Master watchmaker Roger W. Smith is set to host a presentation at next month’s SalonQP at the Saatchi Gallery in London.
Smith has confirmed that he will be making a presentation, called Against All Odds – Roger Smith’s reflections on the greatest horological battle of the last 250 years, on November 9.
When Dr George Daniels passed away in October 2011, he bequeathed his treasured Riverside Studio to Roger Smith, so that his one and only apprentice could continue his unique work.
A year after painstakingly reconstituting the Isle of Man studio, Smith will reveal some of the fascinating discoveries he has made, which reveal the true magnitude of George Daniels’ struggle to achieve his impossible dream.
Smith is due to speak twice on the Saturday, the first time at 1pm for students only and then again at 3pm for anyone who would like to attend. To reserve a place, click here.
Also confirmed to speak at SalonQP are Schofield’s Giles Ellis, Hoptroff’s Richard Hoptroff and QP contributors Ken Kessler, Simon de Burton and Ian Skellern, who will be leading panel discussions on collecting, car watches and the growing independent sector.
