Although little has been written about Thomas Hally, he was a maker of both clocks and watches and it would appear that he was well connected to the Scottish aristocracy. Several clocks by Hally are owned by the Duke of Atholl at Blair Castle and a further long case clock by this maker is at the House of the Binns, the seat of the Dalyell family. Unusually the movement has a slide to the bezel at 8 o'clock for selecting the type of repetition required: when the slide is in the upward position, the watch strikes the hours with a double blow and the quarters with a single blow, whilst in the downward position, only the hours are sounded.
