Bourgeaux

screw thread series

 

Also known as Bourgeaux & Delamure. In the 19th century, a screw thread series used in Switzerland for manufacturing watches and clocks. It was realized in screw plates made by Martin, Perrelet et Martin, or Martin Fils. Plates marked “B” are the bourgeaux series. A “G” on the plate indicates left-hand threads.

The series had 26 sizes, from 00 to 24. We have no information on their thread form.
