Albert Pellaton-Favre (1834-1914)
1) A native of Le Locle, was one of the principle constructors of tourbillons. He made no fewer than 82 tourbillon watches, mostly with spring detent escapement, and won prizes from the Geneva and Neuchatel Observatories. He was the father of James Pellaton, director of the Le Locle Technicum, and a fine horologer in his own right.
2) The Pellatons & Patek Philipe.
Only the over 35 Tourbillons, which Albert Pellaton-Favre (1832-1914) and his son James Pellaton manufactured for Patek Philippe, is a special class in the area of precision horology. Apart from the outstanding results, obtained by these calibres, it is the esthetical concept combined with the absolute technical perfection and craftsmanship, which distinguished these instruments. The Tourbillons of Pellaton represent the best, ever brought out by the Swiss chronometry. The basic calibre was developed by A.Pellaton Favre. He used, without exception, an Earnshaw chronometer escapement in his revolving carriages. His son James Pellaton 1873 -1954), director of the Technicum Le Locle, manufactured these Tourbillons as free co-worker for Patek Philippe. Unlike his father he favoured however Swiss anchor escapements. He often supplied just the complete ?bauche (movement blank) and monitored the completion of the chronometer in house, where he had his own workbench. Exceptional performances could be obtained through these extraordinary privileges as granted by Patek Philipe. Their reputation was established by their farsighted and scientifically oriented way of acting. Although J. Pellaton pursued just a concept, it became increasingly matured. Tiny details, like the perfection of the polish or the golden scale for the adjusting needle, which also served as a counter balance, are from an unequalled constructional genius, which one finds only in these works. It set thereby a standard, on which others were measured. Since regulation of a chronometer begins with its design and construction, it was also due to the Pellatons that these chronometers scored top results in the hands of experienced regulators. A fact often and painfully neglected by other manufacturers.

J?mes C?sar Pellaton, better known as James C. Pellaton, born in LeLocle in 1873, is one of the most esteemed 20th century maker of tourbillon carriages. He learned his craft from his father Albert Pellaton-Favre (1832-1914), also a highly respected tourbillon maker.
The shape of the cage and the date the watch was made strongly suggest that the tourbillon was supplied by Albert Pellaton. Albert Pellaton-Favre (1832-1914) A native of Le Locle, he was a fine constructor of tourbillons. Born Frederic Albert Pellaton, he used the name of Albert Pellaton-Favre, adjoining his wife's name to his own, as was the custom. Pellaton-Favre is known as one of the principal constructors of tourbillon chronometer watches of the 19th century, having made over 80 of them. In 1905 he was awarded the first prize in the First Class for pocket watches at the Neuch?tel Observatory. He is said to have executed the tourbillon work and escapements for the Paul Ditisheim chronometer which took first place in the Kew Observatory contests of 1903, as well as some for Nardin, and one for Golay Fils and Stahl, a chronometer with tourbillon, which won second prize at the 1907 Chronometric contest. The clockmaking dynasty founded by Albert Pellaton-Favre lasted another generation, through his son James Casar Pellaton (c. 1880-1954).
