    It certainly has the most unusual chronograph dial I have seen in a long time! You often see that sort of bicolor dial on ordinary watches of that era (late forties, early fifties) but not on chronographs.....

    i think its one of those cheap pin/lever chronographs that are only really a stop/start watch that were branded under Sheffield, Kingston, Lucerne, etc in 50s/60s. They are quite crude but effective. I owned 2. Now 1.

    Yes Hartmut I was solely attracted to the cool looking dial.

    Hmmmmm. The pin lever chronographs I've seen generally have the subdials at 7:30 and 10:30 so I doubt that it's one of those. Not impossible, though.

    I don't think so, it has a 30 minute counter
    What ever it is a very cool looking watch. I like it.

    after another look I have to say-the lugs are quite fancy and don't look anything like the typical alumina/cast cases I've seen on the pin/lever stop watches. a movement shot would clear it all up though.

    The auction blurb says, manual wind Universal movement. Sorry no pics. Also the start bid is 700 euros!

    Universal movement? Must be a decent column wheel movement from Martel Watch Co. (suppliers of Universal Geneve as well as Zenith). Well worth a bit of cash - but 700 Euros as a starting bid sounds a little steep. Especially when there is no way of verifying the claim.
