It's possible that Schneeberger-Calame produced cases for IWC and for a short period applied his own trade mark. In fact the first IWC trade mark for cases was registered February 13, 1888 and the layout of the punch is this:The layout is similar to that of Pallweber with the only substitution of the trade mark to the left. In my opinion, it may be that Schneeberger-Calame produced cases for IWC and, for a short period in 1887 and early in 1888, applied his own trade mark. Later it was applied the new IWC trade mark. So, if this is correct, to find other cases with the trade mark SC we must look for IWC watches made in 1887 and early in 1888.
