The "Recoreder" brand was used by A. Wittnauer, but this split seconds chronograph was built by Reymond-Rod & Aeschlimann.
Watchmaking specializing in chronographs, repetition and calendar watches. Founded in October 1893 by Emile Reymond-
Rod and Henri Aeschlimann based in Saint Imier with two patents relating to chronographs with split seconds and another with an hour counter. Evidently they were ingenious because they were often cited in the bibliography of subsequent patents. The trademark "Mont Soleil" or "Sonnenberg" in German registered in 1904. CH_7411_A.jpg

This chronograph is not rare, it is very rare. I doubt that there are spare parts, perhaps with luck you can find another similar one. But very difficult.
