Description: A very rare ships chronometer with 49h power reserve Case: mahogany box, brass inlays, inlaid bone signature shield, brass handles, lid and glass, spring suspensioned brass gimbals and bowl, three-body. Dial: silvered, signed, numbered, radial Roman hours at "9", central Arabic minutes, large auxiliary seconds at "3", blued Breguet hands. Movm.: brass movement, conical pillars, chain/fusee, spring detent escapement, heavy chronometer balance with 2 weights and 2 screws, freesprung blued helical balance spring, chatoned diamond endstone on balance. Simon Vissière au Hâvre Together with Rodanet, Gannery, Leclerq and F.A. Lange, Vissière is counted among the students of Joseph Winnerl, Paris. The very design of the chronometer shows the influence of this master craftsman and the school derived from Breguet. The clear-cut design without unnecessary embellishment and the finely gold-plated full plate catch the eye immediately. The chronometer and its fine original box are in original condition and can be considered a typical example of the customised French high quality chronometers of the Breguet-Winnerl range. To be noted also is the spring suspension typical for Vissière, effected in a U-shape by two bronze/brass springs
