• Upcoming updates
    Over the next couple of weeks we will be performing software updates on the forum. These will be completed in small steps as we upgrade individual software addons. You might occasionally see a maintenance message that will last a few minutes at most.

    If we anticipate an update will take more than a few minutes, we'll put up a notice with estimated time.

    Thank you!

Have seen this thing many times which are ubiquitously signed by high-end American jewelrers. The maker ? Thanks in advance for assistance to be rendered.

I think they were made by Henri Beguelin (sp?), though I don't know if he was a watchmaker or a retailer.

Ben, thanks your input, but it doesn't seem that H Beguelin had made movements of this level

Beguelin was an importer and retailer. The firm did not make watches. The watches they imported were typically very fine.
