Comments about the data

open face calibre
bimetallic screw balance with 2 adjustment screws

The signatures on the back of the movement (Fig.3) and in the case (Fig.4) assign the watch to Cortébert. But the later was also used by Dubois, and according to the signature under the dial (Fig.2), the movement came from Dubois. Other reasons for this combination of signatures are unlikely, but not impossible. Therefore this calibre is here also listed as Cortebert 18'''.

Example, year: signature; shock device
ca. 1905: 78918, JFC (Juillard Frères, Cortébert SA) - DuBois & Cie, Le Locle
(Dubois 18''')
