GRAHAM-LONDON: The origin of GRAHAM-LONDON can be traced back to London watchmaker George Graham (1673-1751), who was responsible for many innovations in timekeeping. He invented a chronograph, a non-beating cylinder escapement, and a mercury pendulum to compensate for temperature differences. He also made the master clock for the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, which defined most of the 18th century. GRAHAM-LONDON was resurrected in 1995 and is now a privately owned Anglo-Swiss watch company that designs and manufactures its own watches at the La Chaux-de-Fonds production facility in Switzerland.
