Smiths De Luxe

I can finally hold my head up and say with all honesty that I have a British watch. Not the e-bay found military Smiths I post every once and a while but a Smiths De Luxe, which I believe is the Sir Edmund Hilary “Everest” watch. Much more original, and cheaper, than the obvious Rolex alternative. This watch also features a Dennison case, a brand due to be re-launched next month.

So far I am pleased with my find. I am also surprised, that despite having a 33mm case, it does not appear minute on my wrist.

I will keep you updated.
