Vintage Bucherer Gold, Blue Enamel and Pink Rose Flowers Watch Pendant Necklace - Floral - 17J - Swiss Made - Mechanical - Runs Well! #d466

Regular price $214.00
This fabulous 1960s pendant watch was created by the Carl F. Bucherer company of Switzerland, which was founded in 1888. They are one of the oldest luxury watchmakers and are still operating today with the 3rd generation of family members.

This Bucherer pendant watch is round in shape and the case is finished in a lovely teal blue enamel. The case has a wonderful rose flower theme, with a ring of pink roses with green leaves around the watch dial and a bouquet of pink roses, green leaves and other pink and white flowers on the back. The dial of the watch is white with gold hands and Arabic numerals for the 12, 3, 6 and 9 hours and stick indices for the remainder. The watch is mechanical with a winding/setting crown on the bottom and an attached fluted bail at the top. It has been strung on a long gold rope chain that has a spring ring clasp. The watch wound and the time set properly, and it ran for 24 hours keeping excellent time when compared to my modern Citizen Eco Drive. It's such a gorgeous piece!

The watch measures about 1 3/4 inches long (including its bail) and 1 3/16 inches wide. It is signed with the Bucherer logo , with the name "Bucherer", with 17 Jewels and with "Swiss Made" on the watch dial. It is stamped "Metal Swiss Made" on the inside of the back cover of the case. The watch movement is marked with the words "Seventeen", "17 Jewels" , "3 Adjustments", "Bucherer" and "Swiss". The chain is about 28 inches long and 2.5mm wide. It is marked "Amerikaner" and "Metal" on its attached ring. The combined weight of the pieces is 23.9 grams.

I love the floral theme of this fabulous Bucherer timepiece! It's beautiful, highly collectible and would make a great addition to a vintage watch collection. The watch is in excellent vintage condition and looks almost new. The bail does have finish wear (photo #9) and there is one odd link in the chain (photo #9) where the chain sits behind the bail when the necklace is worn. This may have held a clip, but it doesn't detract and is hidden by the bail if the clasp is centered on the back of the neck. It's a beautiful, well running watch pendant that shows very well and looks even more lovely in person!
