Smiths for Benson Everest pattern
The watch has a Dennison made Aquatite case, the body is chrome plated with some very small chips, the stainless steel back is in good order. The original dial is in fair condition - the varnish has started to discolour but the overall impression is still very handsome.
The movement has been fully serviced and the timekeeping is excellent. The case has been brushed clean, but as with all out vintage watches we have left it unpolished. The crystal has been replaced and the watch has a new pigskin strap. The watch comes with our standard 12 month guarantee.
A rare chance to acquire one of the iconic Smiths pieces, these really don't come on the market very often. There's a lot of excellent material about the watches the expedition used online, this forum post is a good place to start to learn about this fascinating moment in Smiths history:

Shipping guide for watches:
- FREE DHL Express shipping, 2-4 working days
We now include all duties and taxes in the price of your watch.
This means, the price you pay when you checkout is the full price and you will not have to pay any extra charges.
Shipping guide for straps (unless purchased with a watch):
Free Royal Mail shipping, 3-7 working days (depending on location)
Shipping guide for t-shirts:
All t-shirts on our website are now printed and shipped by an external supplier inside The EU. This means that if you place an order for both a watch and a t-shirt, they will be shipped separately.
Our supplier uses a tracked service for all shipments and this usually takes a little longer than our watches. You can see an estimated timescale when you input your address at the checkout.
These delivery times are a guide based on the DHL and Royal Mail terms of service, products may, in some unusual cases take longer to arrive. If this happens, please get in touch.
