When Sotheby’s sold the watch collection of the late George Daniels in 2012, the top lot was the Space Travellers Watch. It sold for £1.33m, or US$2.13m, making it by the most expensive George Daniels timepiece, and one of the most valuable English watches ever made. And now just five years later the Space Travellers Watch is once again going under the hammer, with Sotheby’s offering it at its London watch auction on September 19, 2017.
Best known for having invented the frictionless Co-Axial escapement he sold to Omega, George Daniels only finished 27 watches in his lifetime, excluding prototypes and the series of Daniels wristwatches produced by his protege Roger W. Smith.
