Smiths "Deluxe" English Made 34mm 17 Jewel Gentleman's Watch

Smiths "Deluxe" English Made 34mm 17 Jewel Gentleman's Watch

£89.00Price

This is a non original "Deluxe" , the original gold case having been scrapped for the gold value - A particularly stupid practice as the watches now exceed the gold price in value!

The watch has the 17 jewel CS17 movement, all works fine, and looks well.

 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.
