The mention "Bte SGDG" is the abbreviation of "without government guarantee", a legal statement by which the government disclaims all responsibility for the proper functioning of the patented device. This mention, instituted by a law of 1844, disappeared in 1969 and thus constitutes an important chronological marker in French watchmaking and jewel history.
