Germinal Voltaire watches have quite an interesting story. You may see claims on other sites that this brand has a storied lineage from 1848. The truth is these watches were part of a mid-century American hustle! You can read more details on their history at Germinal Voltaire. Note that the A. Schild (AS) movements used in these watches are very high quality and widely respected. But from the 19th century? Not a chance. They are quite rare.
