History Of The Clock-Making Company Japy Frères
Born in town of Beaucourt in France, the clock-making company Japy Frères et Cie (also known as Japy Frères) is one of the most famous collectible antique French clocks today. History started as early as 1777 when Frederick Japy began making clocks in his factory in the region of La Franche-Compte. Soon, the lone clock-maker established the clock-making company under his name in 1806. Together with his three sons they run the first ever rough watch movement factory in France. Japy Frères clocks are generally made of metal in form of brass and bronze. The hardware, like domes, bases, and other embellishments like figures and ornamental attachments range from oak and mahogany wood accentuated with brass plates and gold to rare materials like turquoise shell, ormolu, and marble. Enamel is also common in his works especially for the dials.
