Ferdinand-Joseph Grandperrin


The son of Parisian horologist Nicolas-François Grandperrin and Anne-Antoinette-Victoire Lherminier, Ferdinand-Joseph Grandperrin took over his father’s business in the late 1830’s or early 1890’s, rapidly acquiring clients. Established at 394, rue Saint-Honoré, he became quite well known. In September 1842 he married Eléonore-Pauline Meugnot, probably the daughter of clockmaker Joseph-Julie-Alexandrine Meugnot, recorded in 1830 at the place de l’Oratoire. Grandperrin became famous for his innovative work, as well as for the perfection of his movements.
