Watches by Walsh for HammondHammond 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."
