Sell Your Roger W. Smith Watch
Roger W. Smith’s journey to becoming a watchmaker has been fuelled by a singular purpose. Today he is the undisputed flag-bearer of British high-end horology. We at A Collected Man are proud to be the only seller of pre-owned Roger W. Smith watches endorsed by the talented watchmaker.
From his workshop on the Isle of Man, Smith produces fewer than 15 watches a year, his craft informed by the 34 skills of the Daniels Method, which he mastered as the only apprentice of Dr George Daniels. Each watch is made entirely in-house and finished in the finest tradition of English watchmaking.
“Horology isn’t about standing still and accepting things as they are. It’s about pushing things forward and making small improvements wherever we can.”
WHY SELL YOUR WATCH WITH US
The partnership between Roger W. Smith and A Collected Man is as long-standing as it is multi-faceted. Over the last ten years we have visited his workshop and spent time discussing and studying his philosophy and dedication to championing British watchmaking.
This has allowed us to become a source of learning for those looking to discover about the independent. It has also allowed us to advise those looking to sell and buy the more than 15 pre-owned pieces we have handled so far, a number that represents the brand’s total output for a year.
We also hold the distinction of achieving record prices for a number of pieces. The latest of these was a unique Series 1, customised by A Collected Man, that fetched a world record price.
A notable sale
This one-of-a-kind Roger Smith Series 1 marked an important milestone in the long-standing relationship between the British watchmaker and A Collected Man. While 18 examples of the Series 1 have been made, this watch was particularly special, wearing a dial with customisations proposed by A Collected Man. When we auctioned it in 2022, it set the world record for a Series 1.
