Daniel Delander was born in 1678 and apprenticed to Charles Halstead in 1692, later transferring to Thomas Tompion. He was Freed in July 1699 but continued his association with Tompion's workshop, quite possibly as a journeyman. When Tompion died in 1713 Delander moved from Devereux Court to premises between the Two Temple Gates in Fleet Street. He died in 1733. Roberts (p.105) states that he was an exceptionally fine and ingenious maker, being famed for his equation work and his duplex escapement. He is also known for his use of shallow arches and unusual spandrels on his dials. Examples of clocks with comparable dials by Delander are illustrated, Robinson p.172, fig, Roberts pp.104-105 and Bruton p.208, fig.184.
