    I don't know anything about that watch, William, but it is a very good looking time piece.

    Search for Chronographe Suisse watches. This is one in a chrome-plated case--there are many similar watches out there, and they were made in mass quantity.

    The right sub-dial's hand is a replacement and isn't correct. Looks like the other sub-dial hand may be correct and has only lost plating.
