    information about watch brand "Ard"??

    Hi all,
    I am interested in picking up a vintage chronometer. I ran across this. I can't find any information online. Does anyone recognize the brand "Ard"?

    No, but I can tell you that the movement is by Reymond Freres (Valjoux) who made some of the best generic chronograph (not chronometre) movements. This one is probably a Cal. VZ:

    As for the brand, I'm sorry but that's too 'Ard for me (pardon the pun)!

    It is a very nice Chronograph.
    I too can not find anything on 'ARD'
    But do NOT get hung up about that, there are many, many uknown Swiss brands
    Great movement, Lovely dial (looks all original I think) - Like the blue grading scale on the tachometer - that looks very interesting (different)
    Enjoy
