• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Samuel Hammond and Arthur Paul Walsh

Samuel Hammond

Sam Hammond was a prominent jeweler who was known in New York City as the "Watchmaker to Wall Street." His business was located at 44 Exchange St.

Arthur Paul Walsh

Arthur Paul Walsh was one of the leading makers of fine watches in Britain in the second half of the 19th century. He was located at 5 George Street, Euston Road, London.

Watches by Walsh for Hammond

Hammond sold only high end watches to his prominent New York clients. He purchased goods in both Switzerland and Great Britain and he may have had some work commissioned locally.

The English watches by Walsh may be the highest volume product that he sold and when one is holding a fine Walsh pocket chronometer with a duo-in-uno hairspring it is easy to second the suggestion repeated in Major Chamberlain's book that Walsh was the "Prince of Chronometer Makers."
