    Fabulous. And that early Smiths is *really* early. I'm thinking this must be a 1940s model. Shall look it up in me book.

    Ok, the good book shows it in a 1947 advert.

    Most cool.

    Re: Show off your Smiths!

    Hi all , a quick question for the experts among you (Ric + Kath) a friend of mine just give this to me , to have a play with and i thought you would perhaps know if its possible to repair or it's only good for spares. So far i have worked out it's a W10 of 69 vintage i think , the crown is missing (you don't say) and in the pic of the movement i think there is a spring showing (marked with a yellow arrow) .With a gentle shake the second hand will move for 5-6 secs . The lume is missing on the minute hand. I would be grateful for any advise you can give. DW.Name:  P1080371 1 (400x300).jpg

    Those W10s are incredibly value if you can get it working!

    Yeah, a nice but battered W10. Kath'll be along any moment, but she has a lovely W10 herself. Rescue that poor watch from penury! Ric

    For an investigative repair job a good guy would be Christian Dannemann:

    Thanks for that Der Amf. Also after a little bit of research it seems the bit I highlighted with a yellow arrow should be like that. DW.
