At one time the Swiss claimed that, while working in NYC, Pierre Ingolds ideas for mass producing watches were "stolen" from him. Indeed, the claim was he was "thrown out" of the U.S. circa 1840. Their reasoning went: Therefore mass production of watches is a Swiss invention. The speculation that there was contact between the two. Anything further uncovered?
