Time Factors Smiths PRS25 Everest Expedition, New and Unworn with Box & Papers Issued New in December 2020

TimeFactors is a British watch brand founded by Eddie Platts. The brand is known for producing watches with a focus on quality, design, and historical inspiration. TimeFactors has been well-regarded in the watch enthusiast community for offering timepieces that often pay homage to vintage military and tool watches.

Watches by Time Factors are highly sought after due to their limited run but unbelievable quality and price point. Most watches you can find on the Time Factors website become available only on certain Sundays of each month in very limited numbers making it very hard to get hands-on with these amazing watches. This has caused the demand to skyrocket and Time Factors have become an Icon in the Mircrobrand watch world.

Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay made the first successful ascent of Mount Everest on May 29, 1953. They wore watches made by the original Smiths, a British watch and clock manufacturer.

What's on Offer

Made by Time Factors, this watch is a beautifully done rendition of the Smiths A454 worn by Edmund Hillary during his expedition. the original protective packaging can be seen still on the watch in photos as it would when bought new.

It features a lovely Cream Dial with black track markers and accents of sharp red complimenting it excellently. The Syringe hands are heat-treated blue steel with integrated X1-C3 Superluminova.

The brushed stainless steel case sits at a nice 36mm attached to a brushed finished bracelet which tapers from 20mm to 16mm. The Bracelet screws are not fully tightened to allow for easy first-time adjustment. After sizing please tighten and we suggest using a removable thread lock such as Loctite Blue 242 to secure the screws, or we can size it for you before delivery.

This watch houses the precise Miyosa 9039 24-jewel automatic movement.

These Everest Expeditions are no longer available on the Time Factors website and don't often appear on the pre-owned market so don't delay if this is one you are wanting for your collection.
