The influence of Lucien's study and interest in medieval works of art can clearly be seen in this present clock. Undoubtedly of exhibition quality and with the very finest attention to detail, it is almost certainly the clock exhibited in Paris at the Exposition Universelle in 1878 and described as the Angelus. At a later date similar examples were produced in silver. Another gothic-inspired clock in gold, hardstones and enamel is now in the collection of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
