A very #watchnerd Christmas

Four-Minute Tourbillon
The Daniels four-minute tourbillon (1994)

The pocket watch above was made by Dr George Daniels in 1994, and sold at auction last year. The four-minute tourbillon can be seen, with its distinctive four-armed tourbillon carriage. On the right-hand side is a chronograph mechanism – one that is, I believe, unique to Daniels.

For more information about Dr George Daniels’ work, I warmly suggest Michael Clerizo’s marvellous A Master Watchmaker and his Art (Thames & Hudson).
