    FS: Vintage British 60s & 70s Smiths and Timex watches

    Hi All,

    I have to let these four vintage British watches move on to a better life with new owners who'll find the time to wear them. There's nothing wrong with these watches, it's simply that this bloke with only two wrists has no business trying to own and rotate forty watches. And anyway my wife won't stand for it any longer.

    I'll pay the shipping of the watches from Switzerland which costs me about £15 for Economy Registered (2-4 weeks depending if the destination is Europe or North America). if you want an upgrade to Priority Registered (from a couple of days within Europe to about a week to North America) then it's an extra £10. Yep, shipping from Swiss Post's expensive.

    There may be further taxes and duties to pay as (a) Switzerland is not in the EU and (b) neither is the USA or Canada (yet). But then again I always value such items "sensitively" on the outside label.

    FOR SALE ONLY

    EUROPE, USA OR CANADA ONLY

    NO RETURNS

    Note all prices are in British Pounds (GBP).

    ITEM 1 - 34mm Smiths Pembroke - £125 (shipped Economy Registered)

    ITEM 2 - 33mm Smiths Crosshairs - £125 (shipped Economy Registered)

    ITEM 3 - 30mm Timex GB Military/Army - £125 (shipped Economy Registered)

    ITEM 4 - 30mm Timex GB Silver Dial - £50 (shipped Economy Registered)

    Thank you for looking!

    Ric

    ITEM 3 - 30mm Timex GB Military/Army - £125 (shipped Economy Registered)

    ================================================== ============
    ITEM 4 - 30mm Timex GB Silver Dial - £50 (shipped Economy Registered)

    Good condition for its age, totally original, dial serial number is 1177 25*6 but the decade digit is obscured. Still my interpretation is that this is a 1976 watch, *cracked* acryllic crystal (hence the price, needs a bit of love), brown strap, accurate.

    Condition: vintage
    Movement: manual wind
    Crystal: acrylic (cracked)
    Case: steel case
    Dimensions: 30mm
    Caseback: click-in, steel
    Crown: normal
    Strap/bracelet: brown leather
    WR: unknown
