B0URQUIN

The Bourquin family including five brothers, were born in St. Emir, Switzerland and immigrated to the US. By the early 1860's, the Bourquin Bros. would become prominent watch importers and  jewelers in New York City with a watch factory in Bienne, Switzerland. Adolphe, Ulysses, Edward and Eugene were listed as partners with premises at 20 Maiden Lane in Trow's in 1866. The  New York Bourquin Brothers were listed as Manufacturers and Importers, 20 Maiden Lane, N.Y. They appear to have used a variety of names, all followed by Bienne.

LOVE THIS ORIGINAL DIAL


I HAD TO INVEST IN THIS ORIGINALLY

BLUED STEEL

GOLD

ULYSSES B0URQUIN WRIST WATCH

IT IS NOT AN EARLY CONVERSION
FROM A POCKET WATCH BUT ONE
OF THE FIRST LADIES WRIST WATCHES
THAT WAS ACTUALLY DESIGNED

TO BE A WRIST WATCH

IMG_6625.JPG (70288 bytes)
THE BRACELET IS ONE OF THE FIRST HAND MADE GOLD FILLED MESH
WITH FLIP CLASP AND SLIDING ADJUSTMENT FITS 5 T TO 9 SO
IT COULD BE WORN OVER A SLEEVE JACKET COAT

 

I WAS ABLE TO RESTORE THIS WONDERFUL FIND
TO A POINT WE HAVE BOTH WORLDS


THE ANTIQUE FADED & RUSTED & WORN CASE
IS ONCE MORE BLUED SMOOTH


THE RUST IS GONE
THE PITTING IS GONE

YET 106 YEARS OF HISTORY CAN BE RECALLED
THROUGH THE WONDERFUL *MOTTLE

LOOK OF THE CASE

*Spots or blotches of different shades or colors. A blotch of color. A variegated pattern,

THE DIAL ONCE WHITE WITH SHADING AND
IS NOW A NICE OFF WHITE WITH SHADING

WHEN  EVALUATING THIS DIAL
I REALIZED IT WAS IN EXTRAORDINARY CONDITION
A LIGHT WASHING WOULD DO THE TRICK


YET ONE WOULD EXPECT MORE DAMAGE!


RICH BLACK BUTLERS RING
  BRIGHT RED 12
NON-FADED NUMERALS
AND

A PATTERN I& TONE
DIAL
THAT REMAINS AS IT WAS


WHY WAS IT SO NICE??

IT WAS NEVER PROTECTED FROM THE
SUN AND LIGHT AND ELEMENTS
LIKE A POCKET WATCH

THAT RESIDES IN THE DARK23 OF 24 HOUR OF THE DAY

THIS WRIST WATCH WAS WORN
DAY AND NIGHT
IT TRAVELED TO PLACES AND EVENTS ON THE WRIST

WHY WAS IT SO NICE??

WAS IT A GIFT OF TIME
HANDED DOWN THROUGH THE AGES

 

WHY WAS IT SO NICE??

NO MATTER WHAT OR WHO
THE DIAL IS ORIGINAL AND BRIGHT
ABSENT CIGARETTE SMOKE OF 100 YEARS

WHY WAS IT SO NICE??

IT WAS ONE OF THE FIRST
WRIST WATCHES

UNLESS STATED OTHERWISE all watches offered by GSW have been SERVICED. Some required REPAIR AND RESTORATION! Normal Servicing of Mechanical Watches by an EXPERT PROFESSIONAL will run between $180.00 to 580.00, depending on the complication of the movement and that is WITHOUT parts that may be required. SERVICING means DISASSEMBLING THE ENTIRE WATCH AND MOVEMENT, CLEANING SAME, OILING, LUBING AND REASSEMBLING, timing and Sealing. RESTORATION is a separate service from SERVICING and may include CRYSTAL, DIAL, HANDS, CASE, LUGS and BAND. So, WHEN YOU VIEW VINTAGE AND CLASSIC WATCHES OFFERED BY OTHER VENDORS/DEALERS, the question is: WAS THE WATCH SERVICED?

All watches, from mechanical to quartz devices, require periodic cleaning and inspection. GSW provides both cleaning and repair services with our main specialty that of restoring and repairing classic & vintage watches. GSW has established parts accounts with the oldest watch parts houses in the world as well as a network of watch dealers and repair centers around the world. GSW also provides dial restoration services. In addition to servicing new, vintage & classic watches, we also service high grade wristwatches. Think of your watch as you would a fine automobile, it is worth maintaining as it will increase your pleasure of ownership and also enhance the resale or trade-in value. If you plan on passing your watch on to the next generation, skilled periodic maintenance will be greatly appreciated in the future.
