Smiths Everest A404 (1963)

£ 950

Only 1 piece in stock!

This is a lovely example of one of the iconic Smiths models - the A404. The design is somehow perfectly of it's time - this particular example dates from around 1963. It has Smiths workhorse 1215 movement, with the addition of shock protection.

It's in the Dennison Aquatite case, which is chrome plated with a screw on stainless steel back. The plating is in good condition, which is rare for this model. Dial has developed a lovely warm colour over the years and the overall impression is very elegant.

This model is branded "Everest" - Smiths watches were carried to the summit of Everest by Hilary and Norgay and this model celebrates that, indeed it was presented as being the model that was used by the party although the actual watch (on display in the Science Museum in London) is slightly different.

Fully serviced with a new crystal and strap, the watch is ready to be worn and enjoyed by a new owner.


Case diameter: 33mm
