Notes

Dimier et Cie is recorded as being active around 1835 in the rue Croix d'Or 27; they exported small watches in gilt brass, or gold and enamel, and cases often with a floral, pearl-set decor. They are further recorded at Quai des Bergues,31 in 1857 and Quai des Etuves, 31, in 1860. "Dictionnaire des Horlogers Genevois", Antiquorum Editions, 1998.
