Its first movement “Polyplan” came in 1912 but it is also the year the Co. presents their chronographs. In 1914, came the first wristwatch for the soldiers. In 1926 came the “Ermeto”. 1939, comes the M90 movement, then the M95 without forgetting the caliber 478. In 1939 came this prototype in the spirit of the Reverso, a piece of art. 1947, Nathan George Horwitt created a blank dial distinguished only by a gold dot at 12 o’clock.
