Episode Summary

On top of Series 2, which have becomes Smith's calling card, he will occasionally accept one-off bespoke commission orders. Smith happened to have one such commission with him when we met; a grand date flying tourbillon. This elegant piece is one of the most impressive pieces of hand-made haute horology we've come across. The engraving on the dial, the grand date complication (designed by Smith himself) and of course, the robust flying tourbillon make this watch nothing short of a true sleeper. To the layman, this watch may not look like much (the tourbillon is not visible from the front), but believe us when we tell you this, if you ever see someone wearing an R.W. Smith that looks like this, that man knows his watches. This particular piece took Smith over three years to complete. Bespoke pieces from Smith range between £100,000 and £300,000.moreless
