H. W. BEDFORD AND CO. Limited.
Extraordinary Resolution
At an Extraordinary General Meeting of the above named Company, duly convened, and held at No. 105, Regent-street, London, W., on Friday, the 19th day of July, 1907, the following Extraordinary Resolution was duly passed:-
"That it has been proved to the satisfaction of this Meeting that the Company cannot, by reason of its liabilities, continue its business, and that it is advisable to wind up the same, and accordingly that the Company be wound up voluntarily; and that Athelstan Dangerfield, of 56, Cannon-street, London, E.C., be and he is hereby appointed Liquidator for the purposes of such winding up"
ARTHUR THOMAS BRITTON, Chairman.


Source: The London Gazette - 16th August 1907

According to 'Britten's Old Clocks & Watches and Their Makers' one Alfred Bedford (c.1868-d.1912) was the London representative of the Waltham Watch Company for thirty years. This Alfred Bedford is surely the same Alfred Bedford that registered his marks 'AB' contained within an oblong punch with clipped corners, with the London Assay Office on the 30th August 1876 and 19th September 1876 as a gold case maker of Waltham Buildings, Holborn Circus, London, and is doubtlessly to be identified with the company of H.W. Bedford Co.Ltd.

BRITISH WATCH CASES Ltd.

All examples of assaying noted so far for the British Watch Cases Ltd. company was performed by the Edinburgh Assay Office.

Earliest date noted for this company is 1931. The company appears to have been owned by the Leuba family. They imported Swiss movements and cased them in London. They used the trade name 'TREBEX'.

Noted as an exhibitor at the British Industries Fair of 1937.

They appear to have gone out of business in the late 1960's.

Re: camerer kuss.

The business founded 1780's continues (2020) , proprietor dominic camerer cuss, trading as hallpikes in kensington; he is direct descendant of kuss family who came from rötenhof, farm schonenbach in black forest (in maternal line also spiegelhalter) also continues as jewellers in penzance.

Trev, by the way, hilsers ireland: you refer to phase one and two, not sure but i think at one point one of the shops (galway) may have become cromer (kromer) and then again hilser - but the proprietor was their cousin englebert berkley followed by son (carl) frederick: the cork and bandon shops stayed in the family, today its miriam hilser foley. I add two more complications - during ww1 one of the hilsers joseph i think was interned in ireland - englebert had the misfortune to be interned in germany cos he was naturalised brits.
They - these black forest ones - clocksellers originally.Two generations before engelbert berkley, frederick b was partner in c-kuss.
