My input is a short introduction to the Mudge and Dutton firm which provides for the first time important information about dating their clocks, plus an account of their unique design and production of the finest Georgian watches and clocks: longcase, spring, wall and turret. This includes a previously unrecorded Emery-type lever watch by Matthew Dutton, circa 1800, and a most unusual miniature timepiece by George Graham in an ormolu case, the earliest spring clock to be fitted with his dead-beat escapement, circa 1750.

New and full of information available nowhere else.
