    Default new Facebook group for Smiths watches

    Baden H has set up a new Facebook group for fans and owners of Smiths watches

    It's here:

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/2617...98133079044182

    Let's see your beauties!

    I don't do facebook either.

    Maybe if enough get posted here, then the top google result for "Smiths Facebook" will bring you to this thread.

    Here's my only civilian one.

    I suspect a lot of people who like Smiths are also the same sort of people who don't like / use Facebook!

    Maybe Smiths owners need their own forum like other brands?

    I think a number of us here have interest in Smiths, so what are people's thoughts on adding a Smith sub-forum ?

    There would obviously be some military content, but probably more non-military. The main forum does allow discussion of non-issued watches, but I wouldn't want to see a proliferation of brand sub-forums

    That would be very good, but it would need sub-forums of its own: Blacksmiths, The Smiths (Morrissey & Marr), Schmidts (German Smiths), Silversmiths, Goldsmiths . . . .

    Anyway, yes please!

    A 'flock' of pigs? Should that not be a 'drove' of pigs, or is that too rasher interjection? Oink oink!

    now don't push your luck; those pigs can soon have their wings clipped again!

    do you happen to know of any potential Smiths experts who would perhaps be able to advise?
