    Thought you guys may be interested to see these two watches in the Clockmaker's Museum which is inside the UK Science Museum. One is a limited edition De Ville. The other is a 'Millennium' by George Daniels and Omega. I couldn't get any better pix as they were in a glass cabinet and only had my phone. I saw them at the weekend and thought you might enjoy seeing them.

    The Millennium on the right is a beauty, could you tell what size the case diameter was?

    Thanks for posting these. One of favourite places -- spent quite a while there recently researching a book, but somehow missed these Omegas among the incredible range of pieces in the Guild's collection. There's tons of Daniels-related material there (including the Space Traveler II now, I guess).

    There's this great Talking Watches episode with Roger Smith discussing George Daniels and his co-axial escapement. This instalment of TW is much more technical than usual—no celebrity talking about Daytonas here! Highly recommended for a quick introduction on the innovation of co-axial escapements ::book::

    I just watched the episode, I know nothing of the technical side of watches, so it was very interesting and I learnt a lot!
