Watson Bros Gun History

Watson Bros was founded by Thomas Watson in 1875 taking over the premises of Durs Egg. In 1885 Thomas senior handed over the firm to his two sons Arthur and Thomas.

The Watson Bros records go back to 1875 from our original premises in Pall mall all the way through to Towerbridge rd where we manufacture and restore guns today.

Should you be interested in tracing the history of your gun please send us the gun serial number and the name of the gun. Please note that the name of the gun should be either Thomas Watson or Watson Bros. Any other name is not associated with ourselves and we do not hold any records.
