    WRUW December 2017 starts here:



    Welcome my vintage friends, well today we have a military dial 1950's Smith's empire pocket watch I restored myself it's now fully working and is just a great time keeper and a bit of forgotten coolness in this time of the pebble watches, it's nice to feel that bit of history and still fits in my jean hip pocket as it should,

    Have a lovely month ahead guys wishing you all the best..

    As always Ismy

    Quite an excellent beginning to December. Just don't forget a movement shot when time permits!

    That is very nice! I have a generic (DIWEN I believe sold in the Argentine market) with similar markings but only a date at the three. Your MIDO movement looks more sophisticated than my ETA one.

    Thanks!

    Very nice! Approximately what year do you think it was made?
