Deluxe Smiths A452 Everest pattern explorers model wristwatch c1955. One of the series of watches marketed as part of the then Everest range of wristwatches before Smiths signed Everest on the dial. Note that the earlier Smiths had an all red hand which was later substituted by the trademark red tipped ones. Chromed brass top with a steel screw in back, retaining all original parts apart from the crystal and strap seal and crown. The 16mm strap is a honey vegetable tanned leather ZRC cowhide one which is lightly padded and will soften easily with use. The case diameter is about 33mm. This example is in average worn condition, wear to the case, dial toned with some small marks from repairing, however it is fully overhauled and in a presentation package. Dial has a photographic shadow possibly caused by the camera reflecting in the curved crystal which is not present on the watch. Worth noting that this is a specially cut crystal.
