BEAUTIFUL VINTAGE MINT MEN'S CIRCA 1970 BUCHERER ALARM WATCH IN 20 MICRON YELLOW PLATED BEZEL WITH STAINLESS STEEL SCREW DOWN CASE, AND A 17 JEWEL SWISS-MADE DARWIL 7071 MANUAL WIND MOVEMENT WITH ALL ORIGINAL PARTS, INCLUDING TWO "B" BUCHERER CROWNS, WITH ALARM FUNCTION AND MOVEMENT RUNNING FLAWLESSLY

FIRST, LET ME EXPRESS MY APPRECIATION TO THOSE WHO VIEW MY AUCTIONS AND PARTICIPATE IN THEM. WE TRY TO ALWAYS PROVIDE A WATCH ALREADY IN MINT CONDITION, OR AS CLOSE TO IT AS WE CAN GET AND I APPRECIATE YOUR GENEROUS FEEDBACK RECOGNIZING THIS FACT. IT IS MY TRAIT, YOUR BENEFIT, THAT I AM A PERFECTIONIST. AGAIN, THANK YOU FOR YOUR VISITING AND BIDS!

I'M ALWAYS LATE FOR THE PARTY, BUT THEN AGAIN, I DO LIKE TO MAKE A BIG ENTRANCE. SORRY AGAIN FOR THE LATE NIGHT LISTING, BUT IT WAS MY DAUGHTER'S BIRTHDAY.

AS WE GET READY FOR FATHER'S DAY, I ALWAYS KEEP MY PROMISES, AND HERE IS THE FIRST OF MANY BUCHERERS HEADED YOUR WAY, SO LET'S GET THE PARTY STARTED WITH A BANG, THE ALWAYS HARD TO FIND ( ESPECIALLY IN MINT CONDITION ) ALARM WATCH!! THE CHRONOMETERS WILL FOLLOW TOMORROW.


Presented for your bidding, and a centerpiece of any luxury/dress, and most important, to that subset of collectors who covet it, is a NO RESERVE SEVEN DAY AUCTION for a STUNNING 1970 VINTAGE era BUCHERER in MINT condition, ALARM mechanical movement watch, using a 17 jewel Swiss movement, the DARWIL caliber 7071. As always, the ALL SWISS movement and alarm function are running flawlessly after a full overhaul, and SHINING brightly, as I both re-plated the watch over the original 20 micron GOLD plating to remove all signs of wear and buffed out ALL but a dot or two ( pictured ) on the back of the watch which shines like a clear pool.

For those not familiar with the movement, it is an ALL SWISS-MADE movement, as Bucherer used mainly the ETA or AS movements for their automatics, but used other brands for their complications. It was manufactured for export to the Italian and Eastern European markets, and they are known for being trustworthy and reliable time-keepers. Then again, what else would you expect from one of the highest-end retailers and makers of fine watches, the venerable House of "Bucherer".

Make no mistake about Bucherer, who makes as many Chronometers as Omega, it is a high quality precision watch utilizing style, fashion, and function, to deliver a beautiful watch, that keeps accurate and precise mechanical time.


Bucherer is one of the premier Swiss-made watch Houses, dating back to the nineteenth century, and is sold in the high end stores throughout Europe earning the designation, the "Tiffany of Europe".

Don't worry again about finding that STUNNING watch for any important watch collection ( WHAT COLLECTION IS COMPLETE WITHOUT AN ALARM WATCH OR TWO, THREE,.... ) or occasion, because you have the perfect answer each time in this beautiful and VINTAGE watch which features the big and bold 70's style, and looks as new today as it did FORTY-TWO  (42) years ago, when it was manufactured and put in the jewelry store case! I can assure you, I didn't find it that way, before my perfectionist mania went to work on it. And now here it is, waiting for some lucky new owner, who either already knows, or will learn, that Bucherer and Longines watches are among the best in the world, and very UNDERVALUED, as they run better than some other famous makers. But, have no fear, Bucherer is a well known high-end maker of quality SWISS watches, sold in the finest jewelry stores throughout Europe, namely, "BUCHERER". I confess I am a Bucherer and Longines fan. But then again, all my loyal customers know that already, and are themselves, purveyors and purchasers of this fine brand.

I didn't just do the usual FREE $75 value servicing and lubrication, but put in over $100 in totally overhauling the movement. Why? If you bid at my auctions you know I detest "weasel words" such as "NORMAL WEAR" or sold "AS IS". Wear is wear, and here we spend our profit to give you the best in vintage watches, looking as new as the day it came from the watchmaker's bench. Just check our feedback or past auctions.

The manual movement is running strong and  flawlessly, a word we like to use around here, as is the "CRICKET CHIRPING ALARM FUNCTION". My customer service belief is that anyone is free to spend their money as they see fit, but logic dictates that if you were buying a watch, do you want a fuzzy photo of a scratched watch? I believe you should receive a watch that comes ready to wear, and looks as if it came off the jeweler's bench yesterday. If you agree, then you have come to the right place. We want to become your favorite seller, because we deliver quality, and only quality watches.

We don't use expressions like "as is" or "normal wear" like other sellers, and then you receive a non-working watch that has more scratches than an instant lottery ticket. Instead, we take our time, rehabilitate every function of the watch internally, then move to the outside aesthetics, and at this point, check out my feedback as to the quality of the PERFECT polished beauty you will receive.

With a stunning WHITE dial surrounded by a highly polished double-coated 20 micron yellow gold BEZEL and Stainless-Steel screw down case, it is still understated, and oozes class and luxury. The watch has raised GOLD BATON hour markers, but also has a deep well GOLD outer track chapter ring, which is absolutely UNIQUE, another word we like to use. All parts are the 100% originals, including the distinctive "B" for Bucherer DUAL CROWNS, the lower recessed crown for manual winding and setting the watch, the upper crown for setting the ALARM function. The watch has GOLD hour, minute, and center sweep hands. The alarm hand is BLACK.  Also found on the dial, which is signed "Bucherer", is the famed Bucherer SEAL & CREST which appears under the 12 o' clock position, and the remark, in script no less, ALARM, above the 6 o'clock position. By the way, this is the original MINT dial!!

SIMPLY STUNNING!!

ALL OF THIS IS COMPLEMENTED BY A HIGH-END BLACK LEATHER WATCHBAND, done in alligator grain.
Anyone who sees YOUR WATCH, will believe they are looking at a watch worth the thousands that the newest Bucherer watches sell at, though I think this one is far more subtle and beautiful.

If you don't know Bucherer, just ask at any jewelry store. If you are here, I assume I have nothing to explain to a connoisseur of Vintage high-end mechanical watches.

Shown from every angle possible, the rear of the watch is also marked with the serial number: 40.108

Always serviced, always put on a vibrograph, always a high-end watch band,  we seek to keep you as a satisfied customer and appreciate your interest in our auctions, so we do whatever is necessary to present a hassle-free watch.

The watch measures 36mm across, excluding the crown and 40mm lug tip to tip, giving it a very large look, after all, we're talking the 1970's here :) It accommodates an 18mm watch band.


This is an auction you don't want to miss. Bid early and often because it is a beautiful high-end watch in MINT condition, becoming more rare each day, especially if you are a fan of Bucherer, as I am. The maker, BUCHERER, is one of the most respected watch companies in the world, and this is a high-end SWISS-MADE PRECISION watch from a top Watchmaking House.                              


REMEMBER, WE NEVER BELIEVE IN PHRASES LIKE "AS IS". WE AREN'T AFRAID TO BACK OUR WATCHES, AND IF IT ISN'T AS REPRESENTED, YOU GET YOUR MONEY BACK.
