    I have looked in the usual places without luck so far ...

    Louis Recordon was granted a patent for a self-winding watch in March 1780. But ...

    When did he APPLY for the patent?

    I can not answer your questions but I have information that he did get the patent.

    Brittens's books state that Des Granges, who took over the business from Recordon, held this patent.
