At the risk of coming across as a smart-ass, a quick Google of my favourite French real estate site yielded this ...


and translated from the text ...

"The site was acquired in 1911 by Juda Simon (1879-1959), of Greek origin, who has a sales counter at 14 rue de Rivoli in Paris (it will be at n ° 120 of the same street at the end of the 1930s, at 70 rue La Fayette in 1926) and in 1923 had offices in La Chaux-de-Fonds (66 rue Léopold-Robert). It produces watches under the brands Alta, Evzona, Mirande, Radia, Sim, Tempograph and Ortho-Magnétique."

Needs a bit more research I think to establish what had happened by the time your watch was made, but it's a start.


Well now, just how good is that? Kinda French and kinda Swiss.

Thank you, my dear @spinynorman
