"the carriage clock" - "Officer's Clock"

he name "Corniche" comes from the elaborate molding, or frame, of the rectangular top.
Carriage clocks are also known in France as "officer's clocks," and the name is based on a historical anecdote. It is said that Napoleon, having almost lost an important battle due to the tardiness of one of his officers, ordered his military leaders to carry a carriage clock with him at all times. Orders made to master watchmakers always included the words "a watch for an officer," and this brought the name into common parlance.

The first authentic carriage clock was made in Paris in the early xixth century under the auspices of the great Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747-1823). The "Corniche" collection is the best-known watch in the l'Epée collection through its nearly 200 years of accomplishments. Indeed, during the 20th century, "l'Epée 1839 Corniche" was the favorite gift of French government officials to elite guests. Thus, for many, the Epée 1839 was the mark of the influential and powerful.
