I recently stumbled upon a Bucheler bracelet watch, and I'm hoping to perhaps identify a decade it was made in. Attached are some photos, and here are some details that I've been able to locate:
- Bucherer, 17 Jewels mechanical movement
- Movement has the following imprinted words:
-- Swiss made
-- 3 ADJ.
-- 17 Jewels
- Back of the case has: Plaque OR G 20 Microns
When I got it movement was fully wound, but didn't work. It would go for 3-5 seconds and then stop. After gentle washing with alcohol and immediate drying, it started to work for longer, and looks like it may be slightly revived (never attempted anything like that before, that was a bit scary).
I was hoping somebody could shed some light on when this watch may have been made. I don't expect it has much value, but if it continues to work it may just work as a cool gift for my wife.
