ERNEST GUINAND (c. 1810-1879). Was an important Master Horologist from Le Locle, who, along with Auguste Grether from Ponts-de-Martel 1817-1879, specialized in the production of tourbillon carriages. According to the records of the Neuchâtel Observatory, Guinand's production of tourbillons began between 1865 and 1867. He designed three models of Tourbillon carriage, always based on an A-shaped frame. He worked for several important makers, including Girard-Perregaux and Montandon. Most were equipped with a pivoted detent escapement, one with spring detent and some with lever escapement. Most of his carriages were not signed and can only be identified by their characteristic A-shape.
