Most French Carriage clocks have brass cases but some very special models can be found in wooden cases. The mahagony veneers of this case are inlayed with boxwood stringing on the front panel drawing attention to the pure white enamel dial with Roman numerals and Breguet hands. A subtle brass spacer holds the glass over the dial in place. The finely made balance wheel escapment 8 day movement is contained within the case. In superb condition.
