Notes

Lilttle is known about White Star, a company based in La Chaux de Fonds that belonged to Weiss & Co. Founded in 1895. This rarely seen model called the Diagraphic used a special indicator using a sunshine to indicate the day. Never used a rare opportunity to acquire a watch still in new condition.
