    What does "DRP USA PAT" mean?

    I'm in the process of cleaning up a nice Hafis 25j watch with a Felsa 692 movement (http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...uswk&Felsa_692), and I found that stamped on the dial-side of the pillar plate. Ranft lists a number of watches by "Sully" that have a similar stamp (also Felsa's, but different calibers), so I'm not sure if its related to the Felsa rotor patent, or something else. Mine's a Hafis (which was a brand of F. Suter & Cie). Anyone know?

    Dear,
    DRP means: Deutsches Reichs Patent.
    The German equivalent of USA Patent.
    So this pattent was a DRP and a USA patent.

    regards,
    RJ van Melle.
