Vintage Bucherer Gold Embossed Floral Watch Pendant Necklace - 17J - Swiss Made - Mechanical - Runs Well! #d504

Regular price $179.00
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 with a gold finish. The case has a wonderful embossed floral theme with other designs on both the front and back. The dial of the watch is light gold with black hands and sophisticated stick indices for the hours. The watch is mechanical with a winding/setting crown on the bottom and an attached ring bail at the top. It is attached to its original long, gold box chain that has a dog clip and 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 marvelous piece!

The watch measures about 1 1/8 inches in diameter. It is signed with the Bucherer logo , with the name "Bucherer", and with "Swiss Made" on the watch dial. It is stamped "Bucherer Swiss" and "999 6" on the inside of the back cover of the case. The watch movement is marked with the words "Seventeen Jewels", "Unadjusted", "Bucherer" and "Swiss". The chain is about 31 1/2 inches long and 2mm wide. It is marked "Amerik" and with what appears to be "B + S" maker's mark on its attached ring. The combined weight of the pieces is 26.9 grams. I believe the watch and chain are either gold filled or gold plated, which was common for these Bucherer watch necklaces.

This Bucherer watch necklace is so gorgeous! It's beautiful, highly collectible and would make a great addition to a vintage watch collection. The watch is in excellent vintage condition, very bright gold and looks almost new. It's a beautiful, well running watch pendant that shows very well and looks even more lovely in person!
