Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud The FB 1 Chronometer exhibited in Maastricht
From March 10th to 19th 2017, Chronométrie Ferdinand Berthoud presents its first horological creation at TEFAF Maastricht (NL).
The FB 1 Chronometer - with its tourbillon and suspended fusée and chain mechanism, which was awarded the highest distinction “L’Aiguille d’Or” at the Grand Prix d’Horlogerie de Genève 2016 - will be exhibited on the booth of the Galerie Delalande, an antiques expert and dealer specialising in marine and scientific objects.
Eric Delalande, Secretary General of the Compagnie Nationale des Experts (C.N.E.), an expert notably specialised in marine and scientific objects, and a member of the Syndicat National des Antiquaires in Paris, has developed a real passion for Ferdinand Berthoud (1727-1807. The exceptional work accomplished by the watchmaker in the field of marine chronometry, during the reigns of Louis XV, Louis XVI and the Empire period, made him one of the most eminent horologists of the late 18th century. His works are exhibited in some of the major European and American museums, such as the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers in Paris, the British Museum in London, or the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
The Chronometry Ferdinand Berthoud and the house Delanande have forged links as early as 2015. This cooperation continues this year at TEFAF 2017, on an unusual booth created by the Galerie Delalande on the theme of astronomy.
TEFAF (The European Fine Art Fair) is the world’s most prestigious international art and antiques fair, drawing 275 exhibitors from more than 20 countries to The Netherlands and its Maastricht Exhibition and Congress Centre (MEEC).
