George Daniels’ Space Traveller I

Auctioned by Sotheby’s in London for £3.6 million/RM18.4 million.

Setting a world auction record for a timepiece by an independent watchmaker, George Daniels’ legendary Space Traveller I also achieved the highest price for a watch at auction this year. This is the most revered of the 23 pocket watches made by the world-renowned horologist, and is often referred to as ‘the most important English watch of modern times’. Daniels completed the Space Traveller I in 1982 to commemorate the 1969 American moon landing, building it with both solar and sidereal time, equation of time, phases of the moon, and utilising his famous independent double wheel escapement.
