Please teach me about Victorin Piguet!

Dear.Alex.

I often see this maison by auction catalogues, but there is little information, and I ask you a question about this maison, but am all right?

Victorin Piguet offered ebouche to Patek, Breguet.

Will this maison be still active?

Piguet (1850-1937) founded his firm, "V. Piguet et Frères" in Geneva in 1880,  but returned to his native Le Sentier in 1883. He specialized in highly complicated horological pieces. In 1920, Victorin's sons Jean and Paul Piguet continued the firm under the name "Les Fils de Victorin Piguet". The company specialized in all the complications of the time: minute repeating, grande sonnerie, chronographs and split-seconds chronographs, watches with date, moon phases, sun rise and setting, equation of time alarm and sidereal time watches among others he worked for Patek Philippe and Vacheron Constantin. The firm provided the ebauches of Patek's Graves super complication and PPs perpetual calendars and chronographs.

For VC he supplied chronographe and perpetual calendar ebauches. The movement blank of the Aviator watch hereunder was also supplied by Victorin Piguet.

I can't find anything on the firm post mid 40s and would guess that the firm stopped production at the time. If others have more info please post.
