Maurice Coüet came from a long lineage of watchmakers. He learned from both his father and grandfather – both watchmakers for Breguet – and later move to Paris to set up his own business that would exclusively create table clocks for Cartier.
The present comet clock is in superb condition featuring a beautiful night sky theme with gold stars. The mechanism incorporates a rotating disc indicating day or night along the top portion of the dial. This example is from the descendant of the original owner, and is in excellent condition.
Similarly shaped desk timepieces illustrated in Barracca J., Negretti G., Nencini F, Le Temps de Cartier, 1989, p. 62
