Famous Smiths Watch

Today, in the workshop, there was a Smiths Deluxe A365 that needed a service ready for marketing. I don’t come across too many of these. They were mostly made in the 1960s.

These also happen to be one of the few watches that I have identified in a film! In this case...on the wrist of Bryan Forbes in the 1960 film, ‘The League of Gentlemen’.

I was in touch with Bryan’s daughter, Emma, who confirmed that her dad was a Smiths fan and often wore the watch on set, though she didn’t know what had happened to the watch since.

Has anyone else spotted a Smiths watch in a film?
