Offering up my first generation Smiths Everest PRS-25, a forum darling that ranks very high on my all time "value" list. Love it, but have my eye on something new...
Produced as a combined homage to the Smiths and Explorer watches that made the trip up Everest, it is an amazingly comfortable, legible, and thoroughly enjoyable watch to wear. If you've always wondered about the "Explorer attraction" this one will answer your questions!
My favorite part of this watch is the slim, single fold deployant clasp. Current models "upgraded" to a very thick and bulky quick adjust clasp that I think totally ruined the look and comfort of the watch. I also love the acrylic crystal, which was changed to sapphire on the new model. The Gen 1 model has such a perfect vintage feel.

Purchased from Timefactors in 2014, it is in excellent condition overall, with only trivial surface signs of wear. Crown screws down nice and tight. Timekeeping is excellent (It has been running spot on for the last 48 hours on my wrist!).
Original (slight damage on bottom) zippered 2 watch travel case, book, warranty card are included. Bracelet will fit an 8" wrist with ease. I am also including a black NATO strap that is great when you want to change up the look at bit.
These first generation models are becoming increasingly harder to find. Here's your chance to snag one before they all disappear.
