C8 Corvette Finally Arrived

It's been a very long wait, and I am not talking about a Roger Smith or even a Simplicity. The reason the USA is short on small change is I have been saving all nickels, dimes and quarters in a jar for three years, ever since the mid-engine Corvette seeme

Perfection!

I have just received a personal email from Roger Smith who confirms your figure of 100 watches and I had totally forgotten that apart from his own watches, Roger had been busy making the Daniels Anniversary watches. It was a nice touch for Roger to write

JLC and IWC Mark XI, a perfect duo

I certainly understand your well put reflections regarding these 2 pieces. In a interview with Roger Smith he mentioned, that the famed watchmaker George Daniels had a JLC mark XI as one of his few personal wristwatches. I don't think he modified it with

A Time For Transparency

The different approach of how something made. The example of Roger Smith, for me it is hand made. For an other watch enthusiast, lover, fan, etc it could it not hand made. So what do a craftsman write on a dial? Hand made, Swiss made, Made in England, Han

Perfection!

Wow, 20 years ago I had not even heard of Roger Smith. I think I was wearing an Alain Silberstein then Do take a look at Christian Lass. He could be the next big thing! The CP30 in 38mm Sublime movement

Perfection!

Beauty as they say is in the eyes of the beholder. I have been blessed with quite a number of beautiful watches over the years and decided to reward myself with a retirement gift when I placed an order for a RW Smith Series 2 in rose gold in November 2016

Excited to be working with a young English Watchmaker

I thought I’d share a picture of a dial just received for a new watch being made for me by a talented young English watchmaker James Palmer whom I came across in 2020. He worked as a watchmaker for Roger Smith on the Isle of Man and is a great guy with a
