D. D. Palmer, 1864-1875 Dolphis D. Palmer, originally a New York state jeweler, migrated to Waltham, then decided to work out of his house making watches and a few chronometers. He eventually formed a watch school, the Waltham Horological School, but continued to make his 16s SW watch in bithe gilt and nickel from Waltham material incorporating his patented stem mechanism. Many of these watches have odd signatures, some of which were obviously his students.

But just how much secondary support is there is the big question?

Two can set a world's record, but hardly a true market value!

Value of an item is what a willing buyer and seller agree on, privately or in an unreserved auction.
