    Vintage BME watches, info on the brand?

    Hello,

    I've had my eyes on this vintage chronograph watch on ebay, but can't find anything about the brand. It's called BME and is suppose to be swiss as written on the dial, but there are no sources on the internet. Does anyone know anything about this brand? The only images about these watches were the ones below (borrowed from internet), the first one is the one I am interested in:

    Very likely one of the many brands that used generic chronograph movements to make their small brand or private label watches. This one is from the late sixties or the seventies and may well have a Valjoux 7730 or its predecessor Venus 188 in it.

    Wonderful watch! So distinctively 1970s - if only they had made the totalizers a little bigger!
