"Guess-the-Name-of-the-Jeweller-Contest" - Hint #4

I think I have a winner. But since I promised 4 hints, I am publishing the fourth and last set of clues now, to give me some time while I prepare my post to announce the winner(s) and tell the whole story later on today.

****Please leave a comment if you think you know the answer. I've decided to offer runners-up-prizes.****
Hint # 4 - Together with his staff, his jewellery company made a unique art object for an important holiday, once each year, starting with 1885 until years later when his company was forced to close. In making these jewellery-objects, he often incorporated ingenious mechanical mechanismens because the object was to have an element of surprise. It took a year to make each object, during which time all information about the object was a well-gaurded secret. Thanks to his ideas and the good working conditions he had, his company's products reached a pinacle of craftsmanship, impossible to ever attain again, because, among other reasons, his technical notes have vanished.
I'll get back with you later today, Wednesday March 31st.
In the mean time,
be happy!
