Hi all, I'm new here so please be gentle ;)

I recently acquired this little Buren.
I know nothing about its history or whether it's original etc. But it has a lovely patina and runs happily.

The case measures 39 mm from lug to lug, and 21 mm across excluding the crown.
Fixed lugs.
Inside the caseback is stamped a serial number 672761.
Movement says "cal 14" beneath the balance wheel, and "Sphinx Lever" on the ratchet wheel.

Can anyone help with an idea of its age?
Any info gratefully received.

Thanks for that Abslomrob :)
I didn't know about Sphinx being a trademark of Buren.
As to where I got it, it was passed on to me from an elderly relative - I'm in the UK, so most likely it was originally sold here.
Anyone able to give me an indication how old it might be?
