Can anyone date this watch?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

My mum bought this watch from an auction, there wasn't much in the description just that it is a  ' 9ct gold cased Buren Wristwatch', (but I'm not sure how they know it's Buren as I can't see any marks on it all). Does anyone know how old it might be? I'm just trying to work out if it could have been painted with lume paint as when I opened the watch face to correct the time some black flakes fell out and I'm just concerned these might be from old radium or titrium lume paint?

   in order to "date a watch"  it has to be opened to look for numbers inside.  it is easy to damage a valuable time piece without experience in watch repair.   Best toake it to your jeweler for advice.    vin

Thanks for your replies, I don't have any knowledge of watches myself so it's very helpful! There's a small hole in the side of the watch, is this for opening the back in some way? For example if I insert a tool into that will it allow me to open up the back? Thanks for your help.
