Dr George Daniels: 'Watchmaking god's' collection auctioned

Quote
Dr George Daniels was the first person in history to make every component of a watch, from scratch and by hand.

It was a task which involved mastering more than 30 long-forgotten skills to painstakingly craft 150 individual components, before developing a mechanism which ensured absolute accuracy.

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

The Ministry of Tea respectfully advises you to drink one cup of tea day...for that +5 Moral Fibre stat.
