Good evening,

Thank you for your kind help

It seems like there were a lot of chronographs retailed by relatively obscure brands. I can't make out what's on the dial, but I'm guessing this would be an example of that. With these watches, what matters is the movement. If you can post a picture, I'd be somebody can tell you who made the movement and what caliber it is.
Real men wear small watches.

That's a nice looking old chronograph, a picture of the movement would be useful. As for the brand there were many retailers who simply contracted to have a watch made and their name put on it.

Well your movement appears to be a Landeron 39 and a quick Google search found an example that's pretty much identical to your watch. I've never heard of IPI Watch Company before but there are obviously some out there.
