Vintage Bucherer Gold & Teal Enamel Floral Folk Art Watch Pendant Necklace - Flowers - Lady and Man - Mechanical - Runs Well! #d455

Regular price $201.00
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 folk art theme, with red and yellow flowers with green leaves surrounding the watch dial and a scene of a woman and a man amongst flowers on the back. The dial of the watch is white with gold hands and sophisticated gold stick indices for the hour markers. 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 bar link 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 fantastic 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 "17 Rubis" , "4 Adjustments" and "Swiss". The chain is marked "Amerikaner" and "Metal" on its attached ring. The combined weight of the pieces is 26.2 grams.

I love the traditional folk art 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, with the exception of some enamel loss to the edges on the back of the case (see photo #10). These areas are not very noticeable and don't detract from the beauty of this fine piece. The chain does have finish wear to the clasp and on the links at the back of the chain near the clasp, which would be the high use/contact areas of the chain (photo #10). It could be easily strung on another gold chain if desired. It's a beautiful, well running watch pendant that shows very well and looks even more lovely in person!
