A quintessential early Roger Smith, but a historically important example in that it defined a path the brand was not to follow. That path was referred to as the Edition Series, formulating production with 38mm cases and solid silver dials, but the expected production shrunk to just five examples of each metal color. The present example was delivered in mid 2008, although the case has crisp hallmarks from 2007, a rich patina from oxidization and is stamped number 01. Fitted with a first generation Co-axial Escapement and full accessories it remains a rare and attractive example of Roger Smiths' early work.
