New from Basel 2003 – Roger W. Smith, British Master Watchmaker
At the AHCI’s stand at the Basel fair, I had the chance to chat with Roger W. Smith, a pleasant young British watchmaker who’s already made some very impressive pieces during his short career. So far he’s made a number or pocket watches, the “No 2” shown below with perpetual calendar and tourbillon, assisted George Daniels with the production of the “Millenium” watch series and now has brought out a rectangular wrist watch under his own name.
I find the visuals of these watches very attractive so without much text, I’ll just post the images from the CD he gave me for your viewing pleasure:
