Smith W10 Army Issue Wristwatch circa 1970

Smith W10 watches were supplied and issued to the British Army.

This watch was part of a contract won by Smiths to supply the Army with General Service Watches, supplied from 1967 until 1970 (this example is from the last year: 1970). It is dated March 1970 to be exact, as indicated by the date code "30" on the movement.

This model is known to be the last all-British military watch.

The W10 is equipped with a Smith 17-jewel hand-wound movement, cal. 60466E.

The 60466E is heavily inspired by the construction of the Jaeger-LeCoultre caliber found in the Mark XI from the late 40s, and also shares a dust cover to protect the caliber from magnetization. The movement has been hacked to military specifications.
