Bernex Swiss Made
Heirloom Quality Pocket Watch
17 Jewel Swiss ETA Wind Up Mechanical
(Stock Photo - Actual item may have very slight differences)
in Switzerland in 1858, in the Watchmaking village of Les Breuleux,
Bernex watches have been manufactured and sold by the Bouverat family
world-wide for the past 140 years. In 1919, part of the the family
left Switzerland and founded Geo. Bouverat & Co. Ltd in the UK.
They continued to provide quality Swiss timepieces under the Bernex
Brand Name, working closely with leading retail jewelers throughout
the UK to ensure that Bernex remain at the forefront. Bouverat are
proud of their Swiss origin, and timepieces are still imported from
Les Breuleux, their original home, as well as other leading Swiss
factories, to ensure Bernex is known as 'The' Swiss Watch.
This is the same 17
jewel movement used in modern Dueber Watch Co, Jean Marcel, Hamilton, and most of the quality Swiss pocket watches today! In
fact, even the luxury brand wrist watch manufacturers (like Panerai,
IWC, etc.) use a variation of this movement! The movement can run continuously for 46 hours on a full wind (although a daily wind is recommened for optimal timekeeping). If you are looking
for an heirloom quality Swiss timekeeper to carry around and be
serviceable for the foreseeable future, this is the watch for you!
