Carl F. Bucherer Carl F. Bucherer teams up with Rinspeed for the ultimate futuristic car

The new urban car concept Oasis has been unveiled at the CES in Las Vegas. Its steering wheel integrates the new Manero Flyback watch.

Carl F. Bucherer and Rinspeed have been working together in partnership for the past ten years. What unites the two companies is not only their Swiss roots, but also a shared philosophy – in their never-ending quest for new solutions, ideas and innovative technologies. The year 2017 marks Rinspeed’s launch of the visionary concept car Oasis, a fascinating interpretation of the electric car, perfectly designed for city life. Its futuristic look is created with large glass surfaces and decorated front wheels, while the inside of the car emulates living-room flair, outfitted with an arm-chair, side-board and television. One highlight is the windscreen, which also functions as a screen for virtual and augmented reality. Directly underneath, the green area on the dashboard offers a space to cultivate living things, vegetation of flora.

The new urban car concept Oasis has been unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The event also marked the first official showing of the highly sophisticated 2017 Manero Flyback watch, fully integrated within the steering wheel of the car, for which Oasis acts as an innovative watch winder.

Behind the classical rounded casing of the Manero Flyback there is a sophisticated automatic stopwatch. By pressing the zero-button it is possible to measure several time frames - one after the other - with minimal time loss. In the background the wearer can see the turning wheels of the stopwatch, which set the hands in motion again as soon as the zero-button is released, in contrast to conventional stopwatches, where the button needs to be pressed three times for a new start. The inside of the Oasis car provides the perfect backdrop for the Manero Flyback watch. The champagne-coloured clock-face ideally complements the cognac-coloured leather watch-band.
