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.
