Hello,

Can someone tell me what the two buttons on the left are for??
They look like something off a chronograph, but the dial is a plain one.

Is it just frankenwatch with a chrono case? or is it something I am not familiar with?
sorry for the bad image quality

Looks like a "Chronostop"; the buttons move the lever you see in the middle of the movement, which has a finger on it that presses against the balance wheel to stop it. This allows you to use the second hand of the watch (which is missing, by the way) as a sort of crude stop-watch (note that stopping the second hand stops the entire watch, so...)

The movement itself is a very simple pin-lever, possibly a Rego 145 or 147: bidfun-db Archive: Watch Movements : Rego 147
