I have spent two days in the shop. What an amazing place. Everywhere I look, some treasure is hiding. Here are some photos of today’s finds.
This gem was hiding under a bunch of bubble wrap in a bag in a box under more wrapping material and other boxes under a bench. This is why one should always check EVERYTHING!
These gorgeous (albeit, fragments) Lighthouse clocks were on a tray on the floor of a small cupboard. They are missing almost everything, but I am hopeful I will find the tops to their lanterns and bases somewhere in the haystack.
But look closely at the next find…………..
Ok – here is a closer look
Now do you see it?
Yes, this original document contains the signatures of many prominent horologists, and among them is Louis Breguet.
Here are some photos of the front room, which Dennis did most of his work in.
Today I accomplished my main goal of clearing out and organizing one of the smaller rooms and its contents.
These were all moved from the little room pictured above. Each drawer or every other is separate and has to be moved individually and restacked. They fit together with a pin system, but sometimes the pins don’t match from unit to unit. This can be troublesome when the stack gets too high!
Anyhow, I’m off to bed. It’s been a long day and there are many more to come. I can’t wait.

Talk about touching history! There’s a really great book in all this. I know you’re taking lots of photos. Let me know if I need to send you a spare hard disk… 😉
Thanks Mark – and you’re right! I’m keeping a daily log/journal.
I am Brittany’s (Nico) mother and have had the honor and joy of watching her grow into one of the most amazing women I have ever met.
I find her work and incredible mind, talent, and accomplishments, especially at a young age, far exceeding my expectations. I am so blessed to watch her as she follows her chosen path.
Brittany please keep on posting. We love your photos, knowledge and gift of writing interesting posts.
Gosh, thanks Mom… x
You’re welcome. But it almost goes without saying that I am just stating FACTS that everyone can see about you as well. Mark is correct, there is a very interesting book in the future for you to author. Many students and professors will soon be learning from you. Just stay as sweet and humble as you are and the world shall open it’s arms to you. Love you Sweetie.
I am so amazed with everything ! I can’t wait for more. And thank you for the amazing close ups and global view, now we can really understand the vastety of the place !
I’m so glad today’s technology allows me to share this with others. Just wish you were here in person!
