Gender: Men's
Watchband: Leather Brand: Smith & Sekonda
Casing: Gold & Gold Plating Model: Smiths Everest & Sekonda
Watchband Material: Leather

This lot consists of two vintage watches, both pre-owned by my late great uncle. The first is a Smiths Everest Automatic, 25 jewels shatterproof watch and the second is a USSR Sekonda 17 jewels wind up watch. These items have been relisted as my 3 yr old son got hold of them and has now caused a hairline crack in the top corner of the glass on the face of the Smiths Everest watch ( see picture 7). Those of you out there that had orginally taken interest in the auction will know that to be true as the orginal pictures showed no damage. In an effort to see if I coud get it replaced I rushed it to my local jewellers this morning and he has said that the bezel could be replaced but that he has nothing like it at the moment. He did however confirm that the casing is solid gold and that the Sekonda has a gold plated and steel case, which I never realised before. The Smiths Everest comes with its orginal box, certificate and packaging and has 25 Jewels. It is engraved on the back with ' In appreciation of long service, C R Smith 1941-1967 DECCA', as it was a retirement gift to my uncle. The Sekonda USSR has 17 Jewels. Both watches have scuff marks consistent with their age and the fact they have been worn. There is no foxing or spots .The Smiths Everest watch is in working order and the Sekonda does work but then stops after a few hours and then starts working again so I think it could do with a service.

Those that collect watches will know that these are a good buy and that the bezel can be changed and that it would be easier for a collector than me to source. I listed them because I don't wear the watches and they are just laying around.......I'm just gutted my three year old found them which is even more reason to get them to a good home and quick. Rest assured I have now locked them in my wardrobe!!!! I have been completely honest and if there are any further questions I will do my best to help as sale is final.

Payment can be via paypal or personal cheque. Please pay promptly. I wrap well and always obtain proof of postage but cannot be held liable for any damage or loss once the watches are out of my hands. For safety you might want to come and collect them but I will send these first class recorded mail.

Thankyou for looking. See also my other items offered for sale.
