Rollinix Smiths Watches
Your one stop Smiths watch store.
Dedicated to the restoration and sale of the English ‘Smiths Watch’ brand, we are here to promote and sell vintage Smiths watches to fly the flag for the ‘Smiths’ name and keep it in the memory of a new generation.
From Smiths watch sales to repair and services. We are passionate about Smiths!
Established in 2015 and growing from a successful eBay business (see eBay profile Rollinix watches) we market a whole variety of vintage Smiths watches as well as offering advice and repairs/services (please use the contact section in the navigation tab to enquiry about our repair service). Smiths watches have been a part of the British light industry story for much of the 20th century. With models such as the Smiths Astral, Smiths Deluxe and slightly more highbrow Smiths Everest and Imperial, there are Smiths watches for all occasions and to fit all budgets. We are currently have for sale Smiths Everest Automatic watches. Sadly, Smiths watches are no longer a part of the British manufacturing scene but by collecting, restoring and marketing these wonderful, nostalgic time pieces, we hope to continue to bring you an array of Smiths watches for many years to come. Our watches are vintage so please pay careful attention to the pictures and detail. Where restoration is required we do so sympathetically and only using original Smiths watch parts where possible. Our watches are tested for a minimum of 7 days before postage. Being vintage watches there can be up to a +/- 3 minutes time difference over 24 hours but our watches will never exceed this and will often be very accurate. We are lucky to have some wonderful clients without which, this little business would never have flourished. Please see below for a few of our reviews from our loyal customers. Many thanks for visiting our page and we hope you leave with a little timepiece of history!

'J W Benson Smiths Watch Purchase, Andy, I would just like place on record how happy I am with the service that you have provided me with. Your patience and understanding, when I made a mistake with my original purchase, was exceptional. The customer service you provide is only matched by the beautiful watches that you make available to those who want to own apart of our engineering heritage.' - Kindest regards Paul Knappett (18-09-18)
I had decided to send my Smiths Deluxe to Andy as it is a very sentimental piece - my great grandfather's watch - and so I wanted to make sure it was tended to by a specialist. The watch was very well-worn, had missing components, and hadn't been serviced in well over 40 years. Andy did an absolutely stellar job with the watch: fixing all of the issues noted, replacing components (small seconds hand and crystal), and taking the time to ensure that the watch was working well prior to sending back. The communication was first class, and Andy took extra care in answering all of my questions about my watch and Smiths watches generally. Andy’s expertise was very much appreciated - and highly recommended. - J H Short (02-02-2020)
In 2020 my business also featured in the revered 'Outdoor Journal' with my journey here and thoughts on the original battle between Smiths and Rolex to claim who was the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest.
Here at Rollinix-Smiths-Watches we are passionate about the Smiths brand. It has been a long journey...around 20 years since I found my first Smiths Deluxe watch to ‘tinker’ with. They soon became a fascination and now 20 years later, we have become a leading restorer and retailer of original, vintage Smiths watches. Always here for sales, repairs and services or to just answer question about the Smiths brand. Feel free to browse our extensive Smiths range, international buyers welcome too with universal, free shipping on all purchases.
How Did We Do?
I have to admit I was a little nervous about sending my late father's long-service gold watch to someone I'd found on the internet, but my fears were completely unfounded. Andy's service was quick, courteous and thorough. He sent photos to show how things were progressing and was happy to answer questions. The price was about a fifth of what I'd been quoted by a local jeweller, who recommended leaving it well alone since it was still going! I'm very glad I ignored that advice. My father gave me the watch, which he had just received, when I went to university. After Andy's service, I think I can expect another 55 years of service from the watch!
