All In Good Time

George Daniels, who passed away in October 2011, was without a doubt one of the greatest watchmakers that has ever lived.   And now new additions of his autobiography are finally rolling out.  Amazon sold out pretty quickly, but fortunately I pre-ordered it two years ago and I should get my copy this week!



Also, check out this forthcoming book from Michael Clerizo on Daniels life and work.



Michael Clerizo is the author of this amazing book on the thoughts and work of independent watchmakers.
