Just servicedand In excellent working order, a beautiful Smiths Astral 17 Jewel 32.5mm Gentleman's gold Plated hand winding watch.

The champagne dial is aged as the pictures show, but this early Astral looks good and has real charm! This watch dates from the early 1960's -  British Made at the Smiths Cheltenham Factory . Probably most accurate mechanical watch in the world at the time. - The case is 32.5mmx 40mm. We have renewed the crystal, and fitted a new leather strap .

 

Only after the second world war – did Smiths begin to manufacture wristwatches supported by British government finance to fill the gaping absence of a quality watchmaker in the UK. From 1946-1970 Smiths produced a range of high quality watches from its Cheltenham factory including; the De Luxe, Astral and later the Imperial and Everest ‘range’ of watches. Smiths holds an important part of English horological history as the last English watch company of any size in a world of watches dominated by Swiss, and Japanese manufacturers.
