Among many great jewellery houses, Verger Frères made magnificent objets d’art and jewels.

The founder of this great firm was Ferdinand Verger (1851-1928), both a jeweller and a watchmaker at rue Sainte-Anne no 51 under the name of Verger Frères (Verger Brothers).

Beginning in 1879, Ferdinand Verger started to work as an agent for the famous house of Vacheron Constantin. That later developed into a long-lasting partnership. While they were often associated with Vacheron Constantin, Verger produced pieces for the finest houses in the world such as Cartier, Lacloche Frères, Hermès, Van Cleef & Arpels, Tiffany, Gübelin and Boucheron.

The house of Verger was unique in that it was involved in all the aspects of jewellery and watch making. It employed a whole array of artisans – lapidaries, stone-setters, gold, platinum and silversmiths, enamellers, watchmakers and casemakers, designers and renderers and so on, all of whom were fully employed by the firm.


Condition of the case is excellent, bright and clean with hardly any wear or discolouration and there are no losses. The dial is also in excellent condition just some tiny nibbles next to the winding holes. 

A. D. Mougin clockmaker's mark on the back plate along with the mark of the Parisan retailer Verger Frères

About us - All of our clocks are original antiques, we source most of our clocks in France, Belgium, the Netherlands and the UK. We prefer to buy our clocks in original 'dirty' condition. We then clean the cases using a technique we have developed over many years. We employ two qualified clockmakers who overhaul the movements. Movements are thoroughly tested until we are satisfied that they will run trouble free.
