This book is the autobiography of George Daniels, acclaimed horologist and author of Watchmaking. In it, he discusses his humble upbringing and background, his first encounters with watches and time pieces, his passionate and persistent love of automobiles, and his technical contributions to modern horology, first and foremost amongst these, perhaps, his development of the co-axial escapement. All in Good Time provides an intimate and in-depth look at the life of one of Britain’s most important watchmakers.

Book Description Philip Wilson Publishers Ltd, United Kingdom, 2017. Hardback. Condition: New. Revised edition. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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. Daniels s love of mechanics embraced not only the minute, however - he was also a passionate collector and driver of historic motorcars. This revised and expanded edition of his autobiography also contains a new section that illustrates and discusses over thirty of the pocket and wrist-watches Daniels himself made over the years. Witness here the triumph of intelligence, ingenuity, matchless skill and singularity of purpose over the most unpromising of beginnings. Seller Inventory # AA79780856676802
