Not only have I never had one of these, I cannot find a reference to it in any of my books. A truely rare 1950s Smiths commercial with a copper case. An absolute wonder.
The deep case has been cleaned and hand-polished and has a lovely warm shine leaving much of the original patina. There is a dent to the case at 6 o’clock. The case has not been lacquered, so it will slowly mellow. The dial is not damaged, but shows overall foxing. The logo and numerals remain crisp. There is just a little pitting to the classic Smiths hands. The original glass shows very minor wear commensurate with wear.
Overall dia 34cm, depth 7.5cm.
Fitted with a high quality battery quartz mechanism that is fully guaranteed for twelve months. Requires one AA battery which is supplied with the clock.
