The best English text I have come across is The French Marble Clock by Nicolas Thorpe which has a great deal of info on the pendule de Paris movement.

Hello Fortunat,

Thank you very much for your answer.

I´m a restorer of antiques clocks. I live in Spain, Europe, and ussually I repair antiques clock with Paris movements.

Books are one of the best ways to increase the knowledge about clocks.

Paris movements have often many variations; to know its caracteristics, dates, etc, is very interesting for me.

Best regards,
Miguel
