The quintessence of luxury horology during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, antique regulator clocks are extremely precise timepieces that were created due to the quest for ever-greater accuracy. Their regularity and reliability meant that they were often used to set the other clocks in a household. The antique regulator clocks offered by La Pendulerie are among the finest in the category.
While antique regulator clocks are often housed in sober, straight-lined wooden cases, the better to showcase their high-precision movements, some examples are more decorative, featuring beautiful gilt bronze mounts and ornaments. Sometimes with added features such as astronomic indications or equation of time, these timekeepers include floor-standing clocks, or “parquet regulators”(antique longcase clocks), as well as desk regulators, timepieces meant to be placed on a desk. Designed and created by the finest artisans of the day, these clocks, which bear witness to the continuing quest for ever-greater precision in timekeeping, as well as ever-greater esthetic beauty, count among the most extraordinary pieces offered by La Pendulerie.
