Very beautiful house tower/lantern clock with quarter striking and gaper mechanics. Sereze in Thimister is near the place where the Beefes come: the hamlet Befve, near Liège - Belgium. The dial has an engraved pewter ring and is dated by a chronogram:. 1717 The date follows from the sum of the Roman numerals in the engraved text: Ma fin peut estre chaque de ces heures "each of these hours may be my last." An absolute museum timepiece of this eminent maker. Signature: Gilles de Beefe ma fait a Sereze.
