Smiths Watch BWC Cases
It’s been a busy week as a large repair order of 26 watches from Japan turned up in the workshop! Many aren’t Smiths...but a few are...and this one caught my eyes and helps answer the question from a previous blog.
The cases are more or less identical as are the retainers. The difference is that this watch has a branding...BWC which answers one big question.
I’ve now come across 4 of these watches...3 are in my collection. All have ‘unique’ different dials which are not catalogued in any Smiths book or catalogue that I own. They all have a similar date too...around 1952/1953 when Smiths were transitioning to the ‘Deluxe’ branding.
A fascinating find which opens a Pandora’s box.
