Daniels, born in 1926, became famous for creating the co-axial escapement, which as we know has been used by Omega in their highest grade watches since 1999. Further George Daniels was mentor to another British veteran watchmaker, Peter Roberts (now working for Bremont).

Even still at last years SalonQP George Daniels, together with Roger W. Smith, introduced the Co-Axial Anniversary timepiece, made in a limited Edition of 35 pieces in 18ct yellow gold.

Already a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE), Daniels was appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the 2010 New Year Honors.
