Today not, but in the 50s well. As small watches were regarded as advanced up to the late 60s, only few manufacturers made wristwatch movements with proud 30mm casing diameter. Probably no accident that two of them, Helvetia and Omega, emerged from Louis Brandt & Fils When it comes to 30mm, the first thought of a collector is Omega 30, while the absolutely equivalent Helvetia 64 is flying beneath the radar.
     The maker of this watch did his best to make it small following the fashion, but less than 34.5mm was no option, if the case should be fairly stable. In the 50s this watch still required self-confidence, today it is dressy.
