Footnotes

  • Literature:

    Allix, Charles and Peter Bonnert. Carriage Clocks (1974) pp 289 - 290.

    Based on a form originated by A.-L. Breguet, they note that "These clocks were almost certainly made by the famous London workman W. Barnsdale... who supplied in 1905 a 'humpbacked' carriage clock in a shagreen case with silver mounts." Like the present example, "The clock offered perpetual calendar and moon, and it had a double roller escapement with a Breguet spring."
