I'm trying to find the exact specification about the Swiss Valor number pattern. Is there even a pattern or is it just an increasing number?

Wikipedia to the rescue:

Allocation Methodology

The VALOR number is a numeric code that intrinsically has no meaning. When a new VALOR is needed, the next one from the list is simply allocated. An instrument's number indicates nothing about the instrument itself.
