This 1950s Chalet auto today, running on a 21j AS 1361N.

There are several recorded makers of a “Chalet” brand, but with this example having no Import Code and the dial offering only plenty of patina but no obvious clues as to origin, I’m unable to attribute it to any particular one.

New in, bought for interest as much as anything. I haven't seen an Allaine with a black dial very often, if at all. It has a 20 microns plated case and an ETA 2452 with roulette date wheel, which is running beautifully. On the back it says "Norexa", which, by the 1960s, was based in Geneva and used ETA movements rather more than Allaine did. So, :hmmm9uh:
