EVEREST SMITHS 35MM ALL STAINLESS STEEL GENTS ENGLISH WRISTWATCH 1960'S EXCELLENT FULLY OVERHAULED
A superb all steel Smiths Everest wristwatch with the rare all steel case. Fitted with the 19 jewel later movement designed to be easier than the 12 ligne movement to work on, and made with the intention that it could have the automatic winding mechanism added later. In full working order, recently fully overhauled. The two piece case with clip on back is 35mm wide and was sold at the time as water resistant. My personal one of these still is passing waterproof testing even now. As is this one following the overhaul, fitted with a new zrc tan calf strap with a good vintage look strap. This watch is also found with imperial on the dial, which with slight differences is the same basic watch. Nice cream toned dial, original finish, original hands and the rarer coffin batons on the 3 6 9 12 dial. Movement is excellent although the case has not been re-opened for pictures as the watch was waterproofed. Slight case pitting between the lugs, otherwise superb. Not rated for swimming, but should be ok for rain etc. The armoured crystal, crown and case seals have been carefully selected to fit and renewed.
