Classic design and premium materials needed to be of the highest quality and finish in order to transcend fickle fashion changes and bring about a feeling of longevity.”

About the history of BUREN Time Pieces:

  • The Buren Watch Company was created in 1898
  • This followed the acquisition of Fritz Suter & Cie, at the Swiss town Büren an der Aare, by the London company of H. Williamson Ltd, producing pocket watches and table clocks of all types. Due to the existing rail link H. Williamson Ltd. invested and expanded further in Büren and developed the site into an international branch. From 1916 Henry Williamson used the signature Büren Watch Co.
  • H. Williamson Ltd. closed due to a stock market crash. However, a group of Swiss and an Englishman provided the capital necessary to be able to continue the watch production under Swiss management and with the new name Uhrenfabrik Buren AG.
  • In 1966 the Buren Watch Company was sold to the Hamilton Watch Company. Buren quickly became the manufacturer of the majority of Hamilton watches, eliminating US production.
  • Buren continued working on new movements, notably Calibre 82, a high-beat movement.
  • Today the brand name is owned by the Schweizer Uhren Editionen (Swiss Watches Editions) in Hamburg, which again manufactures watches under this label. Partly with old movements, but to a large extent also with ETA movements
  • Bacher and Co. proudly markets and distributes the BUREN Range to our very own discerning South African market, alive with culture and taste!
