    Help with Aureole chrono

    Hey,

    I'm looking for some help with this. I'm from the US, in São Paulo Brazil on business. As it's the weekend the two ladies in our group wanted to go to the outdoor antique market and I saw this Aureole chrono. Unfortunately I could only get this one picture today. The seller couldn't get the back off but managed to convey that someone could do it tomorrow (his English was not good and my Portuguese is limited to two bad words). He wants 200 US The case is gold plated and the back stainless. It runs, chrono starts, stops and resets. I'm really interested in the dial and its originality. The crown looks to be a replacement.

    That dial has me worried, especially the way the applied numerals seem to cut off parts of the minute markings at 2, 5, 8 and 10.

    Not a brand worth faking, so not a fake as such, I think. Just a run-of-the-mill 1950s (probably) chrono in a plated case. I'd bet there's a Landeron 48 or a derivative of it inside.

    The second hand (on the subdial at 9) was most likely replaced.

    ok, thanks for the input. I'll do some more research and compare it to other pics.

    Update:

    After looking at lots of pictures and some ended auctions I decided it wasn't a great deal and so didn't go back.
