Robert Roskell - Liverpool.

Robert Roskell, along with Peter Litherland the inventor of the rack lever, was Liverpool’s most famous manufacturer of top quality rack-lever watches since first invented in 1791. Watch collectors and enthusiasts around the world consider Robert Roskell pocket watches the 'holy grail' of watch collecting and recognise him as one of the greatest watchmakers of the early 19th century.

In 1843, the Roskell business merged into Hunt & Roskell. This company became well known for producing some of the finest watches and jewellery and were also the London agents for Breguet. The company was purchased in 1889 by J.W. Bensen, also renowned top-quality watch and clock makers.
