Yeah, I got the newsletter from Gedore a few months ago stating that they were going to consolidate everything to a single name--Gedore. Kinda sad that they dropped the other names. I like the names Dako, Habero, Rahsol, etc.

I took the opportunity to take pictures of all the vintage, German-made wrenches in my collection. As you'll see in the pictures below, it includes the Polynova product; it was a line under Belzer--I don't know what era it's from though. Apparently, the 15 degree offset had the Polynova name and the 10 degree versions had a Polygon name to it.
The acronym "DRGM" stands for Deutsches Reich Gebrauchsmuster (German Reich Registered Design). So, the "DRGM" forged onto it is sorta like the German equivalent of "Patented Design"?
For it's size, this 17 x 19mm double-box is quite long; something like 30cm or so.

The whole lot:

Some old Hazet stuff:

Note the changes in the Hazet script over time:
