$2,521.00 USD

A Superb Smiths W10 British Military Issue Watch, Issued in 1969 and Boasting a Beautiful Dial with Evenly Aged Lume. 

Smiths was the last surviving British watch company to manufacture watches entirely in the UK. From the 1950s until the company closed in the 1970s, Smiths supplied watches to the Ministry of Defence. The W10 marked military watches are the most iconic of all the Smiths military range, and were issued from 1967 until the company closed.  

What's On Offer

This example of the Smiths W10 is in superb condition. The 36mm stainless steel case has curved lugs with solid fixed bars, all in excellent shape. Domed Plexiglass encapsulates the rich black dial which boasts beautifully aged lume on both the hour plots and on the original sword hands, the buttery colour really adds warmth. The Arabic numerals are still crisp as is the outer minute track, and the broad arrow sits at the 6 o’clock position signifying its Military DNA, a central seconds hand completes the dial. The caseback is engraved with W10/6645-99-961-4045 and 2048/69. A fantastic example with bags of historical relevance and a worthy addition to any collection. The watch has been recently serviced by master watchmaker and comes with a 12 months warranty for peace of mind.
