Footnotes

  • Clutton & Daniels, Clocks & Watches in the Collection of the Worshipful Company of Clockmakers, cat. no.138.

    This is a standard Graham verge movement made a couple of years before he began using his cylinder escapement. The movement was presented to the Clockmakers' Company by Sir John Thorold Bt. in 1818, when it had a non-original enamel dial. It was sold by the Company at Sotheby's 22:10:1981, lot 66, when it was purchased by Martin Ball. Subsequently, Ball located and acquired the original cases and dial of Graham watch number 5045 and fitted his movement 5074 to them.
