* George Daniels, 19 August 1926 - 21 October 2011, was considered by many to be a true genius and certainly the greatest horologist of his time.
In a distinguished career spanning six decades, he is most famous for his invention of the co-axial escapement, adopted by Omega for use in their premium watches in 1999.
Daniels took evening classes in horology at City, then the Northampton Institute, and believed that his time as a student directly impacted upon his outstanding success as a horologist.
