Dating comtoise clocks

A form of provincial, weight-driven clock originally made in the vicinity of Morbier in the Franche*-Comt region of France (Conte in the old spelling), near the Swiss frontier, from the late 17th century to the beginning of the 20th.

Only in this set-up the double rack construction occurs, which is here operated by two skillfully forged levers.

The hook that has been fitted above the bell, serves to strengthen the pendulum suspension housing.

Although originating from the Jura, the striking train features a pivoting rack.

The clock has a very logical construction which is furthermore emphasized by the perfect finish.
