1970's Bucherer Vintage Mens Officially Certified Chronometer Watch - Stainless Steel


Item No. VR1

Today's offering showcases this cool and uncommon chronometer watch retailed by Bucherer.

For those not familiar with the company, Bucherer was one of Switzerland 's premier watch retailer similar to Tiffany & Co. here in the States. Like many watches made for Tiffany, Cartier, and other high-end retailers, the watch was made by Swiss watch firms and privately labeled with the retailers name.

Besides having a great look, this watch is an officially certified chronometer, meaning like most Rolex or Breitlings it has had to pass very strict tests by an independent body (the COSC). The movement is based on the ETA 2824, an accurate and reliable workhorse. Nicer watches like those from Baume & Mercier and Tudor use this movement, as do cheaper brands like Hamilton.

The watch has a waterproof style case, and the automatic movement has a quick-setting date.

It has been cosmetically restored to a very high level by a recent true expertly done restoration. On the wrist it presents virtually like a new watch.

The movement is running strong and true and was overhauled approximately five years ago when we first sold the watch - it continues to keep time nearly on par with a new Rolex chronometer.

It is part of the discerning collection that we are selling for a renowned paediatrician. A great watch that won't break the budget.

Included with the purchase is a 90-day international warranty on the movement and its function, a custom printed Connoisseur of Time Certificate of Authenticity, and a timing certificate attesting to its performance.
