Bronze clocks were developed shortly after the war of 1870, depicting a new type of clock that is equally and interestingly charming! There is a considerable price difference between stainless steel and gold watches, which allows stainless steel clocks to circulate freely from the effects of heavy taxes. Watches and clocks were thus promoted to all levels of society and led to the birth of proletarian clocks and watches. The product has also been greatly encouraged by the growing French metal industry and has developed new methods of steel production and processing.
Bronze clocks are designed in various styles, sometimes with a simple case, and sometimes with two gold-plated metal trims on the bezel and the edge of the case back. The dial can be white or colored enamel, simply marked with the word Regulateur, or digitally embellished with a round carved dial with various colors of enamel trim.
