    Interesting story here:
    Chronosport UDT – a brief review by Elias | MilSpecTime, is the same chronosport you asked about.

    So the WUS thread I linked shows an actually good quality watch brand.

    Interesting. I read through all those threads and still didn't see the watch. Mostly describes Chronosport divers. The one I posted looks more like a Trench/Pilot homage from WWI or before era.

    Dead wrong. It is a Chronosport by Helmut Sinn. And it is the Marine 90.01 as described on the forum where the pic was borrowed from.

    Specs (pls. Use google for translation)

    Kaliber Unitas 6498, Größe 16 1/2''' (36,6 mm), 17 Steine
    Schweizer Ankergang, Incabloc-Stoßsicherung
    18.000 Halbschwingungen in der Stunde (2,5 Hz),
    Handaufzug, Gangreserve ca. 40 Stunden.

    Gehäuse:

    Edelstahl poliert, Bandanstoßbreite 22 mm,
    Zifferblattseite gewölbtes und innen entspiegeltes Saphirglas,
    verschraubter Saphirboden, 10 bar wasserdicht,
    Ø 41,9 mm, Höhe 12,0 mm.

    Zifferblatt: Zifferblattindexe und Zeiger mit Leuchtmasse belegt.

    Funktionen: Stunde, Minute, kleine Sekunde.

    Discontinued, of course.

    Same name but not the same manufacturer. The Chronosport OP posted was made by Helmut Sinn.

    Well it turns out your lead helped! It was made by Mr. Sinn - although apparently by a company called Guinand. [Erledigt] Chronosport (Helmut Sinn) Marineuhr 90.01 mit Signatur H.Sinn! - UhrForum Long since discontinued but they do make a new model 90.03 https://www.guinand-uhren.de/series-90/serie-90.html


    Might need to look into that one :)

    Thanks all!

    Still a good assumption since I didn't see 'Made in Germany' on the dial.
