Precision watchmaking combined with jewellery craftsmanship

by 06 December 2011

When finest watchmaking and jewellery craftsmanship are combined, the results are timelessly beautiful, high-precision watches. Their proud owners will never want to part with such timepieces again. Watches of this type are those made by Lucerne-based manufacturer Carl F. Bucherer. Timepieces that represent a fusion of the company's traditional values and contemporary outlook.

Bucherer Montres S.A. is an independent company within the Bucherer Group, which can look back over ninety years of manufacturing experience. In 2001, the brand Carl F. Bucherer was launched internationally, its name paying tribute to the company's pioneering founder, Carl Friedrich Bucherer.

Since November 2010, Sascha Moeri has been CEO of Bucherer Montres S.A.: “It makes me proud to be at the helm of Bucherer Montres S.A. and its watch brand Carl F. Bucherer. This year, our goal is to have the best year in terms of revenue since the company's foundation, while focusing on the traditions of the company and a value-oriented performance, as well as a progressive outlook to the future.”

Show-stopper number one: Patravi Calendar…
With the Patravi Calendar, Carl F. Bucherer created a model for watch connoisseurs. The case is made of stainless steel or 18-carat rose gold and has a diameter of 42.6 mm. The Patravi Calendar features a large date indicator at 11 o’clock, while the small seconds are displayed on a disk. Thus, the dial offers optimal readability.

…followed by show-stopper number two: Manero ChronoPerpetual
Yet another highlight by Carl F. Bucherer is the Manero ChronoPerpetual. It is notable for its chronograph and perpetual calendar, as well as for its classic design, featuring a stainless steel or 18-carat rose gold case and an alligator leather strap. The limited edition adds to its exclusivity: 150 pieces have been made in stainless steel, while the rose gold version is limited to 100 pieces.

Magic & Reality: the Alacria Swan
Swans are the magic symbol of Lake Lucerne. In mythology, they stand for dreams, lifelong partnerships and fidelity. With the Alacria Swan, Carl F. Bucherer presents a shining star within the feminine Alacria line. The numerous sparkling brilliant-cut diamonds - 348 on the case, 137 on the dial and 844 on the strap – will lend a magic aura to the woman wearing it. This precious gem will be limited to 88 pieces worldwide.
