    Have you looked through Dr. Ranfft's archive for a match on the movement? That's where I would start.

    This looks pre-WWII to me.
    "Forever is composed of nows." - Emily Dickinson

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    Not necessarily. Looks like a Lemania movement to me, possibly Cal. 19NP:

    I believe (but don't quote me) that the "kilometer" markings became common as a result of widespread use of motor cars, and that chronographs like this were often used by rally teams.

    It may have been used for this purpose, but is not sure.It would be interesting if watches could tell us their entire history.What horrors have taken part in military watches?Passed through the hands pocket watches?What we learn from some ladies watches?????I'm a little off-topic, but it's nice to dream and do not cost anything.All the best!
