Antoine Favre-Salomon (1734–1820)[1] was a Swiss watchmaker. In 1796, he invented a pocket watch with an embedded musical mechanism,[2] which was later recognised as the first "comb" music box. One of his surviving music boxes is displayed at the Shanghai Gallery of Antique Music Boxes and Automata in Pudong's Oriental Art Center.[3]
