Cal. 30 I
"As the caliber was developed solely for precision testing at observatory competitions, Jean Pierre Matthey-Claudet created only 12 copies according to the design by Marcel Vuilleumier, director of the watchmaking school in Valée de Joux. The famous Alfred Jaccard fine-adjusted some of these movements between 1947 and 1952 and they achieved outstanding results in Kew-Teddington, Neuchâtel and Geneva."
