Good addition, Matt. Looks like the same click used on the 130.

Interesting to see the Favre letter ā€œLā€ in same font as the Delphia from the 151 thread. That from the mid 20s, this from the mid teens. Maybe fits the letter font theory: ~1916-18 here, 1926-28 there.

Thanks for sharing!


My two caveats:
1) I'm wrong many times a day --just ask my wife!
2) Always seeking to learn more

Again, confirmation on Favre, it is a version of #2:

As you can see in the design registrations these were just example pictures for the same base designs in different sizes: "en toutes grandeurs". ONe of the reasons why the pictures sometimes slightky differ from one or the other movement.
