History:

Robert Roskell is a very famous pocket watch maker who started creating these masterpieces in Liverpool, England in 1798. Eventually, he moved to London to continue on in his watch making career with the firm which, in 1843, was renamed Hunt & Roskell with Robert Roskell as the new partner. This company produced some of the finest watches and jewelry during its time in operation. The company was purchased in 1889 by J.W. Bensen, but he kept the designer watches knockoff company name, probably because the name Roskell was already established and well respected.

The “golden years” of Robert Roskell’s pocket watch making designer watches wholesale was obviously from 1798 through about 1840, when he completed most of his work and became known for his superior craftsmanship and skill. After 1843, Robert’s time was consumed with his work as partner with the new company. However, watch enthusiasts across the world seek out the beautiful sterling silver or gold cased designer pocket watches with the signature “rack and lever” movement that Robert Roskell was famous for. Seeing the movement signed with “Robert Roskell” can send shivers of excitement up the spine of any collector, in particular if the piece is of exceptional and working quality. The amazing thing about these timepieces that are aged well over 100 years old is that they were created by men who were essentially artists, without the aid of machinery or electricity
