Comments about the data

Only 4 calibres are known from this manufacturer: two round calibres 8.75''' and 10.5''' as well as two form calibres 6.5 x 11'''(Altus 4) and 8.75 x 12'''(Altus 10).
Complete watches were produced for the US importer Garland, strange regarding the prohibitive US customs regulations.
The two form calibres were apllied by A. Lange & Söhne.
