My hypothesis to this watch/movement: The "Figaro" could be just the name for the watch model as it is mentioned just below the model "Ego" in the 1923 catalog. The "Ego" is fitted with the movement "H" which has a pivot staff and for the "Figaro" it says movement with 3 jewels so that a pointed staff can be assumed. This would deem the possibility that the movement "H" was also produced with 3 jewels and a pointed staff. One argument for this hypothesis is that the driving train theeth numbers are the same for the "H" and the alleged "Figaro" movement. Second argument is that the "Ego" is in catalog group 51 and the "Figaro" is in group 52.
