Wonder who made that? I do like a nice watch. Wonder if it's as reliable as the cars? :)

 

Can you not go and get a new battery installed? Any jeweller should be able to do it and it would sell an awful lot easier if it was working. Of course, it may be a real rarity that Lotus aficionados drool over and there will be people bidding madly regardless.

 

Best of luck with the sale.

The watch is exactly the same as a Ford RS one my pal has. A solid thing, a ton is a good price.

I have a Lotus glasses case, but no trace of the actual bins, also a Jaguar case with the old glasses are kicking around probably as my prescription has been the same for a few years, and I only upgrade due to scratches and so on.

 

None of them were much different from other brands, but I like my cars so that's what sealed the deals :-D

Handles not used on later Marinas, possible when they changed to the curved dash - the one facing away from the driver! They were used in Robin Reliants* too!

* sometimes mistakenly called Reliant Robins on beige themed car forums!

The interior handles  were called "remote control" locks.  This meant that you used them to lock your keys in the car.

 

The Marina exterior handles were used by the Lotus Elite, Eclat, Excel and Esprit.

Some bunch of jokers called Time UK, apparently.  The watch was allegedly designed by some slaphead dude at Lotus.
