    Help Dating Imperial/Buren Pocket Watch

    Found this 16s Imperial PW with Buren 23 j movement at a thrift. Very nice condition with unmarked double sunk dial and running seemingly nicely. Pendant set. There is some history to be found online re Imperial . Would anyone have any idea of the age of this piece? Or know of any database that includes Buren movements?

    I'd guess the watch was made between 1916 (when Büren started using the name Büren Watch Co.) and 1930's. The Supreme case was made by Illinois Watch Company (not the Illinois Watch Co which made watches) Unfortunately, the caliber escapes me at the moment :) BTW very nice watch - congrats

    @bubba48- thank you that's helpful. Supreme case ( in this case guaranteed 20 years) might therefore indicate a date in the 1930's. Sounds about right although I was guessing earlier.
