Rolex, Patek Philippe have got nothing on this. They can’t compete with the level of watchmaking that goes into every Roger Smith watch. We hosted a special event where we sat down to talk to the man himself, master watchmaker Roger Smith OBE.

Greetings from Panama. What a privilege to be able to watch this interview
So, this is the face that belongs to the hands. He smiles too.
I didn't think I would watch the whole thing, but this was very interesting. It's such a nice change of pace to hear a humble expert discuss their field.
Great video. Nice to finally put a face to that microphone
Ironically the time seems to fly when I watch Roger Smith speak. Spellbinding.
It feels so strange hearing a voice that's so familiar but seeing it come from a face that I've never seen before.
Being British, I could not be prouder to see that the legacy of horological excellence and innovation continues to this day. Living near Hull, I revel in delight knowing sea-fairing accuracy and visual data displays stem from the genius of local men. The intellect behind countless scientific and engineering marvels developed on our small isles has truly shaped the world, lest we never forget those pioneers and strive like them, to make the world a better place.
10:35 so the parts that he doesn't make are a lot of the parts that bring the watch to life. I'm quite surprised by this.
If he can't afford the watches, but he sells the watches then he should sell them for less so he can afford one ???? what a brilliant man though.
I'm lucky enough to own a Seamaster. I feel that I have a bit of George Daniels brilliance in my watch and ergo a bit of Roger W Smith brilliance.
That was absolutely brilliant.
Did I miss the watch?
Rolex is riding on its hype but that only last so long. There are so many brands better in looks and movement.
The greatest living watchmaker talking for an hour (see the full talk under a properly respectful title – to Mr Smith and your audience), and you still felt it necessary to use Rolex and PP as clickbait in the title.
This is truly the dumbest timeline.
I could not find where to sign up for the NY event. Pls clarify
Northern Ireland watchmakers not welcome?
was not expecting you to look like that
Holy crapoly! Andrew, from your "hands and voice" videos and your knowledge, I thought (unfortunately?) that you were much older than you apparently are! Thanks for all the consumable content!
True. But he’s wearing a Rolex as he speaks to you! ???? I could listen to Roger all day & deeply admire his skill & perfectionism. I do feel his watch dial designs are too traditional though. Whilst I respect the pieces hugely, I’m not taken by the Roman numerals & case/lug shape, as example. No doubting the mastery of the movement underneath though! ????????
Listening to a living legend never gets old.
Fantastic content, and wow Roger Smith !!
