    Default Butex Question (RE: Charlie Kilgore)

    According to Kathy Pritchard's excellent "Swiss Timepiece Makers 1775-1975", Butex is a brand name of Buttes Watch Co. of Buttes, Switzerland. The Butex name seems to have been used around 1949. If you do a Google search on Buttes Watch Co you'll find a few hits. They may still be in business.

    Regards,
    Mike
