Fiacre Clément

Fiacre Clément (d. Paris in 1758)
One of the most important Parisian clockmakers of the first half of the 18th century. After becoming a master on January 16, 1714, he became very well known. In the mid 1740s he opened a workshop in the rue Saint-Denis (see Tardy, Dictionnaire des horlogers français, Paris, 1971, p. 131). Two of his sons, Fiacre-François and Claude, continued to run their father’s workshop until the early years of the reign of Louis XVI.
