    Without a picture of the movement, not much to say... Is it quartz or mechanical? Bucherer was making watches with high quality generic movements, so if it's mechanical, it's probably an ETA or something like that, with a regulateur module. Bucherer nowadays makes its own movements, but these pieces are signed "Carl F. Bucherer". So, this one most likely has a generic one.
    The photos of the watch itself make it difficult to determine the quality of finish, so without this and the movement picture I don't think authenticity can anyhow be verified.
    Going by the design, I would say it dates to the 1980s or the 1990s, so it's kind of contemporary.

    Bucherer is a very high class jeweller who sold Rolex watches.
    Even with the poor photos it looks an interesting piece
    As I suspect the large number 7 is the hour and the two other dials are minutes and seconds, so its a combination of digital and analog.
    It looks very much like the contemporary design of early Rolex Prince

    I thinks it could be an interesting piece

    The Bucherer Brand has a long history of making and selling watches and jewelry in Switzerland and Europe. Around a decade ago, it split the company into more diversified brands. "Bucherer" for the retail outlet, "BSwiss" for the entry and mid-level timepieces and "Carl F. Bucherer" for the premium luxury brands.

    That watch is similar to a Bucherer Archimedes and although the movement is not quite the same, I am sure it is a variant/part of that family.
    It in turn was based on some Bucherer/Rolex collaborations in the 1930's.

    The Archimedes was an automatic, mainly with an ETA 1727, reintroduced in the 1990's - There were some similar models introduced in 1991 through 1994 so I would say it probably came out around these years. There were both white gold and stainless versions...
    Are there any model numbers on the back? Two sets of numbers one model one serial — Probably something with an 08 in it if it is stainless steel 02 if white gold
