L. A. Jarossay
Jarossay is considered to have been one of the most imaginative clockmakers in the mid 19th century; he is particularly famous for his in-depth study of worm-screw gear-trains. Jarossay obtrained a patent for his design in 1844 and took out a second one on its employment in clocks and regulators in 1850; the concept of the second patent was the recduction of manufacturing costs.
