This fine Empire clock has a circular bronze annular dial with Roman chapters shaped as a wheel, it is surmounted by Minerva and Diomedes on a Lion chariot drawn by Stallions. The clock is raised on a plinth base and has an eight-day twin barrel movement with silk suspension and countwheel strike on a bell.
The original model for this clock was made by Reiche in 1807. Reiche's original designs for this clock survive in the Bibliothèque Nationale de Paris. There are many known surviving models, including one at Malmaison.
