Anyone ever looked into Phenix (S.H. Porrentruy), or their offshoots (Monnin Rebbetez & Cie)?

I’ve noted similarities for early Gruen pockets, maybe potential for an ebauche supplier, but I thought others may have been down this trail before.

Here’s the latest to peak my interest: an early negative set. Sadly, I’ll not be able to share dial side pics.


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

Looked into it, but no real match so far. BUt I have to admit that I did not really look thoroughly, hust scratched the surface dues to many more candidates with making more hopes.
