    Hi. I just got a new movement made by Celestin Charpier (my second from that company), with the dial indicating sale by Standard Watch Co. There doesn't seem to be much in this forum about the company- I wonder if any of you have any information about it. Thanks.

    So I've been waiting patiently- does NO ONE here own a Charpier movement, or know anything about the company? Were they a designer and manufacturer, or just a brand name reselling others' designs? Not much about them on the Web either.

    Michael Edidin's article on Eugene Paulus and his day in court mentions Celestin Charpier and a possible connection to the business.
