This is the first new "Smiths" watch to be manufactured since 1979 and continues the tradition of making quality watches at an affordable price. It utilises a case design used by many manufacturers over the last 60 years and is variously described as "Deco" or "Bauhaus".
The Smiths Big Date has been designed to be highly legible and suitable for both casual and formal wear. The full-luminous dial with contrasting black hands ensures that the watch is instantly readable in all lighting conditions. Water resistance to 50 metres means you don't have to worry about getting it wet and the sapphire crystal is highly scratch-resistant. The Swiss quartz movement is reliable and with its big date, there is no more squinting to read the date.
The PRS-27 is guaranteed for two years and will be supplied with one red and one black clip-on leather strap. Supplied in a single watch zipper travelling case.
