Roger W. Smith - New Series 1, 2, 3 and 4

The only maker of entirely British watches and movements, Roger W. Smith has a mission: taking the traditions of British watchmaking into the future.


A disciple of legendary watchmaker George Daniels, Roger W. Smith continues to create fine timepieces adhering to the philosophy of his mentor,  or to the so-called "Daniels Method" requiring him to design and make each watch in its entirety by himself.

Since his first Series 1 timepiece in 2001, the British watchmaker based in the Isle of Man has produced only 80 pieces achieving a major milestone in 2010 with the creation of a single-wheel version of George Daniels’ co-axial escapement.

Over the following years, he kept working on this escapement to bring further improvements to timekeeping. Realising that the new, enhanced escapement would not fit into the existing Series 2 movement, he decided to design a completely new mechanism that could house it.

The resulting Series 1, 2, 3 and 4 watches - presented today at Salon QP (12-14 November) in form of prototypes - represent an important step not only for his brand but more in general for Great Britain as a resurgent centre of excellence for watchmaking.


As Roger Smith explains, all the new pieces are based around the same train of wheels, new escapement, winding and hand-set mechanisms, but with each watch having its own individual base plate to house its particular complication.

The case design has also been reviewed with a diameter of 40 mm for the for the Series 1, 2 and 3 pieces and 41 mm for the Series 4 in order to house the extensive calendar complication.

All in-house movements are manually wound.

Series 1 is a time-only wristwatch displaying hours, minutes and seconds.



Series 2 also displays hours, minutes, and seconds with the addition of a power reserve indicator.



Series 3 displaying hours, minutes, seconds and a retrograde date complication directly inspired to the original Series 1 created in 2001.



The most remarkable creation is without doubts the new Series 4, an instantaneous triple-calendar wristwatch which, despite the numerous information to display, maintains a truly excellent legibility thanks to a split dial and an ingenious travelling date aperture which solves the possible problem of a hand obscuring the day and month indications.

The larger cased Series 4 displays hours, minutes, seconds with date, day, month and phase-of-moon.
