George Daniels was an English watchmaker and inventor.
George Daniels (19 August 1926 - 21 October 2011), from the Isle of Man, England, became famous as inventor of the co-axial escapement, which since 1999 is used by Omega, first in a smaller, then in a larger number of high-quality wristwatches. He was one of the few watchmakers who could manufacture a complete watch in full handwork alone.
Besides of his watch enthusiasm he was a motor racer and collector of classic cars, mainly Bentleys.
