Wow a rarity indeed. A very cool paintjob, some features still very 60's. Reminded me a little of my 67 Fongers-Rih.

Cyclocross has been a popular Swiss sport from the early years, bringing them a lot of titles in international races. Looking at this footage of Belgium Eric de Vlaeminck winning the WC in '66, there's a slight moment where you can see he's still running an old-fashioned centre-pull brake.

Latter years, there were more and more riders with canti's so I would say the transition-period was during that time.

Btw I don't hope the frame was treated like some ladies do in this 1962 cyclocross race:
