Equipment supplier HS Walsh is celebrating receiving a Royal Warrant as a long-standing supplier of ‘horological services’ to Her Majesty the Queen.
HS Walsh began life in 1947 selling watch and clock spares and fitting watch glasses in markets around south London. It has grown to become one of the UK’s leading suppliers to the jewellery and horological trades and serves customers in more than 80 countries.
Royal Warrants can be issued by The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh and The Prince of Wales to businesses that have been supplying goods or services to them for no fewer than five years.
The Queen is certain to have placed numerous orders with HS Walsh over the years, with a collection of hundreds of historic clocks within the Royal Household that require frequent maintenance.
HS Walsh is headquartered in Biggin Hill, Kent, with branches in London’s Hatton Garden and Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
A company spokesman added: “This Royal Warrant is an enormous honour and we are very proud to be part of a very prestigious group of suppliers.”
