A gentleman's very fine quarter repeating pocket watch "à toc" with cylinder escapement


Case: 18k rose gold. Dial: enamel. Movm.: full plate movement, keywind, 2 hammers, three-arm brass balance, hack feature.

Jean Gregson
Jean-Pierre Gregson originally came from England. In 1776 he was appointed watchmaker to the king in Paris. He was one of the first watchmakers of his time to use the Lépine calibre. In 1787 Gregson founded a watch manufacture in Braille.
