Clerizo Offers A Detailed History Of Daniels' Entire Life, Not Just The Years In Which He Produced His Most Famous Watches
When I first picked up George Daniels, I expected it to be a typical "coffee table book." You know, the kind with tons of huge glossy pictures that, while beautiful, doesn't provide a lot in the substantive content department. I couldn't have been more wrong. While it is certainly packaged beautifully and is of course filled with some on the most spectacular watch photography around, Clerizo's writings are informative, detailed, and powerful.
The story of George Daniels is not a simple one. He was born into a large, extremely poor family, watch rolex replica suffered abuse at the hands of his stepfather, and by all accounts had a very rough first decade or two. He was interested in tinkering and mechanics from a young age, and in an almost too-good-to-be-true fashion, this provided his way out on the environment in which he grew up. "I have never been beaten by my circumstances" is an apt choice for the Introduction's subtitle.

There Is No Shortage Of Amazing Watch Photography
