Came back from a trip away to find this watch waiting for me!
Thought it would make a good companion for my Military Smiths!
I see it as the unlumed version of the Everest Deluxe - same 15J movement, sub seconds and case design! I found this interesting thread on another forum that includes a picture of the actual (supposedly) watch worn by Hillary....

I assume mine also dates to a similar pariod - early/mid 50s.... but without any way to date the watch (unless someone can inform me), I cant be certain of its age!

As for the case.... its in surprisingly good condition for chrome plated... only wear is to the rear of the lugs!

Any thoughts or info on this would be much appreciated??
