    Wow!, Do you think Eddie can do this one?

    I just saw this Smiths Empire watch on Ebay. I wonder if Eddie could do this watch with its applied indices?

    I hope the link works. I don't know how to post jpegs on this forum.

    You can say that again. It was probably one of their worst watches.

    There really is something about a steel case with white or cream dial and gold indices and hands

    The AS looks lovely but its way to big for my taste

    A 35/36mm Smiths vintage style manual wind would be ideal

    As long as there weren't 10 different threads and hundreds of posts about the hands that is
    ''I must acknowledge, once and for all, that the
    purpose of diplomacy is to prolong a crisis"

    My problem with Smiths is that their case designs were a bit... vanilla. Capable but boring.

    Unfortunately.
    Rolex blah blah, Rolex.
