When Descombes died in 1897, Ulysse-Georges Perret teamed up with Louis-Edouard Berthoud. In 1917 "Perret and Berthoud" presents the first chronograph wristwatch. During the crisis of the 30s they joined forces with a group of investors and created as well the company "Perret & Berthoud SA Universal Watch CO." A la mort de Descombes en 1897, Ulysse-George Perret s’associe à Louis-Édouard Berthoud, reprend "Descombes & Perret" avec la marque Universal Watch. En 1917 "Perret et Berthoud" présente le premier chronographe sous forme de montre-bracelet. Pendant la crise des années 30, ils s’allient à un groupe d’investisseurs et ainsi naît la société "Perret & Berthoud SA Universal Watch CO".
