Superb L'epee French Carriage Clock:
Never wanting to be late for the next party, the French invented the carriage clock, which uses a balance wheel to maintain accuracy during bumpy carriage rides. L'Epee remains the best maker. Weighing 1862 grams, this nearly perfect clock may date back to the late 1800's. It was acquired in France during the 1980's. With moon phase (it could also be used shipborne), day-date, and even an alarm it is the most sophisticated model. This clock is an hour and half hour repeater. A watch maker may also make it chime on the hour and half hour.
