Graham was born to a Quaker family in 1673. His father died when George was very young and he was raised by an older brother. At age 15, he entered a seven-year apprenticeship to a London clockmaker, Henry Aske. The quality of his work as an apprentice caught the attention of the famous Thomas Tompion, considered the father of British watchmaking. Tompion invited Graham to join him when his indenture ended in 1695. Graham did. He began with Tompion as a journeyman for two years, as required by the Clockmakers’ Company, then as Tompion’s protégé, he joined not only the business, but the family, marrying Tompion’s niece.

Tompion, who co-invented the cylinder escapement, died in 1713. His long list of contributions to horology and science (The Encyclopedia Britannica calls him “the man to whom watchmaking owes perhaps most”) earned him the honor of a burial in Westminster Abbey. In his will, he left his business and the bulk of his property to Graham and his wife. The following notice appeared in The London Gazette the week after Tompion’s death:

George Graham, Newphew of the late Mr. Thomas Tompion, who lived with him upwards of seventeen years and managed his trade for several years past, whose name was joined with Mr. Tompion’s for some time before his death, and to whom he left all his stock and work, finished and unfinished, continues to carry on the said trade at the late Dwelling House of said Mr. Tompion at the sign of the Dial and Three Crowns, at the corner of Water Lane, in Fleet Street, London, where all persons may be accommodated as formerly.
