Deshays

D
Deshays
A little-known clockmaker who signed “Deshays à Paris”, Deshays was nevertheless a brilliant artisan and inventor whom Tardy mentions as having taken part in the 1827 Exposition des Produits de l’Industrie française, where he presented a chronometer with “échappement à manivelle” (Tardy, Dictionnaire des horlogers français, Paris, 1971, p. 181).
