Omega mourns the watchmaker Dr. George Daniels

1926-2011


Omega Dr George Daniel


Omega expressed its sadness over the death of Dr. George Daniels who died last October 2st at his home on the Isle of Man. Dr. Daniels had worked in his profession for more than sixty years and in the course of his life was presented with more honours than any other horologist.

George Daniels was a past Master of the Clockmaker’s Company in London and past President of the Horological Institute. He was awarded the Tompion Gold Medal of the Clockmaker’s Company, the Gold Medal of the British Horological Institute, the Gold Medal of the City of London Guild and the Kullberg Medal of the Stockholm Watchmakers’ Guild. In 2010, he was made a CBE by Queen Elizabeth II for his contributions to watchmaking.

Dr. Daniels will always be remembered for his invention of the Co-Axial escapement. He presented it to the world's leading watch companies but only Nicolas Hayek, the late Chairman of the Swatch Group, saw the potential of the invention and in the early nineties acquired the technology and engaged Daniels to work with Omega's technicians.

George Daniels was one of the most important figures in the history of horology and Omega was privileged to work closely with him on industrializing the Co-Axial escapement he was so rightfully proud of. He will be missed by the entire industry and his contributions to watchmaking will never be forgotten.
