    The history of Solvil & Titus goes back to the Ditisheims, who were a legendary Swiss watchmaking family.
    Maurice Ditisheim founded the Vulcain company in 1858. His son Paul worked for Vulcain and then left it at age 24 to start Solvil & Titus in 1892.
    Paul Ditisheim was a Victorian era Renaissance man - watchmaker, inventor, research scientist. His pocket chronometers are highly collectible items and his company made some beautiful art deco watches in the 1920s and 1930s.
    Your watch appears to be a S&T quartz model, probably from the early 1980s. I don't have any more information on the particular one you have. Sorry.
