According to the site Jim has indicated, a hallmark was compulsory for watch cases but optional for silverware. If your spoon is heavy it is likely silver.

Also, based on your photo, it doesn't look like plate to me.

Your Rolex Bucherer lucerne cb 69 teaspoon is sterling silver I found one at the flea market and as I test everything I tested and the test gave a clear red reading.   I put a lot of pressure using a scratch stone and acid.

I have the same spoon as yours Bucherer  If your spoon is not marked test it.  I had to test mine it is sterling not plated I made sure of that.  Remember sterling itself is only 90 percent silver the other 25percent is an alloy or the item would be too soft
