    BWC Carrera Sunburst Dial Manual Chronograph 1965
    Buttes Watch Co. of Buttes, Switzerland Swiss Timepiece Makers 1775-1975, they sold watches in England under the name Butex... mainly pre war to people who wanted an accurate watch when driving. This is one of several brands who made their mark in the 20th Century by making watches for the new market in racing cars so as cars became faster and more people owned higher performing vehicles they would race and then they would need timing.... Butex was one of those watchmakers. This watch is signed BWC which is the final incarnation of the brand from the early 70's...
    This is an early Carrera style attempt at waterproof case with very small pushers, 36mm stainless steel case with a silver sunburst 45 min recorder dial, very subtle and classy look with a small inner ring tachymeter that has faded to a light cream. Pencil hands and a dark blued almost black chronograph sweep secs. The movement is a plated landeron 248 pre cursor to the dominance of the later valjoux movements. Very vintage in look and matched with a buffalo leather vintage strap. A cool under the radar classic 60's watch as a daily wearer.

    The watch has been serviced and carries a 3 month mechanical warranty.
    Due to their age and the original use of these watches there are minor marks to be found on the cases
    which add to their vintage look without detracting from the quality, view the pictures for clarification.
    ATG vintage watches give no waterproof guarantee or even splash proof, these watches are from a time before any idea of a fully waterproof watch.
