Roger Smith to create new wristwatches for Dr Daniels
18
Jan '10
It is with great pleasure that George Daniels and Roger Smith announce a new collaboration for 2010, celebrating 35 years of the Daniels co-axial escapement, with the creation of a new series of Daniels' wristwatches. These limited edition timepieces will utilise a new English co-axial calibre created by Dr. Daniels and will be executed by Roger Smith using combined workshop facilities, making them direct extensions of this great horological master's creative concepts.

The Daniels name is well known to watch collectors and serious connoisseurs of horology everywhere as a legendary pioneer. In the 1970's his single-handed revival of the hand made mechanical watch, at a time when quartz watches were de rigueur, was historic. Even in the 21st century, with the advent and popularity of large numbers of mechanical, mass-produced watches, his ideas and standpoints are as poignant and applicable as ever.

Adding to this already exceptional background, he is the author and co-author of several major horological treatises, creator of a series of unique pocket and wristwatch designs and inventor of the first truly new watch escapement of the 20th century. Without question, Daniels' horological efforts encompass several lifetimes of achievement. Recognised as a master watchmaker, he has been awarded a C.B.E. in the 2010 Queen's New Year's Honours list for his services to horology.

The collaboration between these two men is a natural one, due to the fact that Roger Smith was the only apprentice of George Daniels. Already long established as an independent watchmaker of renown in the same tradition as Dr. Daniels, Roger Smith is able to understand the concepts, principles and designs of Daniels' visionary creations like no other, having studied and worked with him closely through the course of many years on the Isle of Man. It is for this reason that George Daniels is pleased to entrust the execution of his designs and ideas for this new series of watches to the Roger W. Smith workshop.
