    Help with Berney

    Hi! New here. Like waches if mechanical and buy to wear. Have lurked but not posted. Pleased to b here.

    Ran across an automatc labled "Berney". Is that Berney-Blondau or something else? It's rather similar to second img in this link, although not quite as elegant. Anyone know? Reasonable price if assume unspec grade 2892a2, steel, moon, power reserve, day, date, good used condition?

    Thanks

    I thought this was going to be about a big purple thing (now, now - watch it).

    I have found that some people just like to hear themselves typing.

    You think I'm condescending...?? Do you even know what that means... ??

    Welcome! I don't know anything about the brand I'm afraid but maybe someone else here does.

    Berney is a small watch company founded by Henri Berney in the Valley de Joux. It is the same as a Berney Blondeau. Some years ago (10?) the BB brand was sold by the family and it is my understanding promptly run straight into the ground. Mr. Berney is still living, and exhibits annually at Basel on in a small booth. They now market the Claude Meylan brand, which is a very small brand with little to no USA distribution.
