Tourbillon

The Tourbillon is a clockwork developed to solve the problem of gravity which affects the regularity of watch movements. It was invented by Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823) who was a horologist and physician, born in Neuchâtel. He was sent to be apprenticed to a master watchmaker in Versailles and he could gain respect and recognition of King Louis XVI and Queen Marie-Antoinette. During the French Revolution, he returned to Switzerland where he developed fundamental and varied inventions to horology

It’s first customers included the Red Cross, the Military Department and the Swiss Federal Railways.

After the war, sales of the Pic-Pic declined due to competition from imported brands, which finally led to the company’s bankruptcy.

Ballroom

La Clemence

The Clémence is the largest of the 45 bells of the cathedral of Geneva. Located in the north tower, it weighs six tons. It was cast in 1407 thanks to a gift from Robert de Genève, Antipope in Avignon. The bell was cast in a pit where the mould was lowered and then buried to prevent it from exploding under the pressure of the molten metal. Armand Dufaux, on the other hand, specialised in the automobile industry in Paris.
