Lot No. 342* (93rd Auction)
"Chronometre Tourbillon", Case No. 115102, 53 mm, 108 g, circa 1900

A silver pocket watch - so called "people's tourbillon"
Case: silver. Dial: enamel. Movm.: full plate movement, screw compensation balance.

The patent for this type of watch was submitted by Louis and Edouard Fallet Fils of St. Imier in 1905 and was issued the number 34394. By placing the tourbillon on a central arbor, Edouard Fallet avoided infringing the Swiss patent no. 30754 the French maker Paul Loichot of Charquemont (Doubs) had received on June 6, 1904; the fact that the cage was visible on the dial side was part of Loichot’s claim element.
