Almost nothing is known about this watch. The company Fatzer was founded in 1836 in Romanshorn, Switzerland and is known for its wire ropes that provide reliable service on the largest cable cars, lifts and aerial tramways on the planet. Fatzer has been producing ropes of the highest quality for generations. Initially, hemp ropes were manufactured for agriculture, fishing and shipping. Around 1900, the production of steel wire ropes began in addition. We assume that this clock was custom-made at Sivana as a gift for one of the Fatzer family members.

Established in the Jura mountains for over a century, Silvana ranks among brands which have contributed to watchmaking's renown. The first watches to bear the Silvana name were made by Victor-Eugène Bahon in 1898 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, the cradle of Swiss watchmaking. The brand was officially registered in 1921 and quickly went on to success all over the world. Alongside watches for men, Silvana's founder – no doubt with his own four daughters in mind – developed over the years a large collection of ladies’ watches. Silvana is now positioned chiefly in the women's segment, although men certainly are not forgotten.
