    Please help me identify this Bucherer watch?

    Please help me identify this Bucherer watch?

    Five years ago I was treated for my wedding this very expensive watch: BUCHERER MOON PHASE AUTOMATIC

    I have to sell it for financial reasons but this year I relocated myself and I lost i the box with the original warranty. I wonder if anyone can tell me what model it is and what is its present value, considering that there are signs of wear on the glass and on the dial back. I would like to retrieve a manual clock in pdf but I do not know where to find it. Can anyone help me on the value of the watch and the manual?

    Sorry, we cannot help you with the value- we do not give valuations here. You can search completed eBay listings for similar watches and see what they have sold for. By the way, this watch- being only 5 years old- is not vintage.

    This probably falls under the Bucherer Archimedes Series.
    Is it 18k rose gold or is it plated or PVD'd?
    I am assuming this was bought second hand, Bucherer wasn't making these 5 years ago.
    I would replace the crystal, get it polished and serviced before selling.

    The reference number of that model seems to be 78790 (on the case back). When I google "Bucherer 78790", I come up with something looking almost identical but purporting to be by Maurice Arnie:

    Maurice Arnie Mondphase Chronograph 78790-(4001)- bei Uhren - Wellmann another by Renee (third watch down):

    Chronographen Ren?e Gerove OHG - finally! - one with "Bucherer" on the dial (closed eBay auction, piccies now gone but visible in google picture search):

    I therefore think that this was a private label watch made for more than one end user brand. In any case, the movement is a Valjoux 7758:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: Valjoux 7758 (Valjoux 7750)

    ...which was made from 1986 to 2005, so your watch is probably 10 years old or older.
