Bucherer Lucerne 18k Gold Dress Watch


Lesser seen Swiss brand Bucherer (originally partnered to Rolex as a retailer), 18k solid gold case with straight lugs and a bubble back case. Two tone dial features Arabic numerals, a textured rim and raised gold studs. Rare ETA 1256 movement only manufactured between 1950-1954 complete with Incabloc shock resistance. The watch has seen minor cosmetic defect in places, with the bracelet showing small signs of rubbing. N.b. the spring-loaded links show signs of sag/stretch, though this does not hinder everyday wear. The case preserves its shape and condition beautifully, with the lugs especially highlighting this.
