I can only find one of these watches for sale at the moment  at a much higher price. The history of Bucherer is quite interesting;

In 1888, Carl Friedrich Bucherer established his first boutique selling watches and jewelry in Lucerne, Switzerland. In 1919, Carl Friedrich Bucherer launched his first ladies’ watch collection in the art deco style. He is one of the first watchmakers to adopt the watch strap, which at the time was still a revolutionary concept. By 1948, the company was focusing on sporty chronographs that prominently displayed the current date.[3]

By 1968, Carl F. Bucherer had manufactured around 15,000 high-precision, certified chronometers, making the company one of the top three Swiss producers of these specialized timepieces. In 1969, the company became part of a Swiss consortium for the development and production of the first quartz movement for wristwatches, the Beta 2.

This watch has just come back from servicing and is running as it should with a crisp chrono action.

The watches supplied with a new leather strap , a 12month warranty a certificate of authenticity and the presentation box supplied.

Please feel free to ask for postage rates as we can ship around the world and are always happy to consider a PX.

Price: 1800
