This Vest Pocket Series III, is similar to this one but has a Diomatic n° 0 shutter. It was named as model “Special” in the catalogue 1928 Photo-Plait

 More amusing in this model is its diaphragm control whose plate, opening by a window, regulates the diaphragms according to the sensitivity of film and the weather.

It really makes think of a chadburn (or télégraphe de pont, in French), instrument which was used to the captain of a ship to transmit its orders to the engine room, since its cabin.
