George Daniels needs no introduction. If you agree with this statement, skip to the second paragraph; if you don’t, then here goes. George Daniels is among the all-time greatest talents in watchmaking and a definitive character in modern horology. His pocket- and wristwatches are admired and coveted around the world and his books are must-haves and must-reads to watch lovers and watchmakers around the world. Although Daniels’ work is well-documented and is in ways even carried on by the Isle of Man workshop of Roger Smith, it is still exceedingly rare that we can see the man at work. It was him who shared this video.

After watching it all in one go, feeling like I haven’t blinked once in 29 minutes’ time, I was trying to determine what made this video so special – to my eyes at least, and hopefully yours as well. I concluded that its magic is in the fact that Daniels is seen here at the prime of his watchmaking career: earnest at work and devoted to the last and finest of details; we can first handedly witness 29 minutes of the work ethics and expertise that put Daniels into a league of his own.
