When know-How becomes Art

ANGLAISE STRIKE, REPEAT & MOONPHASE

INTRO


The ultimate carriage clock

Both in England and in France from the middle of the 18th century, the gradual evolution of marine timekeepers (chronometers) could be regarded as a facet in the development of portable clocks designed for journeys. 

A BIT OF HISTORY


Carriage clocks are also known in France as “Officer’s clocks” and the name is based on an historical anecdote. It is said that Napoleon, having almost lost a major battle because one of his officers was late, ordered his military chiefs to carry a carriage clock with them at all times. Orders placed with master clockmakers always included the reference “a clock for an officer” and this brought the name into common parlance.

This Anglaise carriage clock has all the complications that the noble people were wishing to get during the 18th century.
A traditional piece of art created by L'Epée 1839, who wishes to perpetuate the tradition and save its heritage by keeping alive this carriage clock.
