The company established its name by serving royalty and celebrities. But that began to change. By the early 1900s, the company had branches in London and New York.

Very nice details that were only seen on early pieces.
This beautifully simple piece here is seen in 18k rose gold, boasting no imperfections of any kind. The back has an engine turned finish with a small monogram in the center, with a classic crown and gold seal on the stem. The clean open face looks quite large and it is, measuring 56mm in diameter. It features iridescent blued steel hands and a sunken seconds subdial, with black and burgundy numerals, all allowing for a subdued contrast. It might be a watch brand you haven’t heard of.
