    Not finding much info about Bueche and wife Girod that started watch sales, (and production?), 1947. Both novelty w.w. and miniature alarm clock I have are high quality but likely not their design and production. 1 inch diameter clock is a practical musical alarm with loud little cylinder. It was the favorite item in a miniature clock collection of WW2 air force lady pilot obtained when in europe. I was recently surprised to very reasonably acquire the best grade gold coin w.w. with hidden movement available from many high grade Swiss watch companies 1960s(?) It is marked internally and on dial B-G. Identical to those from Piaget and Patek. Photos do not include movements; afraid to open. So hoping to learn history and capability of B-G and maybe someone knows or has photo of the extremely thin coin movement. Mine has been used and not serviced and runs freely. artbissell

    This is from memory so forgive me if I have this a little wrong, but as I recall this was a miami -based company who made some pretty decent watches. They even made for Cartier briefly.

    They typically are not all that collectable in many circles but don't let that stop you. Cool stuff!
