Henri-Louis Jacot started making carriage clocks in Paris in 1820 at the age of twenty-three. He was to become one of the best makers of this style of clock being awarded his first award, a bronze medal, at the Paris Exposition of 1855. In the early 1860s he took his nephew into the business and a partnership was formed working from an address in a small Paris street near the Horologerie Quarter; 31, Rue de Montmonercey. It was at this point that the Jacot carriage clocks as we know where manufactured. Henri died in July 1868, with the business being continued by his nephew Albert under the guidance of his father Julien. The firm finally shut soon after 1925.
