George Daniels wristwatch sets new auction record at $246,000

A rare 18ct yellow gold wristwatch from master horologist George Daniels has seen a new record sum at Bonhams.

George Daniels' watches are among the rarest and most sought after on the market



The watch is now the most valuable example of Daniels' hand-crafted timepieces, selling for £146,500 ($245,701) in the June 11 auction in London.

Daniels (1926-2011) was one of the finest horologists in the world, and one of only a few modern watchmakers who could build a complete watch by hand.

He is well-loved by the watch collecting world, having created the co-axial escapement, a movement that is used in many of today's watches.
