The brass case has been polished and is lacquered so it will not tarnish. The movement has been serviced in our own workshops and is guaranteed for 12 months.
Achille Brocot (1817–1878) was a French clockmaker and amateur mathematician.He is known for his discovery (independently of and contemporaneously with German number theorist Moritz Stern) of the Stern–Brocot tree, a mathematical structure useful in approximating real numbers by rational numbers; this sort of approximation is an important part of the design of gear ratios for clocks. He also made many other horological innovations including refinement of his father Louis-Gabriel's Brocot escapement and the development of clocks with perpetual calendar mechanisms.
