Bueche Girod was a small watchmaking company founded in 1947. The foundations of the company were started by A. Bueche, in 1937. Despite its modest size, its master watchmaker Vital Bueche was well-known for producing excellent movements, and had many patents including the moon-phase and plain calendar. Just a few years after the company’s creation, Vital turned his attention to producing movements and watches for other large companies, such as Cartier and Bulova and carrying out small orders for automobile companies. Bueche Girod continued to release its own watches, often ladies watches with elaborate or jewellery-like designs. They mainly worked in gold, including making white gold watches, which were rare at the time, set with precious stones, using predominantly high quality mechanisms. In the 1970s Bueche-Girod became a designer watch brand focused on the luxury, high priced, market sector and minor editions. The company closed in the late twentieth century. Its watches have become collectors items.
