George Daniels is among the greatest watchmakers of the 20th century. Tireless researcher, he distinguished himself with his wide historical knowledge about the watchmaking of the 18th and 19th centuries. He was especially captivated by the work of Abraham-Louis Breguet to whom he consecrated a book simply named “The Art of Breguet”. He reflects on the history of this Swiss watchmaking master and provides a detailed study of Breguet’s horological philosophy, illustrated by more than a hundred drawings and numerous pictures. This new edition, only available in English, integrates a foreword by Emmanuel Breguet, Vice President of the eponymous House, historian and direct descendant of Abraham-Louis Breguet.
The book is available worldwide from March 4, 2021, and can be ordered via several online shops including Amazon, or directly from Bloomsbury Publishing.
