    I am thinking it is a Valjoux 77 in this one but I am not sure, please help. Also, I have no info on LOUIS/Swiss chronographs and couldn't find much, please let me know if you guys have any.
    The case is 32mm x 38mm from lug end to lug end, 12.5mm thick and 17.5mm lugs; on the dial: LOUIS and under 6, SWISS; on the movement: LOUIS WATCH CO INC., SEVENTEEN 17 JEWELS, SWISS UNADJUSTED, FXW; inside the back cover: STEEL BACK SWISS, LOUIS WATCH CO INC, C48C4F; on the outside of the back case: FOND ACIER INOXIDABLE, 307955.
    Winds and keeps time perfectly, it has not been cleaned or worked on, as I found it in a watchmaker's estate. Please help me with more insight guys I need it. The pushers are stuck, do not work, needs a good cleaning...

    This one has a "Venus" movement in it, perhaps a cal 170, with some parts missing. The Venus logo (star) is on the balance bridge.
