Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: All in Good Time: Reflections of a Watchmaker (Hardcover)
If you are reading this I assume you know who George Daniels is.
An excellent and well written account of the life of a true craftsman and perfectionist. Not a technical work (get `Watchmaking` if thats what you want) but a book that covers his life from his impoverished childhood through to his struggle to get the Co-Axiel escapement accepted by the Swiss watch industry. It covers many other parts of this fascinating mans life such as his interest in classic Bentley motor cars and fondness for bicycles. The later chapters also cover some of the work with Roger Smith.
Anyone with an interest in horology should find this a most interesting read.
