A nice looking watch, 1960's? there or there abouts? Have you found out much about it from any serial numbers etc...

According  to our resident Oracle @Always"watching" it dates from circa 1960. Leonidas bought up Heuer and gradually the Leonidas name fell out of use.

Just looked the company up and they seem to have been a top quality watch maker and saw how they were connected with Heuer. However they didn't keep with the times and Tag became the focus. Well, looks like recently they got with the times. They don't seem to have the same great designs as the classics you guys have, oh well, good finds it seems.
