Buren 600ft. Diver c.1969

By the end of 1966, Hamilton (of Lancaster, PA) ownership also held and produced both Buren and Vantage watch brands. As a result, arguably some of the coolest models from both brands came about within a handful of following years.

This circa 1969 600 foot rated Buren diver is one of them for me -- and the age may have added to it's luster, so much so that it has been primarily left as-is. With near pumpkin-colored, cracking (but intact) lume on the hands, an arrow-style seconds hand (complete with tail), and solid stainless steel case, this piece wears good, feels good, and looks good.

Watch service history is unknown on this piece, but it has been analyzed, and is performing excellently and ready to be worn!

Function - This watch is wound by hand. It is recommended to wind the crown 10-15 times to typically give a power reserve to last throughout the day. If you do fully wind the watch, stop when you begin to feel tightness in winding pressure.

[All vintage watches are expected to function as described. However, due to age and generally unknown service history (unless otherwise stated), these watches may not keep time as accurately as new or quartz (battery) watches. This is completely normal and does not indicate that there is a major problem. Like your automobile, all mechanical watches will likely need to be serviced at some point in time. Please keep this in mind, as there is no guarantee regarding when these vintage watches may need standard maintenance. Every watch sold by Buying On Time is done so with the expectation that it is not currently in need of service or repair, unless noted. We guarantee that all watches sold are accurately described and in the stated condition when they leave our hands.]
