Le Locle watchmaker Robert Cart specialized in “Heures Sautantes” Jump Hour complications for Swiss manufactures including Breguet and Vacheron & Constantin, as well as private jewellers such as Gübelin and Luthi. According to the eminent authority Bernard Humbert, in his 1954 book Modern Calendar Watches, Cart's watches were "of extremely high quality, the calendar mechanism being hand-made.
