 A Superb Smiths WW2 MKII Raf 8-Day Clock With MIlitary Markings, In working Order and Running Well After A Recent Service. 1941

Smiths Group has its origins in a jewellery shop, S Smith & Sons, which was founded by the watchmaker and businessman Samuel Smith.Supplying its precision watches to various clients, including the Admiralty, the business quickly grew and expanded into a major provider of timepieces and automotive instrumentation.

Smiths later produced instruments for the expanding aviation industry supplying gauges and instruments for cockpits. Smiths was probably best known at the onset of the Second World War as a clockmaker - accounting for 50% of the UK clock market!

What’s On Offer 

These clocks were produced and fitted to Mosquitos, Lancasters, Spitfires and Sunderland planes amongst others. The dial is marked 6A/1104 Mark IIC and 21207/41 indicating manufacture in 1941 -  meaning it is almost sure to have seen live-action during the war. The dial is synonymous with military timepieces, stark black with large Arabic numbers and cathedral hands. The lume on the alternate Arabics has aged to nice chocolate colour along with the remaining lume on the hands which has deteriorated a little more. The dummy hand is in tact and is wound using the central pin on the dial. The time is set using the pin at the bottom right of the clock. The backplate is marked with the AM & crown stamp, denoting it as property of the MoD. 

Recently serviced, this is a really nice piece of military history and would make a unique desk clock or dash clock for military or classic car enthusiasts. A wonderful gift perhaps?
