    It was a brand of Buser Freres & cie, SA of Niederdorf.

    Many of my pictures were posted via Webshots which has now closed - and so have disappeared from WUS. Sorry.

    Please don't PM me to ask for a valuation - I won't attempt one.

    This one is from 1920's or 1930's,I would say.Probably low grade movement,but would like to see pieces of it.

    Does this watch hold any value? and is it possible to take the back off it?

    We do not do valuations in this forum. Please read our sticky note for reasons why.

    Ok what does the marking mean on the inside of the case the x's? and is there any way to take the case apart as the only way is to open it as shown in the pictures, thanks

    Try to lift the dial, the movement seems to be paired with the dial.
