Roger W Smith OBE is without doubt the World’s greatest watchmaker and if you don’t know his story and his journey through the decades then it’s time for an education, and Adrian from Bark & Jack is here to deliver it in style.
I’ve seen many, many videos over the years about George Daniels, Roger Smith, Isle of Man watchmaking and the co-axial escapement but this short, sharp video captures everything you need for a great into to the man and the history.
So check it out and keep your eyes peeled for part 2 coming soon!
Got into the horological hobby only a couple of short years ago; but got, as us Scots like to say, “baw deep” pretty quickly. Thanks to buying a lemon of a Rolex he spent hours researching why his watch wasn’t working and along the way gained an interest in what makes them tick. He now runs the Scottish Watches website and keeps cohort Rick in check on the twice weekly Scottish Watches podcast.
