I have been rather proudly wearing my grandfather's watch today, for the first time in far too long. It had been in need of some serious repairs and not many people seemed to have the know how / parts, however Ryte Time Watch Repairs (found them through this forum) have done a lovely job!



A Smiths Everest, my Grandfather did security for them after he retired from the Met in the 1950's and 60's. I would guess that this is a late 50's watch but TBH i don't know much about it. My father also has a 18 carat gold Smiths Imperial that he was given on his 21st (1961)

Little things like i do like that it says "Made in England" at the bottom of the dial!

That is a handsome, well-proportioned watch. Very nice.

many thanks, evidently Grandad had taste! hehe

Its certainly strange fealing to wear next to my bigger daily pieces.

Makes for a nice change though!

You get a lot of divers watches in those cases, some made by some well known names. I've got a Zenith Defy and a Chronosport in similar cases with variations of the bezel. I've also seen Heuer quartz divers amongst the many other makes that use these cases.
