Gounouilhou & Francois were well-known Geneva makers working at Quai de l’Isle 241 making clocks and watches with complications as well as carriage clocks with both petite and grande-sonnerie strike-work. They exhibited at L’Exposition Geneva in 1828. Pierre-simon Gounouilhou was a French protestant, born in 1779, who was to have a major influence on the horological scene in Geneva; amongst his many achievements were watches constructed with quarter-chiming and Jaquemarts automata. He was a signatory on the petition, dated February 1829, to have a new observatory constructed.
