    Does anyone recognize the maker of this piece? It is a 3 button chronometer, Swiss made in a stainless steel case with snap back. I see no markings on the dial, inside of case back, or on the movement itself.
    Thanks,
    Doug

    Not a chronometer, it is a chronograph. Sometimes there is a small shield mark that will tell the maker of the ebauche.

    Oops! I knew that. This should probably be moved to the "wristwatches" board. Moderator perhaps?

    I checked out the Lemania listings on Ranfft. It looks similar to some, but not exactly. Here is a photo of the dial side. Still no markings or ebauche stamp, other than Brevet, which I understand to mean patent. Strange?!
