TO ALL OUR CUSTOMERS AND FRIENDS AROUND THE WORLD.
S. Smith & Sons Ltd was founded by Samuel Smith in London in 1851.
Samuel Smith was born in Ilford, Essex in 1827 and opened a watch & clock makers shop in Newington Causeway, London in 1851. Samuel’s eldest son, also named Samuel was born in 1851 and followed his father into the business. Samuel senior died on 4th February 1875, aged 48 and his son took over the company. It expanded rapidly, opening showrooms at The Strand and later at Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly. Smith & Sons also owned factories in Clerkenwell, London and Bienne, Switzerland. They had many notable customers, became watchmakers to the Admiralty, supplier of explorers watches to the Royal Geographical Society and produced a range of high quality timepieces including certified chronometers, chronographs and repeaters.
In 1899, Samuel formed the private company, S. Smith & Son Ltd, and transferred his business to it. At this time, they started manufacturing motor clocks and in 1904 produced the first British odometer and speedometer. They added many other motoring accessories to their range and in July 1914 formed S. Smith & Sons (Motor Accessories) Ltd.
