Roger Smith to speak at George Daniels’ auction


Watchmaker Roger W. Smith is set to host a presentation at next month’s auction of George Daniels’ horological collection at Sotheby’s in London.

He has now confirmed that he will be making a presentation, called Reflections on a Watchmaking Pioneer, at Sotheby’s on the afternoon of November 5.

Smith said: “George had a long-standing relationship with Sotheby’s and had been a horological consultant to their watch department from 1969 until well into his later years.

“This sale was planned with Sotheby’s many years before his passing in October 2011 and is a natural conclusion to that long relationship. Over the years, Sotheby’s made several visits to George’s residence to both catalogue and research his work to gain a full understanding of it.”

The auction will take place at 2.30pm on November 6. All the proceeds from this once-in-a-lifetime sale will go to The George Daniels Educational Trust.
