Description:
This is one of the best example of a Smiths British Military issued watch we have seen. It dates from 1968 and was one of the last mechanical winding (as opposed to quartz) watch supplied to the British armed forces and in fact these watches were the last mass produced mechanical watches made in England. The watch is engraved ‘W10 on the case-back, indicating it was issued to the British Army in 1968. The gilded and signed calibre 115 movement has 17 jewels and hacking centre seconds. It has a gilt finish and the classic exposed winding wheels and click spring; like all British military watches from this period it has a “hack” seconds facility, operated by a spring touching on the balance wheel. The gloss black dial has white painted full Arabic numerals with a “railway lines” outer seconds track, heavy luminous batons at each quarter hour mark and smaller luminous dots for the remainder. The dial is signed “Smiths” at the top and below that is the circled T (standing for Tritium) and there is the British broad arrow mark above the 6. We have fitted a brand new British G10 (NATO) strap. If you are looking for one of these classic British military watches this is the best example you will find in superb original condition. Comes (as do all our watches) with our free 12 months Warranty.
