This item has now sold

A Delightful Tropicalised Smiths Chronograph, with a Stunning Reverse Panda Dial, Excellent Condition, c.1960s

The Smiths watch company was founded in 1851 by Samuel Smith - a maker of precision instruments for a number of industrial sectors. Smiths was one of very few companies in the world capable of watch/clock production from scratch.

What's on Offer

The chocolate dial on this Smiths chronograph is the jewel in its crown, a beautiful tropicalised patina gives this watch bags of character and it looks absolutely stunning on the wrist! We have changed the glass for a new old stock one as it was rather grazed but everything else is completely original. The baton markers and two subsidiary dials at 3 & 9 o'clock, 'SMITHS' at 12, Tachymeter and outer track, centre seconds, 17 Jewels Incabloc & T-Swiss Made-T at 6 o'clock are all in great shape, preserved beautifully, and remain lovely and crisp. This watch is the perfect all-rounder carrying the wearer seamlessly to every occasion from everyday wear to more formal functions. It is rare to come across these beauties and especially in such wonderful vintage condition, we have only sold one previously and it sold very quickly - snap it up! This watch has been fully serviced recently so it is running well and keeping good time.
