A larger-than-average four-glass clock , the case being of the superior styling with rounded mouldings, giving it a softer look. The case has been regilded in 24carat satin-finish gold, and is presented in excellent condition, as new. All four sides are glazed with thick beveled mineral glasses, without blemishes or chips.

The eight day French movement is signed with the maker, Samuel Marti's bronze medal stamp. It is rack striking the number of hours and the passing of the half hour on a bell. The Brocot escapement with jewelled pallets is visible through the dial.

The two-piece white enamel dial is in perfect original condition, with Roman numerals and blued steel moon hands. It also has a Brocot regulation square above the XII for fine-tuning the timing. There are gilded brass grommets to the winding holes to protect the dial from mishaps with the key.

Substantial, temperature compensated mercurial pendulum.


The movement is to be overhauled within our workshops and guaranteed for 3 years.
SAMUEL MARTI et Cie was a well-known maker in Paris in the mid-late 1800s. In 1863 he worked with two other well-known makers Roux and Japy Freres in promoting their clock movements, and won certificates for excellence as follows:
1860 - Medaille de Bronze
1889 - Medaille d'Argent
The fact that this clock is stamped with their bronze medal tells us that it is dated some time from 1860-1889.
