Summary

Master watch designer and inventor George Daniels was regarded as the finest exponent of his craft in the world. Over the course of his career he laboriously constructed just 25 watches using antiquated tools, creating almost every component by hand. Experts appreciate these watches as milestones in the art of watchmaking, and the timepieces now change hands for sums of up to 200,000. This volume features comprehensive images of all of the unique watches Daniels produced in his career. Meticulous photography captures not only each masterpieces distinctive face, but also the detail behind the dial and the intricate workings that power the watch itself. Rare and previously unseen images from Danielss own archive of photographs and working drawings are also reproduced. Michael Clerizo worked closely with George Daniels in the preparation of this book, the craftsman recounting his life and career over their innumerable conversations at his home on the Isle of Man. That ample biography is also contained herein, ensuring that the book is a fitting and authentic tribute to the greatest watchmaker of the twentieth century.
