The Peggy I was introduced in 1931, the model II with the addition of a coupled rangefinder appeared in 1933.

An interesting feature is the way the shutter is tensioned by closing the front standard into the body, later a separate setting on the camera body was used. Both the models I and II were initially produced in a black finish later chrome finish was available at an extra cost. The cameras were distributed in the UK by A. O. Roth.

Lenses available included: f2.8 Tessar, f3.5 Tessar, f2.7 Macro-Plasmat, f3.5 Primotar, f2 Biotar, all of 5 cm focal length.
