    Cool Buren Pocket Watch

    Hi all-
    I just picked this Buren pocket watch on Ebay and was wondering if anyone can help date it? I am waiting for delivery so the pictures are the sellers. The pictures are a lot better than what I could take. Any information would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Steve B.

    The case from Star Watch Case Company(?) gives a years of use guarantee... I believe that dates it prior to the 1930s if not the 1920s. Others may know more.

    Nice watch!

    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I believe the whole "Gauranteed X Years" thing was discontinued by law, in the 1920s, so it's probably made before 1924, unless they're using an older case for a new watch.
