DELUXE SMITHS GENTS ENGLISH PATTERN GOLD PLATED MODEL A 417 C 1958
DELUXE SMITHS GENTS ENGLISH PATTERN GP MODEL A 417 C 1958. Case diameter 31.8 and is gold plated with a screw in stainless steel back. Dial and hands are excellent. The strap is a long fitting dark brown calf in 16mm. This is an unusual watch in that the lower part of the case is chromed above the back, and this is because for some reason the factory chromed the case on top of the gold plating. This has now been removed from the visible parts. The 27 c.s 17 jewel movement is in excellent working order and shows excellent timekeeping on the timing machine. This is one of the range of watch's in what were advertised as waterproof cases that was sold as a part of the Everest range and this is reflected in the fact that this model or a similar one features in a major Smiths advert from the period. Copies of adverts and catalogue images will be provided as part of your archive and as usual a 2 year warranty. A beautiful watch far better than the images can show.
