1834 - Sympathique clock

Sympathique clock

When Louis-Clément Breguet, the grandson, entered the business in 1833, he immediately took an interest in the Sympathique clock and filed two new patents, one of which added watch winding to its existing functions: regulating the watch and setting the time. Around 50 copies of the second-generation Sympathique clock, with or without the regulating function, were sold between 1834 and 1838, including one to King Louis-Philippe, another to his son, the Duke of Orléans, a third to the Duke of Wellington, and a fourth to the King of Hannover.
