    Gamely propping up the rest of the Smiths product line, this oldie (but not so goody) 33mm Empire, with the 5j RY (?) movement and missing a baton at "6", would have been very much their base model. A 1954 pre-Christmas ad shows it as a Y.351.

    I’m tempted to wonder whether the “Y” prefix signified the joint Smiths/Ingersoll/Vickers factory in Ystradgynlais, Wales and designated the Anglo-Celtic Watch Co Ltd, where production of these cheaper models, marked as “Made in Great Britain” started in 1946. Smiths’ higher quality watches were made in their own factories in England with the dials being marked as such.

    Significant emphasis seems to been placed on staff welfare and healthcare at the Anglo-Celtic works which, having employed nearly 1,500 workers at its peak, ultimately closed in 1980 after apparently producing some 30m watches during its 34-year lifetime.

    Regards.
