    Default A few early Smiths

    Picked these up, and about 8 more, at an auction in the States. Perhaps some of my favourite of Smiths watches, I love the early 12.15's. Have over the last 3 years diverted my collecting away from military and onto the more, well back then they were, more reasonable priced watches. Will post a few of my more rarer Smiths, when I get round to shooting them. Enjoy. Regards Simon

    A nice early collection - one for each day of the week, starting with a Sunday lie-in (top left)! Well done.
    Do you happen to know their serial numbers - any Axxx (PM if you prefer for security)

    Are the hands on the top row, second from left original? They're fantastic.

    Yep think the hands are original, that one had a horrible redial that I had a replacement face for, and yep luckily out of 14 there was two A series.

    Sorry rodabod, read your email incorrectly, thought you' were on about the top left, the one you refer too is hopefully all original. A lovely rose gold plated one and the one that I have worn for the last few days...
