Biography
Dubuc
The Parisian clockmaker Nicolas-Pierre-François Dubuc, known as Dubuc the elder, was active in Paris from the final years of the reign of Louis XVI to the early years of the Empire (see Tardy, Dictionnaire des horlogers français, Paris, 1971, p. 193). Almost certainly the elder brother of the clockmaker Jean-Baptiste-Charles-Gabriel Dubuc (known as Dubuc the younger), he was very successful among important Parisian clock collectors. His workshop was located successively in the rue du Grand-Hurleur, the rue du Grenier-Saint-Lazare and the rue Michel-Lecomte.
