That is actually what is sometimes considered a "doctor's watch."
The design elements usually associated with "doctor's watches" are: red second hand, numbered second scale (often seen with fifth second tick marks,) and a clear uncluttered light colored face.
Aside from the red second hand the face color, these same elements are also used to define "military-style" watches.
That is the reasons I am confusing and asking. A doctor will not wear this cheap! A military is also not really like! But the Arabic numeral luminescent combined with the hands looked like military style.Hi -
I thought that doctor's watches fell into two categories:
a) older vintage wrist watches with seperate dials in an elongated case, upper dial minutes and hours, lower dial seconds. This was sold at least by Gruen and Rolex as doctor's watches (Rolex Prince) and was designed for a doctor's need to see an accurate seconds count, which isn't really possible with most contemporary watches of the time period (1920s-1940s).
b) watches with a pulse scale so that a doctor doesn't have to calculate the proper pulse, just count the number of pulses up to a certain point as the second hand moves across.
Or are you saying that my vintage Stowa with a second hand, light face, numbered scale to 60 with subticks is a doctors's watch? Or my vintage Pobeda as well?
