Any watch snob will tell you: it’s time Carl F. Bucherer cropped up on your radar. The Swiss watchmaker was founded in Lucerne in 1888, and today it mixes time honoured precision engineering with chic looks, creating timepieces that are contemporary, refined and make smart use of sporty complications. Its two signature watches, the Manero Flyback and the Manero Peripheral are both impressive pieces of design, albeit for different reasons.
The Manero Flyback offers an elegant take on a chronograph. The watch’s eponymous flyback function can reset its stopwatch with the press of a single pusher at four o’clock, as opposed to the two pushers normally required to reset a chronograph movement.
Meanwhile, the Manero Peripheral showcases one of Carl F. Bucherer’s in-house movements: the CFB A2050. Inside is a chronometer-certified automatic caliber made by Carl F. Bucherer exclusively for use in its own watches, with a 55 hour power reserve, no less.
Both are very handsome timepieces, suited to the man who’s after something a little different, but from a watchmaker with the pedigree to rival any other.
