OEIL DE BOEUF
Circa 1760
Switzerland

Movement
The spring-driven eight-day brass movement is constructed between narrow plates and consists of a going train only, which has verge escapement with a front pendulum (‘Kuhschwanzpendel’). The clock is wound from the front.

Dial
The clock has an octagonal velvet-covered dial with an elaborately engraved silvered brass chapter ring with Roman hour numerals, half-hour, quarter-hour, Arabic five-minute and minute divisions. The winding hole is situated above the VI. The time is indicated by a fine pair of pierced brass hands.

Case
The beautifully shaped octagonal ebonised wooden case has a brass suspension eye in the shape of a fleur-de-lis at the top. The circumference of the case becomes smaller towards the front, all layers elegantly moulded.
