About this watch

A watch that continues to rise in value, this is a very fine example of the British Army issue Smiths W10. A classic military watch, which is a really nice daily wear, it has a black dial with a Tritium (luminous) coated hands and markers, which allowed for visibility in the dark – a must in warfare. The ‘T’ within a circle on the dial, denotes the use of Tritium, and the Broad Arrow (or pheon) just above the 6 ‘o’ clock mark was used to identify British military property. The dial numerals are large and clearly-legible, as would be expected in a military watch.

It’s stainless steel case houses the excellent calibre 60466E, 17-jewel, manual movement produced in-house by Smiths.

Fully serviced and regulated, this watch runs really well and keeps excellent time.

A bit of history:

The Smiths W10 was the last wristwatch to be manufactured in the UK and issued to the British army. Smith’s supplied the watches to the British army from 1967-1970.
