Pierre-Basile Lepaute (1750-1843), also known as Sully-Lepaute, took over the famous company founded in the 1740s and led it together with his son Pierre-Michel Lepaute (1785-1849). He wore the title of Horloger de l'Empereur during the imperial era. Lepaute was one of the main clockmakers for the imperial court.
