ASTRAL SMITHS MADE IN ENGLAND 9CT GOLD WRISTWATCH IN EXCELLENT CONDITION BOXED
A Smiths Astral wristwatch in a solid London hallmarked 9ct gold two piece case with few blemishes for a vintage watch. Fully serviced and in perfect working order. This is the 60461e caliber Astral sub seconds movement in an SCW case.
Dating from around 1966. Case diameter approximately 33.4mm. Strap size is 17mm, currently fitted with a zrc 733 in 18mm which fits quite well. Some light scratches on the rear central part of the case which could easily be enhanced with a light spin on a lathe.
The Astral movement benefits from having the "put in beat" adjustment of the hairspring stud which makes it far easier for the watchmaker to adjust post servicing, but causes errors from diy owners thinking they are regulating the watch.
Original Smiths red box, un-engraved case back all in all in excellent near mint condition.
