Watchmakers commemorated on set of stamps

Tue, 11 Aug 2020


Isle of Man Post Office have issued a set of stamps showcasing three remarkable master watchmakers who are inextricably linked to the Island.

The Isle of Man is a nation regarded by many watchmakers and enthusiasts alike, as the country of origin for some of the finest watches and timepieces in the world.

Three extraordinary talented British master watchmakers, John Harwood, George Daniels and Dr Roger W Smith OBE, who called the Isle of Man their home, and their luxurious timepieces are being displayed on the set of six stamps.

Maxine Cannon, General Manager Isle of Man Stamps & Coins, said: "We are proud to be able to showcase another facet of our Island with this landmark stamp issue. It is incredible to think that some of the horological society's most highly rated master watchmakers were connected to the Isle of Man in such an inextricable way. Our gratitude goes out to Roger W Smith OBE and Alastair Audsley whose contributions and support were invaluable in the creation of this stamp issue."
