Hi All

Came across this the other day ,it's a bit long but well worth the watch ,to me it is akin to the great art of Horology ,something the Swiss do exceptionally well.

Cheers OZ :cigar:

I'll really be impressed when he builds a tiny Lamborghini to put it in.

That guy could not possibly be married, if I tried to do something like that I would cop so much grief. :rolleyes:

Nice one Oz.

I listened to a fascinating programme about George Daniels the other week.

He invented coaxial displacement system used by omega, and made his watches entirely himself, entirely by hand...which is a hell of a feat.

He won every possible acolade in horology, and would only make you a watch if he liked you...excellent.He must have had brilliant eyes, and a steady hand.

I couldn't stop watching. That was just amazing. What a work of art. And correct me if I'm wrong, that's actually a mini combustible engine from what I see. He didn't just create the parts to move when driven by a drill on the driveshaft. That sucker looks like it's burning fuel to me. surprised.gif

That's probably more powerful than the 4 cylinder in my 95 accord. Cool video. The whole time watching it I was thinking that I can't even fix my fishing reel.

Reminds me of an old Top Gear episode but with a fully working vehicle (you only need a person small enough) ...

On a side note, many Swiss watch makers now have their parts made in Asia. It's then assembled in Switzerland.

Impressive.... amazing... thanks for posting OZ...

Nonetheless, it appears that it was done by a very patient Spanish-speaking bloke (likely a Spaniard).
