The Roger W. Smith Series 2, Number Seven

The Roger W. Smith Series 2, Number 7, looking great on the wrist.

The Series 2 is Roger Smith’s subsequent watch (as you could presumably theory), and it has nothing to do with that new smartwatch from Apple . This specific Series 2, the seventh created, was completed in 2006 and was important for the main group of nine watches conveyed to customers in 2007. The Series 2 is a 38mm watch with hours, minutes, and auxiliary seconds at six o’clock, in addition to a force save pointer at 10 o’clock. It additionally includes some great guilloché work – Roger’s mark – splendidly featuring center components on the dial. Number seven was sent back to Roger Smith’s atelier quite a while prior, and its co-pivotal escapement has been overhauled and moved up to Roger’s new single wheel design.

This Series 2 comes complete with the first introduction box and papers.

From the back you can see the completely hand-made development at work.

This yellow gold Series 2 is at present being offered by The Watch Xchange in Central London for £150,000 (roughly $183,650 at season of distributing). You can click here for more details.

The Daniels Anniversary, Number Four

The Daniels Anniversary watch, Number Four.

As far as should be obvious, this is the first run through a Daniels Anniversary has at any point been accessible on the web, ever. A restricted version of only 35 pieces, made to praise the 35th anniversary of George Daniels concocting the co-hub escapement, it was planned by Daniels right away before his passing and made by Roger Smith in the Englishman’s atelier. The watch estimates 40mm and is introduced in a 18k yellow gold case, with straight drags and an adjusted ventured bezel. This early model, the fourth in the arrangement, was completed in April 2010 and is one of the not very many endorsed by both Roger Smith and George Daniels himself. The English Master died in 2011, and it’s difficult to exaggerate that it is so unique to have his mark on the papers. Seriously.

This is one of only a couple Anniversary watches to come with Daniels-marked papers.

Asking cost for this incredibly rare watch is £235,000 (around $287,400 at season of distributing) with box and papers. You can click here for more details.
