Carl F. Bucherer - A unique style

Carl F. Bucherer A unique style

Sporty or classic, Carl F. Bucherer's style is inimitable. The new ladies' luxury collection confirms the fact.

Founded in 1888, Carl F. Bucherer swiftly asserted itself as a pioneering player open on the watchmaking scene. Authentic, passionate and sincere by nature, Carl F. Bucherer is a strong brand that has inherited the sense of freedom and creativity typical of its origins in the very heart of Switzerland. Looking resolutely towards the future, Carl F. Bucherer is once again celebrating the refinement, elegance, style and cosmopolitan spirit radiating from its timepieces.

The dynamic, sporty and high-performance Patravi TravelTec Black makes a noteworthy entrance into the brand collections. Applied in several layers according to an elaborate process, the DLC coating features carbon’s characteristic lightness and resistance. This original design is complemented by a black dial providing a contrasting backdrop for the light-colored counters, hour-markers and graduated scales. On the mechanical side, functionality is the watchword with a simultaneous display of three time zones. Two of them appear on the dial thanks to the sophisticated functions of COSC-certified Manufacture CFB Caliber 1901.1, while the third is shown by the rotating bezel with its 24 red hour-markers. The patented single pusher enables fast and easy adjustment of this third time zone when required during an East-West change of direction.

Movement: mechanical self-winding, CFB Caliber 1901.1, COSC-certified, 42h power reserve

Bracelet: DLC-coated stainless steel

To complete the picture, Carl F. Bucherer has chosen to associate with the latest Rinspeed Etos concept car featuring a dashboard enhanced by the Patravi TravelTec Black.


Just as sporty but in the feminine mode, the Patravi ScubaTec White 36m features a sturdy 36mm-diameter stainless steel case that is water-resistant to 200m. This model ideally suited to slimmer wrists is fitted with a white rubber strap that makes a perfect match with the white ceramic bezel. The self-winding CFB Caliber 1950 beating steadily behind the scenes drives an accurate and reliable display of the time, while the rotating bezel delivers the necessary information on dive and decompression times. To ensure optimal safety, the bezel rotates counterclockwise only. Women divers will therefore know exactly when its time to return to the surface.

The sports collections also feature the Patravi ScubaTec SFV model that reflects and accompanies the high-level performance and perseverance of the Swiss National Football Team for which Carl F. Bucherer is serving as official timekeeper since July 2016. This exclusive edition specially created for fans of the team picks up the national team’s red color and glows with a black design featuring contrasting red accents. The association’s logo appears in prime position on the pivoting bezel.

In another repertoire cherished by the brand, Carl F. Bucherer enriches the Manero collection with two new models. After several years of development, the Manero Peripheral is for the first time welcoming the new line of CFB A2000 calibers entirely developed and produced in the in-house research labs. This authentic engine for future development represents an important milestone in company history. It derives its energy from an automatic winding system operating in both directions thanks to a peripheral oscillating weight, an innovative construction principle in tune with the DNA of the Maison, and a direct descendant of the creations that have punctuated its history.  CF Caliber A2050 was specially designed for the Manero Peripheral on the basis of CFB Caliber A2000. In addition to the central display of hours and minutes, the latest model in the Manero collection also shows small seconds at 6 o’clock and the date at 3 o’clock. This new Manufacture-made caliber is housed inside a 40mm round case in pink gold or stainless steel, which may be teamed with a matt deep black or an elegant porcelain white dial.

Elegance and technical refinement are also key elements of the Manero Flyback which is equipped with a sophisticated chronograph movement powered by a column wheel and endowed with a flyback function. This term refers to the movement performed by the chronograph hands when the zero-reset button is pushed during a timing operation. The extremely complex self-winding CFB Caliber 1970 chronograph movement equips a classic round case with a 43mm diameter. The latter is available in pink gold or stainless steel versions and smoothly integrated within the elegant Manero collection. The full measure of Carl F. Bucherer’s expertise is expressed through this blend of aesthetic charm and technical excellence.

Luxury as new brand image

The new Carl F. Bucherer brand image evokes its vision of luxury: hand-crafted horological creations embodying passion and quality with inimitable style.

Carl F. Bucherer is a company with a golden touch! Its inimitable style and expertise passionately rooted in the cosmopolitan culture of Lucerne were of course already known to devotees of Fine Watchmaking with a penchant for creativity and authenticity. This fact is now showcased in all its splendor with the new brand image. Decked out in gold like the new booth unveiled at Baselworld 2016, Carl F. Bucherer literally glows, proudly reflecting the pride in its heritage and lighting the path to the future.

Vividly expressing this legacy, the new Pathos Swan is a shining example of the savoir-faire cultivated by the Lucerne-based Maison. With a liberal sprinkling of glamour, a hint of passion and the sparkle of precious stones, Carl F. Bucherer redefines the codes of feminine watchmaking and testifies to its competence in the production of the most superb jewelry watches. No less than 922 meticulously set diamonds and sapphires adorn the case, dial and bracelet of this ladies’ watch available in pink gold and pink and white gold variations produced in 88-piece limited series and made exclusively to order.

This watch setting the crowning touch to the watchmaking and jewelry expertise of Carl F. Bucherer also reflects one of the brand’s many facets: its glamorous image and its penchant for refinement. To personify these assets, the Maison from Lucerne has indeed chosen the exquisite face of Li Bingbing. The Chinese actress who lit up the silver screen with a blend of gentleness and elegance in blockbusters such as Transformers and Resident Evil is a perfect illustration of the philosophy upheld by Carl F. Bucherer: free-spirited, cosmopolitan, firmly attached to its roots yet endowed with that little twist that makes all the difference.
