Born in Bolton, England in 1970, Roger W Smith was advised by his father to attend the Manchester School of Horology. He met his mentor Dr. George Daniels in 1987 who presented his iconic Space Traveller pocket-watch to the students at that time. Roger then said, "Suddenly, my life's purpose was crystal clear - though its path was less defined." After his encounter with Daniels, Roger aspired to become a watchmaker who would create stunning timepieces; exquisitely built and finely finished using nothing but his bare hands. This would become "The Daniels Method." Smith later became Daniels' only apprentice, and following that he also managed to master 32 trades of British watchmaking to become worthy of collaborating with the great master himself.
