French Early 19th Century Striking & Quarter Repeating Carriage Clock
This rare and exceptional carriage clock dates to the early 19th century and exhibits remarkable complexity. Boasting a quarter-hour striking and repeating mechanism, this impressive clock bears characteristics in the style of famed clockmaker Abraham-Louis Breguet, such as a single spring barrel to drive both gear train mechanisms. Further, the movement features a jeweled platform with club tooth lever escapement, bimetallic temperature compensating balance, and Breguet overcoil hairspring.
Residing in a gilt brass case, cast foliate borders adorn the perimeter, adding an elegant artistic design. The clock face features an exquisite engine-turned dial mask perfectly framing a silvered Roman numeral dial. Adding further complexity is an aperture window below the winding arbor displaying the date.
This strikingly rare carriage clock resides in its original mahogany carrying case and bears a complete restoration and a one-year warranty.
