Default I cant work out what this vintage watch is

Hi
I have recently purchased a watch on ebay, and to be honest i purchased for the case only. however having received the watch i'm quite intrigued by it.

The watch has two pushes on the LHS and the Crown is on the right (when i find one that will fit)

I have taken it apart and i have cleaned it, so it is working correctly, but i can't find any information on the watch at all.

Please let me know if you can identify the watch and the from the images below. Also where i may get a crown and stem would be appreciated.

Looks a lot like this. You must be missing the crown at 3?

Given this connection shown at Mikrolisk, the watch may have been manufactured by G. Vuilleumier & Co of Switzerland which would explain the French marking. Trademark was issued in 1947 so the watch would have been made after that point.

Default Hope you got it cheap

It's pin lever semi fake chronograph

How it works:

If you stop the chronograph. You stop the movement. You can time things with it, but you basically have to reset the time.

You can see an arm near the balance wheel, so when you press the stop button for the sweep hand. Arm connects with balance and stops it and the movement.

I bought one from an old watchmaker back in 1989 for $5.00

Seen some people paying over $100 for one of these on Ebay

No clue who the movement manufacture is, but not worth the time or money fixing it
