This pocket watch has a particular allure: its back is decorated with floral engine-turned pattern and translucent mauve enamelling and a border of opaque white enamel pearls. The edges on front and back show Champlevé enamelling. The watch has diamonds on the pushers that open the case. A perfectly preserved guild mark proves that the watch case was made in 1781; the charge mark is that of Henri Clavel (1781-1783).
Henry Voisin took the business from his father, clockmaker Charles Voisin (1685-1761) in 1760. His real name was Antoine-Henry Voisin, but he signed his works "Henry Voisin".
