Footnotes

  • In 1888, the Non-Magnetic Watch Co. of America purchased the American and Canadian wing of the Geneva Non-Magnetic Watch Co. This included the exclusive right to use the Paillard non-magnetic compensation balance and hairspring, a palladium alloy 'magnetically immune' balance and hairspring developed by Charles-Auguste Paillard, who had previously been a régleur (final adjuster) for Patek, Philippe & Co. The movements were available in a number of varying grades until the company went into receivership on February 15th, 1890.
