A Charming Buren Dress Watch With Gilt Dial Furnishings and a Recessed Sub-Seconds Counter, Beautifully Aged Dial with Quarter Roman Numerals, c.1953

Buren Watches, renowned for their precision and elegance, boast a rich history dating back to the late 19th century. Established in 1877 by Léon Breitling in Buren, Switzerland, the company initially focused on producing pocket watches. However, their innovative spirit led them to venture into wristwatches as the demand for portable timekeeping devices grew. In 1919, Buren Watches partnered with movement manufacturer Aegler to develop and produce high-quality movements.

This collaboration resulted in the creation of some of the world's thinnest and most accurate watch movements at that time. Over the years, Buren Watches gained recognition for their exceptional craftsmanship and technological advancements. In 1966, they introduced the world's first automatic micro-rotor movement—a breakthrough in watchmaking history. The brand continued to evolve and innovate until it was acquired by Hamilton Watch Company in 1966.

What’s On Offer 

This 1950s Buren dress watch is in fantastic condition considering its age of over 70 years! The dial has aged beautifully and boasts gilt furniture including quarter Roman numerals, slim pencil hands and a recessed seconds counter at 6 o'clock. The dial is encapsulated underneath an acrylic crystal which has been well-preserved. The case is crafted from stainless steel and is also in superb shape with nice faceted lugs. At 34mm this watch is mid-size, it wears beautifully on the wrist and is running well after a service from our watchmaker. A very nice vintage piece that will sit well in any collection and look great for every occasion.
