Catalogue Note

At the end of the 19th century, S. Smith & Son was the most prominent London maker of complicated watches. Samuel Smith, a jeweller and watchmaker, born in 1851, not only produced watches, but other time pieces such as chronometers. The excellent performance of these chronometers made the firm a supplier to the Admiralty. Shortly after this recognition, the firm developed into a large manufacturing company and remained a family run organization for generations to come.
