Lot Essay

Tissot was founded in Le Locle in 1853 by Charles Félicien Tissot and his son Charles-Emile. The firm has been producing high quality watches ever since.

Klumak Brothers in Vienna produced chronometers for the K. u. K. Kriegs-Marine or Kaiserliche und Knigliche Kriegs-Marine, the Austro-Hungarian Imperial and Royal Marine. They were also Tissot's representatives for Austria and Hungary.

For a discourse on the collaboration between Klumak and Tissot see Tissot: 150 Years of History by Estelle Fallet, p. 59.
