Buren Electric 130E By Hamilton Clearview Watch
Offered is this FULLY SERVICED (ultrasonic wash, rinse, and lubrication) Hamilton-Buren Electric watch. Hamilton purchased the Swiss Buren company in the 1960s and must have marketed some of their "Vantage" line of lower cost watches under the Buren name. Covered in René Rondeau's book "The Watch Of The Future" on pages 95-96, the Vantage line of watches was released as a solution to compete with low cost imports under different names. It runs great and keeps time to well under 30 seconds variation per day. The watch has a brand new battery just installed. The hack function works properly, and the watch starts right up each time the crown is pushed in from the setting position to the running position. As a plus, it has had a BRAND NEW OLD STOCK D-PIN installed in the balance, so it will run virtually as it did from the factory.
This example was an attempt by Hamilton to make a lower cost version of the Hamilton Electric Clearview, making it an interesting way to show what is inside your watch at a lower price point.
