Description

Joseph Oudin (1773 - c.1842) was one of several of his family members to be occupied in horology.  He and his cousin, Charles, were employed by Breguet and their skill in the field was recognised and very much respected. As such Joseph was involved in creating the most complicated pieces produced by the manufacture during his tenure earning himself the title 'Student of Breguet'. His production is thought to be 270 pieces, despite the small production he’s known for his diversity.
