Mr H J Shuttleworth 24hr stop watches

I have just purchased from an ebay seller a wonderful pair of Ulysse Nardin timekeepers watches in a custom made timekeepers case . They were bought in 53/54 as I have with them a newspaper cutting and photgragh of the Mr Shuttleworth with them. He was a jeweller and they cost him at that time 350.00 quite an amount in those days and the watches had to go back every two years to Ulysse for servicing. I intend to probably use them for time trials. I was told he timed at most of the citcuits in the 50/60 and 70's, cars, bikes and even planes.
Does anyone have any memories of him.

Coincidence?

Just spotted an obit in an old Autosport magazine.

The entry appeared in October 1982 for a Bill Turner who was an RAC Timekeeper and also a jeweller in Blackburn, Lancs.

More than a coincidence?
