Just got the legendary book called George Daniels Watchmaking.

This book is going to keep me engrossed for a few years with the massive content.

Imagine if Patek accepted his co-axial tech back then. We would be in a very different habitat now. Too bad they shoved it aside because it was “too thick”. 

When I read this book, I can come to realize why he is the master of masterwatchmakers. FP Journe’s tribute to him was lot 27 of the auction of Daniels pieces. 

Found this pic on Hodinkee.

Great program! [nt]

Someone will write abt him on this forum

A short summary with quotes will work wonders. I wonder if I have the time to research about him sufficiently to do justice to his good work.
I wish someone would write...

Have you also read ...

I really advise you G Daniels autobiography, "all in good time", a great read!

Yes I will

The mechanical nature of the watch allures me. Nowadays, I can start to pinpoint potential flaws in design. Reading more also makes me more careful when wearing these watches, because shock can displace parts.

They say - ignorance is bliss. When the eyes and mind opens, then we see more complex workings.

Have a great week.

Is it a very technical read?
