Jean-Pierre and Amy Huaud went into partnership in Geneva in 1682 and worked in Berlin from 1686 until 1700. In 1700, they returned to Geneva, where they made watchcases for export. This example features an image, popular at the time, of Roman Charity. The case was supplied to one of the best Amsterdam watchmakers, who added the movement, bezel, and glass, probably for a Dutch client with a preference for painted enamels and pretty women.
