    Default Smiths aircraft clock

    Check out the EBay auction 260398298756....

    EP!20 dial styling, so a good accessory for the EP120 owner.

    WWII Smiths 8 Day Aircraft Clock Monte Carlo Rally.
    There is a day left and the current bid is at 125.

    I thought about that one but it had cathedral hands. Below are a couple of photos of my EP (with its new "non-fitted" Bremont strap) next to Smiths clocks with "EP hands" in Konrad's new British Military Timepieces book.

    Great pics Jon. The BC range also draws from those cockpit clocks, having alternately coloured numerals...

    Thanks Mat - are you still resisting your inevitable purchase of an EP 120? I thought the new strap might have prompted a few queries from other owners...

    Regards

    Still resisting. Saw another one in Horrids. Was tempted, but until I get a windfall, it's more likely to be the SM500 for now.

    Re the new strap, what new strap?

    Mat,

    It's probably not too clear in the photos but you can just about see that it is not "fitted" to the case, so it is just like the Bremont straps on their other watches. It looks and wears much better, particularly since you can see more of that superb piston-grooved case.

    Regards

    Jon'.

    The EP120 does seem to have a life of its own outside of the Bremont fold doesn't it.....?

    Sorry Jon'

    Missed that in your pictures.

    Does it wear better than the original strap?

    I must admit that I have taken my ALT1-C off it's replacement Toshi vintage leather strap and put it back on to the original Bremont strap. There's something about the way they "pre-curve" the straps that makes them incredibly comfortable...
