Hélène Jaccard

While reading up on the esteemed V&C régleur Edmond Olivier, I was surprised to learn that during the years 1931 and 32, his partner was a lady by the name of Hélène Jaccard. 

Jaccard is of course a famous watchmaking family including those manufactured in Geneva under the name E.H. Jaccard.  Also of that name was Omega's master régleur from the 1920s through 40s, Alfred Jaccard (pictured below)

Finally, working in Geneva was master watchsmith, Philippe René Jaccard, who made special-order movements for the great houses.  Those with the Lambelet Coen book, Secrets of Vacheron Constantin, will see a picture of his superb 1933 rock crystal 30-day table clock as Reference Photo 3413.

Alex, or anyone for that matter, what can you tell us about this female master adjuster and her family ties?

Wonderful Alex!  With that info we can locate the published 1932 results from the March 1933 issue of La Federeation Horlogere Suisse: Alfred Jaccard was busy with Omega during these trials.  Is Helene his daughter and do you have a picture of our V&C regleuse?  FWIW, the year before in 1931, Olivier captures 1st Prize for V&C as well.
Unfortunately I do not have further info on her and no photos

I can't find much else either, except that Alfred was father to Philippe René.
