The Alliance of British Watch and Clock Makers is giving the world a chance to see behind the scenes at the workshop of Roger W. Smith OBE for the first time.
The global Open Dial event is the first from the Alliance, which was created last year as a commercial trade body that promotes the breadth and depth of watch companies based in the UK.
Roger W. Smith, who began his horological career as an apprentice to the legendary George Daniels and works out of his premises on the Isle of Man, is considered Britain’s greatest living watchmaker, creating around 10 handmade pieces per year.
His tour will include a look around the original George Daniels workshop and people tuning into the virtual Open Dial event will hear stories of his time working with Mr Daniels.
As well as a journey through the past, Mr Smith will give the audience an exclusive look at the movements and watches he is working on now and for the future.
It begins at midday, Eastern, on March 10.
