Watchmaker's tool

Watchmaker's tool of unknown purpose - more information required. It appears to be a punch of some sort. Four small punches of slightly different shapes are mounted in a row in the centre of the jaws, possible for punching holes through a strap? They close into corresponding holes on the opposite jaw. A fifth punch or cutter with a sharp angled end is mounted at the end of the jaws. The handle is stamped ACIER FONDU with a name partly obscured by rust (L HUGONIDE?).
