Collected this from the repair shop today:
My grandfather bought this 'plated Smiths Astral back in the 60's as a dress watch, when he passed away it lay in my Dad's desk for years as a non-runner until making it to me in May.
Since then it's been in the service shop's backlog awaiting a full service (inc. new glass/mainspring/strap) which was finally completed today.
The years still show but it's certainly a pretty little thing and to be truthful I'm a lot more sentimental about it than I expected to be.
