Best Luxury Craftsmanship: Roger W Smith
Based in the Isle of Man this tiny watchmaker makes each of its exquisite timepieces entirely in the UK and, while it missed out at this year's Grand Prix d’Horlogerie, it is seen as one of the key brands showing what Britain has to offer against its more famous Swiss counterparts. You could opt for on of the classic Series 2 watches, which are undeniably beautiful in their own right, but if you’re looking for true luxury bespoke is the only way to go.
