They had a factory in Saint-Nicolas-d'Ailermont, an important town for carriage clock manufacturing. The majority of their clocks would go to their Paris premises and be dispersed amongst the world's top retailers of that time. They exhibited at the major exhibitions winning a bronze medal at Paris 1867, the Silver at Paris 1878 and the gold at Paris in 1889.
