    what chronograph movement is this?

    Hi
    Can anybody identify this movement?
    It is in a watch without any maker’s identification.
    It has the gold markings for Switzerland (wood grouse) for Germany (half moon and crown) and I think a crab for France?
    To set the time you need to pull the crown and to start and stop you push a button on top of the crown.
    Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you

    I would visit Dr. Ranfft's archive and look for chronograph movements in that size. The size would be pretty limiting and you should be able to search it out if it is there.

    Of course somebody who knows chronographs can probably tell you right off. They have very distinguishing features. But slogging through the pics works too

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

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

    Hi Eeeb
    I went through the chronograph movements on Dr. Ranfft's archive and couldn't find it. This doesnt mean its not there.
    So maybe somebody else knows what it is?
    Thank you

    Well, I know Longines made timers very similar to this but they are way too early (and too rare and valuable) for me to have picked up any. Someone will eventually come along and tell us. Over four million individuals visited WUS last year. One of them knows the answer! LOL
