  1. People really shouldn’t be so judgemental nowadays. A great grandfather that I didn’t know and therefore have no real sentimentality to the piece and unfortunately, neither of my daughters are interested in the watch so would rather it go to someone who appreciates it rather than it being sat I n a drawer for the next 30 years.
  2. That’s really helpful - thank you. I estimated he would’ve received it mid to late 60’s so might not be far off. I think I’ll leave the back on - would hate to damage it. Thanks very much for your help
  3. Thanks Karrusel - I will give that a go tomorrow and post pics. There is a stamp at the side of the gold watch face that I think says 325. I’ve just had a look and I wouldn’t have a clue how to remove that case back and I don’t want to damage it - I doubt the back has ever been off for years and years
  4. Hi I'm new here so please be kind! I have a Smiths watch that I've just listed on Ebay and within about 10 mins, my phone was going berserk with offers, messages etc. Obviously, I know nothing about watches and thought it was just a simple watch and after spending a couple of hours on the internet, I came across this site and have now done abit of research (should've done the research before listing it obiously!). Does anyone know, out of curiosity, what year these watches were given to British Rail employees? I know it's abit of a 'how long is a piece of string' question but I was trying to remember when my Great Grandad was given it and thought maybe about the mid 60's but after doing abit of research, think it may have been a little bit earlier. I've tried looking at old Smiths catalogues and have tried a few things but saw a few on here were quite knowledgeable so wondered if anyone could shed any light on it? I'll try and post a pic! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/293631570432?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649
