Thomas Greaves is recorded as working at 92, High Street, Birmingham from 1770, when he took over the premises from his clockmaker father John, until 1776 when he moved along the road to number 81. He was working here until his death in 1817 at which point his wife Ann continued the business, albeit for only a year. Thomas was the grandson of the clockmaker Thomas Snr, who was in the High Street from circa 1680 until 1715 when his own son, and father of Thomas Jnr, John took over the premises, presumably number 92 as mentioned above.
There are a number of repair marks on the movement:
