Dilger & Barclay

Dilger & Barclay, Watch and Clock Makers, Jewellers, &c., 135, Eglinton Street.

    The art of the watch and clock maker and jeweller is worthily exemplified by the old-established house of Messrs. Dilger & Barclay, which was founded by them in the same thoroughfare in 1866, and has been located in the present premises for the past fourteen years. The senior partner, Mr. Leopold Dilger, is now the sole proprietor, the business being conducted under the original style as a trade title. The ground-floor of the premises is retained for business purposes, and contains a large front shop and a well-appointed workshop in the rear, the entire establishment being fitted up in a superior style.

    The stock held is large and comprehensive, consisting of a choice selection of handsome French timepieces, clocks, watches, miscellaneous jewellery, silver and electroplate, &c. The workmanship of all the goods on hand, and their general design, are of no mean order. The clocks and timepieces especially are most recherche. The stock includes jewellery of all kinds, beautifully chased and unique in design, and silver plate finished in the best possible style. A special feature of the business is repairing watches, clocks, &c. All purchases made at the establishment are warranted for twelve months exclusive of breakage. All the workmen employed are picked tradesmen, the principal carefully superintending every article made or repaired. The trade is both local and country, and particularly well established.

    Mr. Dilger has had long experience in the various branches of his business, and is of high status in trade circles.
