Evolution as a collector ..

Fortunately for me though, the only hype Rolex that really appeals to me is the modern sub. And even then, I’m almost certain I’ll find a fault with it once on my wrist. Goes for others as well. I’ve tried on APs, Pateks but never really had a hankering f

Roger Smith

I received an email from this morning telling me he opened my watch and is replacing my escapement wheel with his Newley upgrade version along with the lever which has benefitted its efficiency. In addition the watch will be completely serviced and back t

A couple of photos of my Josh Shapiro

The beautiful sculpted hands: And the hidden screw system (you can see one above the "12") that affixes the chapter ring to the dial. This is very difficult to do, requiring insane tolerances, and the only other maker that I know of who does this is Roger

Roger Smith - I don't get it

Which also raises another important point. Roger has significantly modified and improved the coaxial escapement over the years. His current movement requires tolerances that are likely much too great for "traditional" lithes. The use of CNC machines is no

Roger Smith - I don't get it

I don't really understand Roger Smith. The watches seem to be pretty basic and even sloppy relative to something like Gauthier, Dufour, etc... in the same price range? quillandpad.com The error mentioned in this article for example, just seems outrigh

Roger Smith

As stated by others, seeing how many watches are made per year, you would obviously buy a piece of history! Which is an achievement in itself. I find it remarkable that Roger Smith and a very few others make everything in house and nearly all by hand! To

Roger Smith

I don’t have the purchasing power of some on this forum. That doesn’t mean I forego historical significance or provenance when I rummage around for nice watches. On the contrary, I couple my interest in both qualities with a search for value. Lo and behol

Roger Smith

I’m considering placing my name on the list for one of Rogers’ watches, specifically for the series 2. The wait now is many years. And the price is very significant, but these aren’t getting cheaper. I’d like to canvas the group and hear some opinions. I

A question for the mods

screw down case is possible but you need a sealant to avoid any water /air seepage...which means entry of any thing that will affect movement, lubricants etc as Patrick mentioned on the comment, sometimes it is a process choice either due to case design o

Is this the pinnacle of hand finishing & hand made watchmaking?

Your comments are very appropriate. English watchmaking style of George Daniels meant more of frosted/gilded bridges and plates and rather austere angles and modest bevelling. Whilst I agree that this is not inferior in any way, I feel Daniels’ watches de
