The film detailing the work of George Daniels and Roger Smith is set for a DVD release this month.
David Armstrong’s 67-minute documentary charts Daniels’ rise from poverty to become the world’s greatest living watchmaker and the tenacity of Roger Smith, the only person Daniels would ever take on as an apprentice.
The film, narrated by John Rhys Davis, also features the last interview George Daniels gave, shortly before his death in October 2011.
The Watchmaker’s Apprentice will be released as a Special Collector’s Edition DVD in the UK on September 21 priced at £24.99.
The package, from Bulldog Film Distribution, includes the documentary, bonus features, a soundtrack CD, booklet and postcards. It will also be available via digital distribution.
