Smiths PRS-25
Almost everyone is familiar with the name of one of the watches which was worn by Hillary and Tensing when they reached the summit of Everest in 1953 but fewer people realise that the other watch was a Smiths, as shown in the 1953 advert below.

Of course, the Smiths of 2011 looks nothing like the Smiths of 1953 but it is a reminder that a British watch accompanied Sir Edmund Hillary on that historic climb.

The PRS-25 is the first Time Factors watch to use the new Miyota 9015 automatic movement. Miyota is a division of Citizen, the largest manufacturer of movements in the world and the 9015 has been compared most favourably with the ETA2892-2.

This new version has been uprated with a hi-dome sapphire crystal, replacing the acrylic crystal used in the previous version, the bracelet has been improved and is now fitted with an adjustable clasp which has four adjustments to ensure a perfect fit.   The dial has been slightly changed with shorter and thinner hash markers and the "Everest" is now in dark grey instead of black.   Although these changes are small, it makes the dial look more balanced.

Supplied in a single-watch travelling case with 24 months guarantee.
