FIRST CHOICE by Antoine Simonin : A high quality book where for the first time the history of the most important Swiss watchmaker is made visible.
A complete monography on Jacques Frédéric Houriet 1743-1830 who was an important representative of the Empire period and a great horological genius.
At this time, he left Paris where fame and glory seemed promised to him to settle in Le Locle.
The present book gives him the recognition he deserves.
