    “The Compagnie Industrielle de Mecanique Horlogere registered the name Jaz as a trademark in 1919 and used this until 1941 when a bird figure was added above the name. The clock dates somewhere between 1960 and 1965 as the little trademark bird is present with his tail pointing upwards.” — maintenant

      Lovely clock but bird with tail up dates it as 1967 – 1975. Tail down is 1942 –1967.

      I have to agree with the previous comment. The age is wrong – tail up 1967–1975; Tail down 1942–1967; no bird at all is pre 1942. I do get a bit fed up of incorrect information.
