American 16 size pocket
From 1899 to 1932, Buren was
the Swiss factory of H. Williamson, Ltd, an English company. Williamson,
bought a watch factory in Switzerland and created the Buren Watch
Company. Ads in the 1920's proclaimed Buren to be "The Perfect Watch"
and boasted of the linking up of
Swiss watch manufacturing with British Enterprise and Capital.
This came to an end during the Great Depression and Buren came to be an
independent Swiss firm in 1932 when the employees bought the plant and
it became The Buren Watch Co., Switzerland. On March 1, 1966 Buren Watch
Co. was acquired by the
Hamilton Watch Co. and the Swiss factory
became Buren Watch Hamilton. Production came to an end in 1972.
