    Hi CW Gang:

    Just an old watch I have here. It says the following things on it:

    ~ BUREN GRAND PRIX
    ~ 25 JEWELS
    ~ SHOCK PROTECTED
    ~ SWISS MADE
    ~ __ Gold ( I think it is 14 kt gold it says )??
    ~ and the makers make, which I can not tell what it is.

    Just thought I would post. Any other info appreciated. What would be the date of this piece? Guess I should also check out the mesh band to see IF any marks on that too.....LOL.....DOH !!

    Thanks for LOOKING // LOVING !!!!

    ~ Rose ~

      Very pretty! The case is 14k gold, not the entire watch.:-))) The band is most likely rolled gold. Take it to a watchmaker who can open the back - there may be a serial number on it.

      Buren: A Thumbnail Description
      From 1899 to 1932, Buren was the Swiss factory of H. Williamson, Ltd, an English company. Williamson, bought a watch factory in Switzerland and created the Buren Watch Company. A number of models in standard sizes were offered. Ads in the 1920's proclaimed Buren to be "The Perfect Watch" and boasted of the linking up of Swiss watch manufacturing with British Enterprise and Capital. This came to an end during the Great Depression and Buren came to be an independent Swiss firm. This occurred in 1932 when the employees bought the plant and it became The Buren Watch Co., Switzerland. On March 1, 1966 Buren Watch Co. was acquired by the Hamilton Watch Co. and the Swiss factory became Buren Watch Hamilton. Production came to an end in 1972.
