Catalogue Note

James Nardin (1814-1885), an accomplished chronometer maker, was the first cousin of Ulysse Nardin.  He established his business in Le Locle, Switzerland and obtained a US patent for a stem-wound watch in 1869.  His company went on to win the Gold Medal for horology at the Paris Universal Exhibition in 1878.
