“Fredrick Louis Fatton first worked for Abraham Louis Breguet in Russia between 1801-1807. By 1814 he was Breguet's independent agent in London. Interestingly, Fatton is one of several men who signed their work Elève de Breguet. Fatton was the inventor of the Inking Chronograph, see George Daniels, The Art of Breguet, p. 72. Fatton took out two patents for inking chronographs in 1822, numbers 4645 and 4707.”
