Smiths ceased production of domestic clocks in 1979 so it a little surprising to find Smiths clocks with later dates

So far, I have come across two such oddities.

diana There are in existence carriage style clocks intended as souvenirs for the wedding of Diana and Prince Charles which did not take place until 1981. probably a case of the company stockpiling to meet expected demand!

kellog There is also a promotional alarm clock for Kellogs Rice Krispies with the Smiths name on the dial and a date of 1982.

Would this perhaps have been a pre-existing contract which Smiths were unable to break so that they had the clocks made elsewhere?.
