Movm.: solid brass full plate movement, 2 barrels for going and striking train, 1 hammer / 1 bell, precision lever escapement, gridiron pendulum according to Franz Josef Mahler with horizontal compensation weights. Constantin Louis Detouche (1810 - 1889) Constantin Louis Detouche was born in Paris in 1810. After his apprenticeship he opened his own clockmaking business. In addition to clocks he also sold jewellery and instruments. Around 1835 Detouche took on François Jacques de Houdin as workshop supervisor; de Houdin was a renowned clockmaker and expert. The working relationship resulted in a friendship between Constantin Louis Detouche and the Houdin family and Detouche soon met de Houdin's son-in-law Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin. The two men shared a strong interest in a fairly new phenomenon ' the "electricity", which they felt they could use for clocks. Detouche and Houdin worked closely together and in 1856 they obtained a joint patent for an electrical clock. Constantin Louis Detouche received a number of awards; amongst other things he invented a people counter for turnstile entrances which is still in use today. One of his outstanding clocks can be admired in the Musée des Arts et Métiers. Source: http://watch-wiki.org/index.php?title=Detouche,_Constantin_Louis, as of 10/07/2012

Ferdinand Berthoud This watch was made by Ferdinand Berthoud (1727-1807) in Paris, when he emigrated from Switzerland in 1747. In Paris he founded the well established firm "Bertoud à Paris". Berthoud was not only an eminent watchmaker but also the author of several books on the history, theory, and practice of watchmaking. Lit.: Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Jean Coteau (also known as Cotau, Cotteau) (1739-1812) Jean Coteau was born 1739 in Geneva and received his title of "maître peintre-émailleur" from the Académie de Saint-Luc in Geneva. He devoted himself to allegoric illustrations but also painted portraits (he also brought Elisa Bonaparte to canvas). In the late 1760s Coteau moved to Paris and opened a studio in the Rue Poupée. He soon had a reputation as an exceptional enamel and porcelain painter who most likely created the most important and intricate dials of his time. He developed a new and complicated process of creating ornaments with coloured pearls on small gold plates as well as a method enabling him to paint with gold alloys on a translucid royal blue background, which created a vivid and almost relief-like effect. The arts encyclopedia even mention the "Coteau Email". Hence it is not surprising that he from 1780 to 1784 he also worked for the royal Manufacture de Sèvres.

He was King of Sweden (1611'1632) and founder of the Swedish Empire (or Stormaktstiden ' "the era of great power") at the beginning of the Golden Age of Sweden. He led his nation to military supremacy during the Thirty Years War, helping to determine the political as well as the religious balance of power in Europe. He is thereby regarded as one of the greatest military commanders of all time. His most notable military victory was the battle of Breitenfeld. With a superb military machine with good weapons, excellent training, and effective field artillery, backed by an efficient government which could provide necessary funds, Gustavus Adolphus was poised to make himself a major European leader, but he was killed at the battle of Lützen in 1632. He was assisted by Axel Oxenstierna (1583'1654), leader of the nobles who also acted as regent after his death. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustavus_Adolphus_of_Sweden, as of 10/07/2012.
