Charles Cabrier II
Charles Cabrier‘s father (a French watchmaker who emigrated to England after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes) and his son - Charles Cabrier I and III - were both reputed makers as well. Cabrier himself began his apprenticeship in 1719, was a member of the Clockmakers‘ Company from 1726 on and a master from 1757 until 1772. Until 1759 he had a workshop in 79 Broad Street, near Finsbury Circus; he then moved to Pig Street - which does not exist anymore - near Threadneedle Street. The watch we have here may have been a joint effort by Charles Cabrier II and his son. Baillie mentions Charles Cabrier II as a "famous maker", Britten calls him a "celebrated maker".
