Any information on this watch? Bueche Girod

#1 Post by JollyJed » Sun Aug 28, 2016 6:13 am

Hey guys,

I recently found this watch and remember being given it years ago, do you guys have any ideas of what model watch it actually is and whether it has any value?

Cheers guys!

I don't have any specific insights to offer but it looks to me like a designer-fashion piece. The fact that it's a quartz watch leads me to believe it's nothing particularly special. If the case is solid gold, then it has that going for it (I can't tell from the photos).

There are a good number of Bueche Girod watches from the 1960s-70s for sale on eBay with the lion share being 18k with both manual and Quartz movts. They all are listed with for a pretty sum ($1K - 5K) The 9k are listed for a few hundred.

A quick Google yielded a little history from a unverified website. It said they were a Swiss company founded by Vital Bueche in 1947 with the company name coming from Vital and his wife, Edwige Girod.

Hope this was helpful.
