    Aleure

    This arrived today:




    I kinda liked it when I saw it so I looked Aleure up and found that it was a brand of PIAGET! I found this "A subsidiary brand of Piaget, called Aleure, produced gold electroplated steel watches until 1950. Piaget's Private Collection contains examples of some of the steel, gold-plated, and Aleure watches from this time period." here: http://piaget.watchprosite.com/show-...i-594046/s--2/

    It is gold plated with a stainless steel back. Anyway, I looked inside hoping to find something exotic:



    Its an Eta 900 - so decent but nothing too exciting. If the information above is accurate, it was probably made in the late 1940's.

    Its on a thick leather strap - which its going to stay on. I didn't like the crown, which was newer than the watch, and have put a smaller one on:



    There aren't many of these out there, but no doubt someone will reply to this thread in 3 or 4 years with another one.

    Hi Marrick,

    Very nice radial design dial with nice aging.... I bet you had to splash the pennies to get that one.... gold plated to!

    I didnt expect a 2nd Luxor to turn up so soon.... but one did!!

    Well, Piaget didn't start to make their own movements until the fifties. So up to that time, even the "real" thing (=the main brand) was surviving on generic movements. Though mainly on JLC standard movements rather than the likes of ETA, Adolf Schild and FHF.....

    Cheers. It was expensive - £12.77 + postage from France.

    Its running - but losing a bit of time - and may need to join the service queue.

    Thanks for the information Hartmut. Piaget is a brand I don't normally look at and know nothing about.

    Re: Aleure

    That's rather a nice piece you have there (yet again), I've not seen one before I don't think. You seem to be a magnet for the unusual bargains, well done that man.

    I've got a couple of quite interesting (well to me anyway) ones on route, nothing as high class as your Aleure though! (I bet it was more than 0.01p!!!!)

    I don't know about in the UK but here there's a whole lot of way below average stuff that is going for stupid money on Fleabay at the moment, ho hum

    Welcome to Watchuseek. At the same time, I feel obliged to point out that this is an english speaking forum so please use that language only. Your watch has an ETA 900 series movement.
