Fiacre Clement (died in Paris in 1758).
One of the most important Parisian watchmakers of the first half of the 18th century. After his accession to the master's degree, on January 16, 1714, he achieved great notoriety and set up his workshop in the mid-1740s, rue Saint-Denis (see Tardy, Dictionnaire des Horlogers Français, Paris, 1971, p. 131) . Two of his sons, Fiacre François and Claude, will continue the activity of the father's workshop until the beginning of the reign of Louis XVI.
