Having changed premises a number of times, in 1877 the business moved to Cathedral Works, 12 Church Street, Liverpool, with extra workplaces at Piccadilly in London and Toronto in Canada. In 1880, they were listed as “watch and chronometer producers and machine made keyless lever and jewellery retailers” and moreover, “by Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen and HRH the Duke of Edinburgh and the Admiralty”.
