Established 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 jeweler 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.
The high polished case is made of solid 9 carat gold! 9K gold is not as soft as 14 or 18k gold, thus being the perfect composition for a solid gold pocket watch. Unlike 14k and 18k, 9k It is much more dent resistent and is made to last a lifetime!
The Swiss Made mechanical movement is produced by ETA. 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!
As an authorized Bernex internet retailer, all Bernex Swiss watches we sell carry a full 2 year factory warranty!
