Buren Divers' Watch - Calibre ST96 - c.1960s


A superb mid to late 1960’s Buren divers watch in a polished stainless steel case with black bi-rotational bezel. Very clear black dial with luminous Arabic numerals at 12, 6 and 9 positions and luminous batons at the other hour positions and a date setting at 3 o’clock. There are also 24-hour number markers inside/below the 12 hour markers. This watch has a robust Calibre ST96 also known as an FHF 96, mechanical hand wind movement with 17 jewels. Stainless steel hour, minute and seconds hands all with fantastic luminous inlays that have aged wonderfully and even.

This watch is not the typical looking chunky watch normally associated with divers watches. Overall the watch is in very good condition for a 1960’s "tool" watch.
