    Buren Ambassador Pocketwatch

    I recently bought at auction this Buren Grand Prix P/W but cannot identify age or any other details.
    It is a nickel chrome case, quite slim with an art deco appearance. The quality looks good and is a great timekeeper.
    The movement is stamped 30 cal.
    The case has the number 153678-533703
    It would appear to be 15 jewels.
    I have had very little information so this is my last chance
    Any information would be much appreciated.

    It is obviously a Cal. 30 and the general style dates it to at least the thirties, possibly forties or early fifties. After that, even pocket watches got shock proofing and seventeen jewels.

    Quick addition: Revue (Gedeon Thommen) had quite a similar Cal. 30 out - maybe this one is by them. On the other hand, I'd expect a "GT" stamp on the movement then.....

    Beautiful watch indeed.1930s or early '40s I would say.
