A form of provincial, weight-driven clock originally made in the vicinity of Morbier in the Franche*-Comt region of France (Conte in the old spelling), near the Swiss frontier, from the late 17th century to the beginning of the 20th.

They are sometimes called Morez clocks or Morbier clocks, from place names in the area.

Village life was very conservative, and the people living in villages at this time still had no real need of "to the minute" time.

From around 1730 (all these figures are approximate all the way through this article) the brass dial clock was made all over England in ever-increasing numbers, and the dials became more ornate as time went on, especially on the eight-day clocks.

The village of Pont Farcy (district of Calvados) and St. Lansalot, born in the Jura founded a big Comtoise industry, that employed over 300 people in Navarenx (district of Pyrenes-Atlantique).
