    Bucherer watch from the 60's or 70's looks like a weekday automatic

    I have Bucherer that looks a bit like this weekday automatic:

    But, it has an odd logo that is like a circle with three short prongs on the top. It is at the jewelers getting restored because it is a sentimental piece, but does anyone know what the logo is or can you identify the watch? I think it's a 60's or 70's era watch and it has 25 jewels, but I have no other info right now.

    I am sorry but I can't help you much. I would also sy that it's a late sixties/early seventies watch but I am not aware of that sort of logo being used by Bucherer around then. The current logo is the circular one consisting of many little elements:

    ...but I am not sure when that came into being.

    When I simply googled out "vintage bucherer", some watches from approximately the same period showed up... some with the more fancy logo, and some with the circle with three prongs, that you have described. It's only my rather loose theory, that Bucherer might have used different logos, depending on the market the watches were sold to. There actually is a precedent for that. Exempli gratia: Jaeger-LeCoultre signing their American-market pieces as "LeCoultre".
    That the movement has 25 jewels and is automatic, doesn't say much. It can be an ETA, it can be an AS, it can be anything. Once you get the watch back, post the pictures of the dial, movement and caseback- we will be able to help you more.

    I'll be darned. A yahoo search didn't have any pictures with this logo, but like you said Google pulled it up. Thanks.

    i will open it up and post pictures, but it will be at the shop until August.
