Oversize Smiths De Luxe (1954)

£ 950

This is a very rare Smiths model the combination of oversize gold case and black Smiths De Luxe dial is extremely unusual. This particular model isn't featured in Barrie Smith's compendium of vintage Smith's catalogues, possibly this was part of a small test run. A smaller size (33mm) black dialled gold Smiths De Luxe features in the 50s and this watch shares many features of that model.

This watch has the largest size case that Smiths made (actually the case was made for them by MWC, that is British Watchmaking Company). The case is 35mm and feels a good size on the wrist. The case is in good condition, it has some scratches and marks from us, but no serious issues. The case is hallmarked for 1954 (Edinburgh letter 'Y')

The watch has been fully serviced and regulated and the time keeping is good. It is supplied with a new Hirsch leather strap. This is a rare watch and very wearable for the person who cherishes the tradition of the English-made watch.

Case diameter (excluding winding crown): 35mm

Case material: 9 carat gold

Shipping guide for t-shirts

Our t-shirts are printed by us and shipped from our workshop in London. This means if you place an order for both a watch and t-shirt(s), they will be shipped together via an express service. Delivery times for these can be found here.

If you order a t-shirt without a watch, it will be shipped via a Royal Mail tracked service which usually takes a little longer. You can see an estimated timescale when you input your address at the checkout.

Shipping guide for watch straps

If purchased separately from your watch, watch straps will be shipped with Royal Mail 1st Class / International tracked shipping.

This takes 2-14 working days depending on location. You can see a more accurate timescale when you input your address at the checkout.

Please note, during busy sale periods dispatch may take a little longer (this is quite rare).

These delivery times are a guide based on the carriers terms of service, products may, in some unusual cases take longer to arrive. If this happens, please get in touch.
