Introducing the Buren "Grand Prix" in the 1950s .

 Buren established a watch workshop in Buren, Switzerland in 1842 .

We manufacture movements and watches in-house, and in 1952 we succeeded in developing the thin automatic winding mechanism ``Micro Rotor'', becoming the first in the world to obtain a patent for the Micro Rotor.

Due to the high level of perfection of the movement, they were also supplied to famous companies such as Hamilton and Bulova.

Since then, Buren has been involved in the development of the world's first automatic chronograph with Breitling and Tag Heuer.

Although only known to those in the know today, it is a brand with reliable technology that has left its mark on the history of the watch industry.


The Buren "Grand Prix" we are introducing today is a model that was designed for everyday use, even though it is a 1950s watch, with features such as waterproofing, earthquake resistance, and a mainspring that does not break easily.

 The clean white dial has a slightly beige color due to aging.

The dial has shading, the upright wedge-shaped index, and the brand name and pet name at 12 o'clock appear more three-dimensional, giving it the strength of a military watch.

 The notation at the 6 o'clock position indicates that waterproof and shockproof functions are implemented.

Although this technology is taken for granted now, the fact that such a function was implemented in a wristwatch makes you realize that it was a technological advancement from back then.

 In addition, there are center cross lines at 12-6 o'clock and 3-9 o'clock, so the information on the dial can be clearly seen without clutter.

This is a watch that allows you to feel the progress of watch technology and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the 1950s .

The movement is equipped with a 21 jewel, hand-wound Cal.480 .

It is shock-resistant and equipped with an earthquake-proof device, making it easy to use on a daily basis even in modern times.

Visually, you can feel the attention to detail that the engineers of the time paid to the movement, with the ruby ​​color, gear engravings, and carefully chamfered parts.


Size: Height: 42mm , Width: 35.9mm , Thickness: 9mm , Weight: 27g .
The small size at that time was easy to use not only for men but also for women.
It is thin and lightweight, so you won't get tired even if you use it for a long time.


Condition: There are no noticeable scratches on the case, but there is a scratch on the back cover.
The dial is in good condition with no noticeable dirt or scratches.
The movement is in good condition and is working without any problems.
