    Reminds me of the LePhare movements (somewhat similar). Should be a 30 minute repeater. Can you show us a picture of the dial (although there is most like no brand name on it)?

    Marius Ami Meylan was the son in law of Alfred Lugrin who changed the company name to 'Lemania'.

    Here is the dial, don't pay attention about the dirt and hands...the important thing is that has no hairllines, no cracks...
    Will receive also a minute and hour hand...and a new glass...



    Still looking a similar machine but nothing...

    Keep in mind that back in this era, a lot of chronographs were made as comission pieces, and basically involved an independent watchmaker starting with a finished (or mostly finished) pocket watch movement (made by his apprentices, typically), to which he'd add the chronograph pieces. As chronographs grew in popularity, some small shops began to specialize in that exclusively; they would get their base pocket-watches from somewhere else, and use a pre-designed "kit" of chronograph parts. I believe it was even possible to "buy" just the (mostly) finished chronograph parts, which could then be added to pretty much any suitable 3/4 plate movement.

    Point being that it isn't always easy to trace the lineage of these; there may have been three or four different watchmakers involved.
