Johann Michael Pergauer (also Bergauer) Pergauer was born in Vienna around 1717 and became a master in 1757. He was clockmaker to the court in Vienna circa 1770; in 1771 his proposal of establishing a clock manufactory was rejected. In 1780 the imperial court awarded Pergauer the sum of 150 gulden for a metal stamping machine. Pergauer died in 1791. Source: Juergen Abeler, "Meister der Uhrmacherkunst", 2.
