Antide Janvier, one of the greatest French clock makers of the late 18th and early 19th century, died in extreme poverty and without descent. Three of his most important regulators are part of the Patek Philippe Museum, Musee Paul Dupuy, and F.P. Journe private collection. By learning about his work, we consider that he was possibly the greatest clockmaker of all time; an idea that is now slightly becoming more and more approved. Limited to 1000 books, second edition, completed and enlarged with 124 clocks and 380 pictures, bilingual English and French.
After the first edition of this book, a result of several years of investigation released in 1995, a second edition became necessary to complete the list of his works due to the discoveries and indications of new clocks since then.
As in the previous edition, all clocks are numbered and presented in a chronological order with a serial number attributed in accordance with the numbering system already started by Antide Janvier and arbitrarily completed.
