Daniel Delander was born in 1678 and first apprenticed in 1692 to Charles Holdstead. He was later transferred to Thomas Tompion and went on to become Tompion’s journeyman working alongside George Graham. His close association with Thomas Tompion led to him inheriting and developing Tompion’s skills, and he invented a duplex escapement. He is recognised as one of the most reputable clockmakers of his period.
