If it's who I'm thinking of, Numa Robert-Waelti was not a watchmaker, but rather a talented but little-known 19th-century etablisseur or "finisher". His shop was located in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland.

He would buy parts and movements (he did a lot of business with LeCoultre), and then re-work them and case them to his customer's specifications.
