Item Description:-


Exceptional, Outstanding Condition vintage solid 9ct gold gentleman's hand-wound wristwatch dated to 1961, which may be of special interest to collectors or to people who simply like to own the best of the best. Complete with its original Smiths presentation case / box.


DIAL: Superb original rare black version dial signed 'Smiths Imperial' with the company crown logo, 19 Jewels Shockproof and the words 'Made in England' at the bottom. Gold hour markers with matching hands, the dial is in super condition considering that it is 51 years old.


CASE: Solid 9ct Gold case, which is clearly hallmarked with crisp and clear English hallmark. The diameter of case, excluding winding crown is 32.8mm (33.9mm with crown) 40.8mm length and 16mm between the lugs. Excellent condition, considering it’s with only light signs of wear, one of the best cases in 9ct gold that we have had on a watch in a long time!


MOVEMENT: MINT, hand-wound 19 Jewels, cal 0104 movement. The movement is in good to excellent working order and keeping time at time of listing. The movement is in super clean / mint condition and produces a wonderful ticking beat that oozes class.


STRAP: A new high quality leather strap and gold coloured buckle which complements the watch nicely.


In summary: A very rare and exceptional timepiece for the discerning collector who appreciates the understated elegance of the classic vintage watch!! This particular Smiths timepiece probably the finest example in solid 9ct gold that you will find on eBay, plus being fully boxed which is also very rare!!
