    Well, that style of case was popular post WWI through the 20's... I've not seen it in watches much past that but there are probably some. If it is post 1940 I would be very suprised.... But I am suprised every day by something

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    So do I, but the crown seems to be a new replacement part and the overall condition looks tremndous for this time - doesn't mean something's odd. A pic of the movement, showing its condition would be great.

    Chers,

    Hi

    Very good eye, Axel, on the crown.

    Looks like the case was at the very least cleaned and polished, and may have been put through a modest silver or nickel electroplating to get that finish back. The dial looks to be fairly original, but never heard of the brand Sileta (?)

    PS: quite attractive on that band!

    It could be Soleta.
