The great independent 1:1 luxury replica watches maker Roger Smith has produced just over 100 pieces in his 20-year career. Before striking out on his own, Smith was the apprentice of one of the all-time greats, George Daniels, the father of the coaxial escapement. Smith’s work has long been appreciated by in-the-know collectors, but recently his horological genius has been recognized by a much wider audience. Last May, his Series 1 “Onely Theo Fennell” piece unique shattered all expectations at auction and brought in CHF541,800 without buyer’s premium – blasting past the initial CHF 80,000 estimate.
We’ve talked high quality replica watches with him, we’ve reported on his unique (in the true sense of the word unique) watches, and we’ve even been a fly on the wall of his hallowed workshop on the Isle of Man. While most best US fake watches makers seek to expand their business and come up with new product offerings, Smith’s operation is founded on the exact opposite principles. He’s focused on technical innovation and honing his craft with a very small number of models. Right now, he’s technically not taking any more work.
During Smith’s 2018 Talking Watches episode, you may have noticed an “Ed White” Omega Speedmaster replica watches for sale in his collection with a caliber 321 inside. It’s fitting perfect Swiss made copy watches for a man who’s more concerned with what’s inside than outside, as the caliber 321 is a “world class chronograph movement, and just the way it’s been designed you can tell that the people who designed that movement were watchmakers. They really understood what they were doing,” to use Smith’s words.
Just the other day, Smith posted something to Instagram that serves as an interesting follow-up to his initial praise of the AAA top replica Omega Speedmaster watches.
So it seems Smith’s many-year search for modern Swiss movements fake Omega co-axial-equipped watches ended with the purchase of an Omega Speedmaster Professional Moonwatch ‘Master Chronometer.’ Many people wonder what the greats wear on a daily basis. We know from Smith’s Talking Watches that a Rolex Explorer serves daily duty, but it looks like now the Moon replica watches online wholesale will enter the rotation.
As Smith says, he was already a “fan of the cal. 321 and 861 chronograph movements, the creation of the cal. 3861 which has been re-developed to house the Daniels co-axial escapement just sits well with me.”
Smith’s choice is a fitting tribute to his mentor. At the moment, the wait for one of Smith’s pieces is about five years, but luckily the wait for a modern super clone Omega Speedmaster watches store site is about five minutes, in case you want to channel Smith’s style while you bide your time.
