SMITHS ALL STAINLESS STEEL MADE IN ENGLAND WRISTWATCH 1960's NEAR MINT WITH BOX

Regular price £1,250.00 Sale

An all stainless steel Smiths Astral probably from around 1966, fitted with an English Astral grade  caliber 60464e movement, batch or series or inspection number number 36. This is a robustly constructed watch, one of the finest slim watches sold by Smiths with a case diameter a comfortable 34.3mm. This example is very original, even with the old winding crown which is quite a distinctive steel capped item. Fully overhauled to a high standard and keeping excellent time. Some of this particular design when fitted with good seals can still be waterproofed today after 50/60 years. Fitted with a 19mm strap. So nearly mint, but with some marks from case opening, very slight marks on dial. One to be worn. Comes with a smiths box.
