Alphonse Pavid, Geneva
Geneva maker of pocket chronometers and regleur Jean-Louis Alphonse Pavid was born on June 17, 1853. His father worked as a watchmaker and jeweller in Yverdon. Alphonse worked in the Geneva workshops of Albert Potter in the late 1870s and the early 1880s. From 1884 to about 1915 Alphonse Pavid received a number of test certificates for his chronometers; they were issued by the observatories in Geneva, Neuchâtel and Kew-Teddington. During the chronometer test in 1891 Alphonse received an award in the serial testing; the five best chronometers of each maker were judged. On April 12, 1893 Alphonse invented a regulation system with flexible balance spring studs and a bimetallic compensation balance spring in an unusual design ("steel-brass balance, System Pavid"). It looks like neither of these inventions was ever registered as a patent though. In 1894 Alphonse Pavid and Genoese precision regleurs G.-Marie Rouge, Alexis Favre, J. Cordier, Charles-Auguste Paillard and Marius Fave introduced a reform of the chronometer testing process. 1896 Alphonse Pavid exhibited his products at the national Swiss exhibition in Geneva and was awarded a prize with distinction in the serial tests for regleurs.
