What do these markings mean?

Recommended Posts

I want to list a couple of old watches on next week's crazy Wednesday. The one watch, a Buren has the markings "9C" a plus sign and the number 92547, with a little picture of a hammer above the number on the inside of the case, stamped. What do these markings mean? I'm attching some pictures - sorry about the low quality.

The image does not tell us anything.It is almost invisible

In my opinion it could be 9ct.Are you not perhaps reading the t as a plus sign.

Give us a better image

 

PS: I enlarged the image. The 9C is probably 9ct Gold--Best to have it tested.

I had it tested at a local "cash for gold" place and it is 9 ct gold.

Hammer Proof ? (As opposed to waterproof.)

The hammer or spiked club is the swiss mark for 9 carat gold which was only added after 1933 - prior to that they only had marks for 18 and 14 carat. Not too sure what the number means could be the manufacturers code / year produced.
