The similarities between Kaiser 8 (38), Kienzle 16-46, and to certain extent Würthner 19.5''' is surely no accident. Nothing is known about a cooperation, but likely tools were passed from one to the other.

38/10: 10 jewels, pin lever, pivoted staff
38/15: 15 jewels, pallet lever, pivoted staff, double roller
