3D model description

This pendulum lantern watch is authored by master watchmaker Adolphe Mougin. This was a reputed watchmaker and produced pendulum clocks for various watch manufacturers. Being that Mougin produced watches in the middle and end of the century. XIX, we can conclude that the dial and the box of the century. XVIII (1745) are not original to him.

These details make this watch in a doubly interesting piece, where a work of art of the century. XVIII and a mechanism of excellence of the end of the century. XIX.
