Below is some Info I found in the Jewelers' Circular mentioning the O.Maire Co.

The Jewelers' Circular, Volume 79, Issue 1 - 1919

SWISS WATCH INDUSTRY

Figures on the Production and Exportation

of Watches, Watch Cases and Movements

During the First Quarter of 1919

S. B. Weiss, of O. Maire & Co., 54 Maiden Lane, New York, who recently returend on the Lapland, from an extended visit to the home factory in Switzerland, brought back some very interesting statistics regarding the Swiss output and export of watchesf watch cases and movements. In an interview with a reporter of The Jeweler Circular, Mr. Weiss also gave a brief account of conditions existing in the watchmaking trade in Switzerland during the past few months.

The shortage in output, which is emphasized in the figures given below, is due greatly to the recent strike of watchmakers, which lasted from the latter part of April until July 20, when the manufacturers acceded to the workers' demands. Formerly the men worked 11 hours a day or 66 hours a week. This was reduced to 55 hours a week and later to 48 hours a week on which basis they are now working. There was no definite wage scale agreed upon, but there is a tendency throughout the trade to meet all the individual demands for increase in wages made by the men and unprecedented wages are now being paid. Owing to these unsettled labor conditions the shortage in the output of watches for the first quarter of 1919 was very serious in a number of cases, as is shown in the comparison with the figures given for the first quarter, 1918.

The following is a table of figures giving the output of complete watches, watch cases and movements for the first quarter 1919, as compared with the same period in 1918.
