1338 - All in Good Time


Reflections of a Watchmaker - A fascinating life ! - new expanded edition. All in Good Time is the remarkable story of George Daniels (1926-2011), the master craftsman, who was born into poverty but raised himself to become the greatest watchmaker of the twentieth century. Daniels stands alone in modern times as the inventor of the revolutionary co-axial escapement, the first substantial advance in portable mechanical timekeeping over the lever escapement, which has dominated ever since its invention in 1759. This revised edition and expanded edition of the biography also contains a new section that illustrates and discusses over thirty of the pocket and wrist- watches Daniels has made over the years. Witness here the triumph of intelligence, ingenuity, matchless skill and singularity of purpose over the most unpromising of beginnings.
