J. H. Allison John H. Allison, an Englishman, according to Crossman was a self taught watchmaker. First notes of Crossman claim he made an English type watch (ebausch?). Later his few chronometers appear similar to those of the Hoyt/Smith/Freeport plate design without the lever escapement in Detroit. These watches are possibly of Swiss ebausch import. Nicely finished nickel and damaskeened, these are a very difficult watch to locate. Allison later went on to the employment of a watch repair company in Illinois.
