“Against all odds” – Roger Smith’s reflections on the greatest horological battle of the last 250 years.
When Dr George Daniels passed away in October 2011, he left a peerless legacy to the world of watch making.
He also bequeathed his treasured Riversdale Studio to Roger Smith, so that his one and only apprentice could continue his unique work.
A year after painstakingly reconstituting the studio, Roger Smith reveals some fascinating discoveries he has made, which reveal the true magnitude of George Daniels’ struggle to achieve his impossible dream.
