So far 20 watches with this caliber are known. These watches achieved superb positionings in the categorie ships' chronometers around 1910/1925 in Neuchâtel.

Paul Ditisheim (1868-1945)
He was one of the most famous Swiss maker of watches and chronometers, who did most of his research and his publications in the field of precision timekeeping. He did his apprenticeship at the watchmaking school in La Chaux-de-Fonds, before working in Ponts-de-Martel, Berlin, Paris, and Rotherham (near Coventry). In 1892 he opened up a watchmaking factory in La Chaux-de-Fonds. He presented his watches in many exhibitions and was very sucessful in designing pocket chronometers.
