Niton supplied movements to the likes Of Patek Philippe, Van Cleef & Arpels, A. Lange & Sohne, Breguet, Cartier and Vacheron Constantin to name a few through the 20's and 30's. Only 24 Jump hour movements are known

Notice; This jump hour pocket watch is the second one known to the public. Because there are two timepieces with the same serial number (5355) one of the two is in all probability movement serial number 5255 which obtained the Poincon de Geneve quality seal on June 23, 1928 and was part of a batch of 6 (5255-5260). Or this one is a forgery.
