This famous Sheffield man seems to have been a time served watchmaker and jeweller ( allthough this item was probably made for him by waltham). In later life he became very rich through his many bussinesss ventures including mail order catalogue sales. His name is still remembered with places like Graves park and other places he actually donated or paid towards in the city. There is a growing number of his items being sold on ebay.

My Late maternal Grandfather had a JG Graves Express English Lever pocket watch hall mark date Chester 1900, I acquired two more so that my three sons had one each.
