Non-functional 70s piece off a local auction website. Might pick up if the price stays low. What would be your evaluation of provenance/repairability (esp. see mechanism)?
The smiley-face bicompax day date arrangements seem rather interesting, and practical as well.
No idea, however, whether this is someone's Frankenstein attempt at making his own chronograph, the thing seems like it's been disassembled before.
Radial brushing on the case looks untouched, the dial is rather clean and has a nicely matching sunburst effect.
According to my limited reasearch skills, Arola/Arole chronographs are from Alfred Rochat & Fils, but I've only found other Valjoux 7733 watches from them, and currently they produce stuff based on the more ubiquitous movements.
I'm rather bad at the Ranfft search and couldn't find anything, don't want to make any stupid assumptions, - but I find it strange to see a circular rotor on a chronograph, and that it's marked Baylor Watch Co. Pretty lost here, maybe missing something obvious.
