In 1937 ACWEECO released the Smethurst High-light meter. It was the first meter to measure incident light. This construction was patented in 1937 by a british photographer Philip C. Smethurst. Mine has a patent number, but the first meters have only "prov. patent" marking.

My Smethurst came from Sheffield, UK, in slightly worn condition.
