GARRARD SMITHS 18 JEWEL ENGLISH HIGH GRADE WRISTWATCH C1955. With its 31.5mm case this is a typical Smiths watch form the mid fifties. In good all round condition, fully serviced and with our usual two year warranty. SCW made case, formerly BWC. Edinburgh assay office, 9 coat gold there piece case with clip on back. There are some small marks on the movement but I thought it best to leave the movement as original as possible. This features the extra end stone caps on the escape wheel and the centre jewel. Also the balance has a Breguet overcool hairspring. The actual caliber designation for this movement is 0421. Here is an example of a high grade Smiths English wristwatch that demonstrates the use of shock proofing earlier than the normal run of watches, seen originally as an unnecessary expense which was not needed when case internal protection was fitted instead. Strap fitting is 16mm, although the previous owner has crammed a 17mm one on.
