About The Artist:

The "two-face" clock theme dates to the Jaeger-LeCoultre "Double Face" desk clock of ca. 1935 which had a Calibre 2.10 JLC movement and ran for eight days. The "Double Face" had been made in several styles over the years. Although known for watchmaking, the Jaeger-LeCoultre firm became suppliers of clocks to the Allied forces during WWI. Following the war they made automobile dashboard clocks. In 1926 a specialized department devoted only to clockmaking was created by JLC. Their most famous achievement was the Atmos clock, but their line included the Mignonette alarm, Ados clock with curtain, Mysterieuse clock, Luxhorn, Etrier, Baguette, Rue de la Paix, Luminous Globe and the Subject clock, named the Double-Face in 1935.
