Product Description

The two-part chatelaine has an oval enamel miniature of a young lady with a powdered wig and flowers in her hair. The back is made of tortoiseshell.

This watch was made by Ferdinand Berthoud (1727-1807) in Paris, when he emigrated from Switzerland in 1747. In Paris he founded the well established firm "Bertoud à Paris". Berthoud was not only an eminent watchmaker but also the author of several books on the history, theory, and practice of watchmaking.
