DELUXE SMITHS HORN LUG 12.15 WRISTWATCH C 1953 OVERHAULED
a Smiths Deluxe early horn lug wristwatch with a three piece case in chrome and steel. this is the type of bezel that is fitted with a special fit crystal that has a recessed edge that can not be bought anymore, so the existing one is still in place. the movement is a 12.15 in good order having been recently overhauled. The case width is about 31mm. the original dimpled crown is still on the watch. this is the same pattern dial as the A404 Everest watch in the waterproof case . The polished and brushed chome finish is in slightly better than average condition. The dial shows evenly aged patina which is quite attractive. the 16mm watch strap is a black box calf leather with biocomfort back by zrc. 2 year warranty. Not waterproof in any way. Produced in 1952 so probably sold 52/53. The movement has survived surprisingly well for a clip on back cased watch from that period.
