Le Lieu, Vallée de Joux, Switzerland.

Early nineteenth-century maker of musical boxes. (Ord-Hume, Musical Boxes, p. 292)


A. Aubert
Jaccard & Aubert (1907 – 1934)

Clark relates that in 1907 two Swiss musical-box makers set up in business in Clerkenwell Road, London, chiefly as repairers. They were Messr. Jaccard & Aubert. Louis Jaccard had been with Paillard & Co. at Ste-Croix, and Aubert had worked with his father, Daniel Aubert, who was a musical-box maker. Jaccard had brought with him a cylinder-pricking machine and a large quantity of materials for repairs. Aubert was an expert at comb repairs and it seems that he stuck so close to his work in their Clerkenwell shop that, in due course, he developed consumption, from which he died in 1910. Louis Jaccard continued in business as a repairer and also dealer in gramophones, movements and springs until his death in 1934. He was 69 and was burned to death in his workshop..

Arthur Junod and Cesar Aubert


Aubert & Linton, London

London clock and watchmakers established c. 1863. Name seen on musical boxes. Thought to be importer rather than maker. (Ord-Hume, Musical Boxes, p. 292)


Aubert et Cuendet Frères, then Aubert & Fils, ab 1860 bis nach 1880 (St. Croix)

Aubert et Cuendet Frères had been active in Sainte-Croix since 1860, and later took on the name Aubert & Fils. The business developed thanks to the invention of Daniel Aubert who, on 16th September 1879, filed a patent for a system which allowed extended playing time with one winding operation. This process was subsequently developed under the name Longue marche and also applied to watches and clocks which only needed rewinding once a week.

(Piguet, Jean-Claude: The Music Box Makers, 2004, S. 193)


Aubert et Cuendet, ab 1860 (St. Croix), später Aubert et Fils, bis nach 1882 (Genf)

Aubert & Fils was proud to show its music boxes of all types which play for two hours without rewinding (from the exhibition catalogue) at the International Exhibition of Machine Tools used in Watchmaking, which took place in Geneva in 1880. Daniel Aubert applied for a patent in various countries and also developed products for exportation.

Aubert & Fils had on offer a whole series of objects in July 1882 and then disappeared, to turn up later as manufacturer of snuffboxes in Geneva.
