Rodger Smith Watches - British made

At the end of July I had the special pleasure of spending a couple hours with Roger Smith as he swooped into Los Angeles to deliver the commissioned and bespoke Big Date Tourbillon that had been four years in the making.
I have a special interest in independent watchmakers and Roger Smith, who hails from England and still lives there–the Isle of Man, to be specific–happens to be one of whom I’m particularly fond. Most watchmakers do their schooling and then go to work for the brands to cut their teeth. Smith has never worked for a brand. He had a very personal watch education from the master of independent watchmaking, George Daniels. If you’re not familiar with Dr. George Daniels, he practically gave birth to the independent watchmaking movement. He’s known for his exquisite one-off pocket watches as well as his invention of the co-axial escapement. Yes, the one used by Omega.

With the lilt of Irish laughter
