J W BENSON LONDON TROPICAL SMITHS PATTERN 16J DENNISON AQUATITE WRISTWATCH
J W Benson London Tropical Smiths Everest pattern 16 j Dennison Aquatite wristwatch. With the same sub dial as the watch that went up everest in '53, and with a better than average case condition, a nice investment for anyone collecting the Everest range of Smiths from 1953. Cruciform dustcover, 16 jewel Benson signed upgraded movement and an extra seal underneath the crystal edge, still present in this example. The strap has recently been changed from that showing in the pictures. Runs well. Some dial spotting. The wider cased version with a 33.4mm diameter without the crown.
