day they’ll be gone…

NOTE: This watch comes in various variants – some have 1 button, some have 2, doing slightly different tasks because of this, e.g. 2nd time zone. If you prefer a 1 or 2 buttoned model, PLEASE TELL ME before you place an order. Either way, these watches are cool and very very rare. Coming to the end of the stock now, so get in sharpish….

PRICE: £260

Saints above, this is the same as MY watch!!

I’ve been trying to get a new LED system for my watch for about 4 years! Mr Retro World, can you help me??

Well John Boy, I don’t have any spare LED back ends for this particular Novus model at present, although I do have a couple of them from other Novus models… I’m not entirely sure if they will work (depends on the steel shell size).

How about I send you the ones I have and you can test them? If they work, you can keep them for free… if they don’t work, then be a good ol’ Walton and send them back to me in the post… How’s that sound?

Send me an email to with your address, and we’ll get things moving.

By God your Novus WILL live again!!

I see they have different bracelets.. the bracelet in the first picture looks more sleek, and the one in the other pics looks more heavy duty.. Is one of them a replacement?

Hi, no this is the original bracelet. I think there was a variety available when they were first released.

October 12, 2009 at 10:53 pm

Please let me know when they’re in too. Cheers, Graham

Hello Retro Man. Besides being interested in one of these Novus beauties, of course, please would you drop me an email when you receive / if you have received your Spaceman stock.

I have a few things, such as new Audacious straps, and repalcement crystals I hope you might be able to help me out with.

Me again. Just wondering if you have any new LEDs on the horizon? Naturally, this one floats my boat, but *really* I’d be happy with ANY Novus or nice LED.

Came across a Lucerne necklace watch. triangle pendulem shape. It has “modele depose” stamped into the back. What if anything do I really have here?

Hi, Still looking for the Novus watch as listed above.I’m confused as to wether you have watches for sale or are just showing watches with approximate values. Do you have a stock list that is updated so we can see what you may have for sale.
Look forward to a possible stock list with the Novus I’ve been looking for on it.
