Here are tree of mine. Not super-rare but also not totally mainstreem and quite affordable IMO.
That Yema is quite Autavia-like - not bad.
A nice Nivada Grenchen, have been looking for one of those for some time..
This one is so far off the beaten path that you can't even see the faint trail leading to the path.
I very much like the dial - it is in wonderful condition. Inside beats the famous Baumgartner 67x movement, a chrono known for its rudimentary design and crude execution. Quirky -no doubt about it!
Here is an unusual chronograph concept: besides the chronograph second hand also the minute counter hand is from the center - hence the name of the watch Mido "Multicenter chronograph"
That is a very nice watch and dial!
May I join in the fun? It is not a chronograph, but still good for timing. A 1966 rattrapante timer.
Can some member identify this one ....
That's got me beaten. Any chance of a photo that's in-focus?
Not the most exciting, but I just learned that this Atlantic Skipper uses a very rare variant of the 7750, the 7757. I always wondered why it was so thin (~11mm).
Here's the link to the write up:
Some great Chronographs here!

Not to mention having 7 hands + day date.

Omega Speedmaster 376.0822; last evolution using Lemania - auto, day/date, 24hr - moonwatch case.
Lemania SAAF; issued to the South African Air Force in the early eighties, nice slim count-down bezel and deleted chrono hour hand - powered by slower beated 5100 - the 5012.
Heuer Bund Sternzeit; the classic Bund in rare form - regulated to sidereal time for positioning of artillery units.
Sinn 156; this is an early one without the 24hr hand at 12 o'clock.
Sinn EZM1 LE: the last generation of EZM1.
Sinn EZM1 ZUZ; one of the first EZMs - issued.

I think there used to be a German watchmaker that altered the case shell into a conventional lugged case - very interesting.
