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 Road where we manufacture and restore guns today.

Should you purchase the history of your gun:

  • Please send us an enquiry through our contact form or email us at admin@watsonbrosgunmakers.com and include the gun serial number, the name of the gun as well as any other relevant information.
  • 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.

We will respond once our research is completed, usually within two weeks.
