If the 4-digit number 3479 is an indication that it is a work that was completed by Breguet is full, can't understand. The quality of the watch could speak in any case. Probably it is a at of B-L Petit, resident in the Rue St. Honoré , active about 1810 to about 1840. He should – we consider this clock to the watchmakers, the best French Precision of its time. He was the son-in-law and successor (and with some of the students) of another famous Parisian watchmaker, Claude Mathieu le Ainé (1722-1812).
