A LARGE AND ORNATE STAMPED, GILDED, SILVERED AND PAINTED TIN MORBIER WAG-ON-THE-WALL CLOCK  
The enamel dial marked "Premier Qualite Garantie/A. Calin" and "A Antun", Calin being the retailer. Weight-driven time and strike on bell with a second strike two minutes after the hour. For example, at 6:00, the clock strikes 6 times, and at 6:02, strikes 6 times again. The first strike was a call to prayer, the second to indicate when to begin praying. This tradition dates back to the 12th century, when most clocks were built for churches, and the populace listened to church bells to know what time it was, when to pray, and when to eat.<br /> <br /> The French Morbier clock is known as a provincial clock, to distinguish it from clocks made in major urban centres, primarily Paris. The clock was named after the village of Morbier, a rural, agricultural community in the Jura Mountains of the Franche-Comté region near the French border with Switzerland, also famous for its Morbier cheese. (The clocks are also known as Comtoise clocks because of their production in the Franche-Comte region.)<br /> <br /> Starting in the second half of the 18th century, farmers began to manufacture clock parts during the cold winter months; often an entire village would be involved, in some way, with the making of the clocks. One family may have made the dials, another the hands, cut wheels or made the cases, each specializing in some part of the clock, with the final assembly left to a few clock makers. The clocks were then usually sold to travelers passing through town. Production stopped around 1914 with the onset of World War I.
