Twenty-eight years after its first publication, the best-selling "Watchmaking" continues to inspire and encourage the art of watchmaking, especially among new generations of enthusiasts. As a supreme master of his art, George Daniels' advice is constantly sought by both students and watch repairers, his understanding of the problems that can beset the would-be watchmaker, especially in an age of mass production, and his expert knowledge of the history of watchmaking being second to none. Here, the making of the precision timekeeper is described step by step and illustrated at each stage with line drawings and brief explanatory captions. The text is easy to follow and care has been taken to avoid complicated technical descriptions. As Daniels is particularly interested in the development of the escapement - many are described in this book, several of his own design - the reader is encouraged to explore this aspect of watchmaking in even greater detail.This classic handbook still remains indispensable to generations of watchmakers and repairers, and also provides a fascinating insight to the enthusiast and watch-collector who, until its publication, had often been able only to admire the superb craftsmanship of a fine watch without understanding how it works.

    David, 10 februari 2014

    George Daniels är en av få personer som tillfört traditionellt urmakeri patenterad ny teknologi som förbättrar verkets precision, och vars handtillverkade ur går för miljoner. Boken är en detaljerad manual som visar hur man tillverkar enskilda delar till ett komplett ur, från stänger, kuggar, urtavlor, boetter - i stort sett allt från ax till limpa. Boken visar dessutom vilka verktyg som behövs. Är du tekniskt fascinerad är den en guldgruva. Vill du bli verklig urmakare, snarare än urmekanike... Läs hela recensionen

"A new edition of one of the definitive texts on horology... this book continues to inspire and encourage the art of watchmaking, especially among new generations of enthusiasts and Daniels' advice is constantly sought by both student and watch repairers, his understanding of the problems that can beset the would-be watchmaker, especially in an age of mass production, and his expert knowledge of the history of watchmaking being second to none... the text is easy to follow and care has been taken to avoid complicated technical descriptions." - "QP Magazine" "Dr Daniels...stated his principal aim in writing this book as being 'to inspire and encourage the art of watchmaking', an aim which the book meets very well indeed. [...] Some of the photographs of Daniels' watches and their components are new and all are stunning; those of his workshop inspire awe and the drawings, which are mainly by David Penney, are superb. [...] Over the last thirty years this book has been steadily improved. This latest edition is the best yet and I have no hesitation in recommending it." - Colin Fergusson MBHI, "Horological" 'This classic handbook will be indispensable to generations of watchmakers and repairers, who will not only be able to admire the superb craftsmanship of a fine watch but will also learn and understand the mechanics and make-up of this art form.' - "International Watch Magazine"
