Roux, Romand, Bordier & Comp. The Bordier brothers were associated watchmakers as early as 1794. In 1815, they worked at the Grand Mézel. In 1794, they took Roux and Romand into partnership, establishing the company Bordier, Roux, Romand & Cie. Between 1794 and 1811, they were specialised in automaton repeating watches as well as complicated or skeletonized watches, with perpetual calendar, often decorated with painted enamels, pearls and gemstones.
This pocket watch is of exquisite quality; especially striking is the delicate very fine miniature painting on the back. A rare feature is the switch that toggles the quarter repeat between "à tact" on a bell in the case back and "à tact" on the case.
