A Gentleman’s Journey With Carl F. Bucherer

My Journey With Carl F. Bucherer

Monday morning, I packed my duties and drove with the classy Jaguar F-Type up to Honegg. Of course, some beautiful memories came up on my way… Last time, we spent an unforgettable week-end at the Villa Honegg. The sun was out on this spring day – and since I’m deep in love with my Patravi Traveltec FourX, I was super excited to see the new collection now being presented by Carl F. Bucherer at Baselworld

Today, I have the extraordinary honour to present two of my favourite timepieces of Carl F. Bucherer’s new collection.

What Inspires Me So Much About The Brand

Sustainability, is one of the most inspiring characteristics of Carl F. Bucherer. The name has been synonymous with quality, innovation, and passion since 1888. Founded in Lucerne, the Swiss family business has become an internationally renowned global brand characterized by its founder’s pioneering spirit and the cosmopolitan esprit of its home. Today, the company remains in the third generation of the family under Jörg G. Bucherer.

All timepieces and movements created by the independent watch manufacturer Carl F. Bucherer are developed and produced in the brand’s own workshops in Switzerland.

With its exclusive watch creations, Carl F. Bucherer epitomizes high-quality craftsmanship, unmistakable style and detailed sophistication.

MANERO POWERRESERVE

Carl F. Bucherer brings color into play. The classic Manero PowerReserve sees the addition of two vivid models in limited editions. The manufacture model with integrated power reserve display features elaborate dials in bright midnight blue and luminous pine green.

The Manero PowerReserve is an authentic manufacture product. Its centerpiece is the CFB A1011 caliber automatic movement. It belongs to the CFB A1000 movement family, entirely designed as well as developed by Carl F. Bucherer, and first presented in 2008. Its special features include the peripheral oscillating weight winding in both directions, allowing the movement a power reserve of at least 55 hours – or more than two full days – when fully wound. The remaining power reserve is shown in a semicircular display at 3 o’clock.

Unique dials

This analog power reserve display is kept in visual balance with the digital weekday display at 9 o’clock and complemented by a big date and small seconds. This design gives the Manero PowerReserve a unique and unmistakable look. It has so far been available in silver and subtle black. Carl F. Bucherer is now launching two special colored dials – one in blue and one in green. Instead of offering a uniform color, the shade varies continuously, from a deep vivid shade on the edge to a brilliant light color in the center. This soft dégradé color on the dials is achieved by a highly intricate process, producing quite literally the color highlights of the watchmaking industry.
