    Not this one but the movement looks like one used by Olech & Wajs at one time.
    I'll see if I can find an image.


    Ahh knew I had one..

    Just tweaked the brightness of the original. More detail now visible.

    I don't know who makes, but definitely funky.

    Obviously a comparatively cheapo chrono with dial-side chronograph works on a pin pallet lever movement. Movement probably by Rego (compare http://www.ranfft.de/cgi-bin/bidfun-...&uswk&Rego_147 for a picture). Unusual placing of the chronograph subdials, though - but the TDB-K calibre is even stranger!

    Thanks everyone for your replies!

    Didn't know O&W used such movements in their watches before!

    Cheers!

    The problem with watches using the Rego/Cimier/Lapanouse chrono, or its competitors from Bettlach and Baumgartner, is that they look like fun watches to own, but usually sold at a price more appropriate for a Venus or Valjoux Once you factor in the maintenance costs, it is rarely worth it.
