Description Andre Guilmet (1821-1892) of Paris produced a series of industrial clocks from the mid-1870's until about 1910. This fine weather station/clock compendium has three faces, one for an 8-day clock, one for an aneroid barometer and one for the temperature. There is a small compass underneath the top. Each dial is silvered bronze. The clock has steel hands and a fast and slow regulator lever at the top of the dial. The barometer has English text and the thermometer registers the degrees in Fahrenheit. With the ring at the top, the model for the upper part of this clock is the Davy's Miner Lamp Clock.

The base is cast in brass with gilt and silver plating, mounted on a mahogany base. The lighthouse form includes incised brickwork and a pierced fence at the top.

André Romain Philéas Guilmet was an obsessive inventor who took out many patents for designs, both horological and others during his working life. Some were in conjunction with other inventors, such as the bicycle chain (developed with Edouard Myer in 1868). For additional information on this interesting clockmaker, please see Derek Roberts’ book, Mystery, Novelty and Fantasy Clocks.
