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.

Like all Time Factors watches, the case has been designed and manufactured from scratch; stock cases are not used.

The hi-dome acrylic crystal is perfectly shaped and 2.5mm thick; the solid stainless steel bracelet tapers from 22mm to 20mm at the clasp and has half links to ensure adjustment for a perfect fit.

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