The WatchExcelsior Park was a major company in the field of stopwatches and chronographs. Created in 1866.
In 1922 Excelsior Park has a range of 32 different stop-watches : tachymeters, pulsometers, with rattrapante, anchor or Roskopf, for football, rugby, water polo, hockey, with ringing for boxing, others for control with revolving bezel what was original for the time, Taylor meter for calculations of production, or the Electro-pointer built in collaboration with M.Chaponnière, official time keeper of the Car-Club of Switzerland.
In 1928 Excelsior Park asserts the title of more important Swiss factory for sport stop-watches. The range still increased with stop-watches for canoeing, car sport, decimal timers, others measuring the hundredth of a second with the hand making a turn in one second. One year later is launched a series of new beautiful movements of chronograph, from 18 to 22 lines. They comprise supplies of spare parts for the repairing.
During the early 1940's they developed cal 40. But if this movement had an important diffusion it is that it was not used only by Excelsior Park. Three other companies used it : Gallet, Zenith and Girard Perregaux.
