MARTI, SAMUEL 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
1900 - Medaille d'Or
This clock is stamped with their Silver medal, dating the clock fairly accurately to the 1890s. The eight day movement strikes the hours and the passing of the half hour on a coiled gong.
The silvered dial is finely engraved around the minute track, and with matching blued steel spade hands.
