    Lauris Apollo

    So this guy arrived today:

    Dr. Google isn't being very helpful, so I thought I'd see if anyone here had any clues about the brand and a guess at how old it might be.

    Re: Lauris Apollo

    Is this a contest of some type, where you ask for help while providing the least possible amount of information?

    Obviously, this would be tremendously easier with more photos. However, I'll stick my neck out and guess late 1960s/early 1970s, with a Valjoux 7733 inside. If I'm completely wrong, at least nobody can say I was timid.

    Very nice condition, by the way.

    Not at all, I was just hopeful that someone had seen one of these before. I don't have a tool for opening it safely, otherwise I would have had a look for myself.

    The best I've been able to find is a reference to the Lauris Trading Company https://catalogue.nla.gov.au/Record/61636 and part of a lot on ebay that seems to be that book
