A fascinating tale of two remarkable men narrated by John Rhys-Davies. The incredible story of George Daniels’ rise from Dickensian poverty to became the world’s greatest living watchmaker and the one man who, through relentless tenacity, would become accepted as his one and only apprentice: Roger W. Smith. This film is a testimony to their extraordinary craft, touching relationship and unique personalities. A compelling insight into what makes the rarest mechanical artists tick.
