As Dr George Daniels’ understudy, the innovator of the co-pivotal escapement, Dr Roger W. Smith OBE (or essentially Roger Smith) is today viewed as the most noticeable expert watchmaker in the UK. In the event that you are into watches, there’s zero chance that this name is obscure to you. What’s more, today, you can enlist for a free talk by Mr Smith, in London. To put it plainly, something to raise your watch game to a higher level.
Roger W. Smith’s horological vocation started at 16 years old at the Manchester School of Horology. During the course, Dr George Daniels (1926 – 2011), was a meeting speaker and propelled Roger’s aspiration to hand-make watches. After ultimately working close by Dr Daniels to make the Millennium Series of watches, Roger set up his own studio in the Isle of Man in 2001. He currently makes the absolute most attractive watches of Great Britain, combining an exemplary look, an undeniable degree of mechanical excellence and eminent hand-made dials and movements.
On Wednesday 27th November, Roger W. Smith will be giving a discussion at City University, London entitled “Development of the Mechanical Wristwatch”. In this talk, he will examine “developments in present day mechanical wristwatches and will suggest that, in late many years, this has prompted a relapse, rather than a movement of the functional characteristics of watches. Dr Smith will share his own perceptions from creating mechanical wristwatches and offer his own answers for improving life span and performance“.
Note that admission to this talk is free, yet puts should be reserved ahead of time. An incredible open door for anybody in London. You can enroll here, at City University’s site .
