    Hi Bobbee.

    Thanks for the answer. Does it means that Louis Frechelin did ebauches and Hoffmann finished the movement?

    I was trying all kind of combinations of the L. Frechelin name (what I red on movement) but nothing works. You would die loughing. Thanks again

    Hoffman may be just the retailer, and had their name stamped on the bridge and added their own dial.

    Looking at info on Henri Hoffman of Geneva, it appears that he may be an import/exporter, as there are too many differences in the movements contained in the watches that have his name on them.

    Cheers, Bob.

    This is possible. But I did not expect retailer's name on the movement. Only Tiffany did it. As I know.
    Normaly you have retailer name on dial and producer on the movement. But...
    Thanks again
