Enclosed within a prototype 40mm white gold case, this timepiece represents a significant milestone as the first Roger W. Smith watch to be housed in a 40mm case. Its heart beats with a meticulously hand-finished, hand-wound mechanical movement, featuring the latest single-wheel iteration of the Daniels Co-axial escapement and a free-sprung Quadrajust balance, operating at a frequency of 18,000 vibrations per hour. Every detail of this watch exemplifies the meticulous attention to detail and technical expertise that Roger W. Smith is renowned for, making it a true testament to the pinnacle of horological excellence. 

This particular timepiece holds a remarkable place in the legacy of Roger W.

Its significance is further underscored by its distinction as one of only two watches featuring the distinct minute chapter design and one of merely five white gold Open Dials equipped with the revered Mark 1 movement. Delivered in 2010, the 02-OD stands as a significant milestone in horological history, symbolizing the unwavering commitment to innovation and exceptional craftsmanship that defines Roger W. Smith's creations. Its enduring importance solidifies its position as an exceptional and highly sought-after timepiece among collectors and enthusiasts alike.

About the Model

The Dial

The open dial of this timepiece showcases an impeccable level of craftsmanship. It involves the application of diamond paste on tin plates, resulting in surfaces that exude an unparalleled luster. Take a moment to appreciate the winding/setting mechanism, a symphony of meticulously black-polished components, including the yoke, yoke spring, set lever, and intermediate wheel bridges. The 18 karat gold bridges, meticulously crafted with utmost precision, are also adorned with the same black-polished finish. The artistry extends further as the hour/minute ring boasts hand-engraved numerals and meticulously hand-drilled minute-holes. These minute holes and numerals are then delicately filled with rich black lacquer, enhancing the elegance and allure of the overall design.
