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.
