    Buren/Hamilton Chrono-Matic mystery

    Hello all,

    I've recently acquired this Buren Chrono-Matic that's a bit of an oddity. The Buren logo is applied and there is a nice red dot at the three minute marker of the 30 minute register. The dial is signed Singer with the appropriate JS and Singer markings on the correct place. The rest is all Hamilton 11002-3 and the movement is the straight cal. 11. Has anyone seen this dial configuration before, or know anything about it. Is it unique? I have been researching it for the last two days and have come up empty.

    Hi,
    Cool watch, I don't know much about these watches but you might want to try the vintage watch forum, they might know more.
    I haven't seen one of those before but it looks pretty original to me.

    This seems to be first generation of auto chronographs with micro-rotor and Dubois Depras module. I don't have much knowledge about them. Can you put more pictures?

    I'm trying, but I keep encountering an error message. If it helps, it seems to be identical to the Hamilton CM in every other way. 11002-3 is even on the case back. It's the dial that's thrown me.

    Very cool watch. I've never seen a Buren Chrono-matic before.

    The guys over at Chronocentric might know more. The OnTheDash Heuer forum has done a lot to document the history of Project 99
