I'm a newbie to the watch scene so I apologize in advance for any dumb questions...
I received a couple of watches from my late grandfather and one of them is an Alsta. I'm confident it is a diving watch - On the face is says that it has 17 jewels, is automatic, is certified for 999 ft and it has a date function. The bezel doesn't seem to turn and the band has been replaced. The watch is in good working order although I'm sure it needs lubing. On the back is says nautoscaph.
From what i have been able to find on the web, Alsta was Alstater (?). Would anyone have any historical information on Alstater? How prevalent the watches were, etc.
Also, i have been unable to find any pictures of an original to see what type of replacement band I should get for it. (Any recommendations welcome!)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!:thanks
