CARL F. BUCHERER RELEASES WATCH IN KEEPING WITH ITS NEW LUXURIOUS IMAGE BREITLING UNVEILS THE CHROOSPACE EVO NIGHT MISSION IN THE MIDDLE EAST.
CARL F. BUCHERER RECENTLY RELEASED a new watch designed to represent the new, luxurious image that it has reinvented for itself. The result is the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Flyback, which fronted by an elegant champagne-colored dial.
The watch comes with 43-millimetre rose gold case, with highly domed, non-reflective sapphire crystal that harmonises visually with the dial, whose base is electroplated in a champagne gold color with deeper gold hues for the minute track and recessed subdials at 3 o’clock and 9 o’clock (for chronograph minutes and running seconds, respectively).
A tachymeter scale occupies the outer flange. The applied, faceted hour indices and lance-shaped hands are also in gold, while the date appears in a framed window at 6 o’clock.
Inside the case, and on display beneath a clear sapphire caseback, is the movement, automatic Caliber CFB 1970, which powers all of the watch’s timekeeping operations, including its flyback chronograph function. Driven by a control wheel, and operated by two mushroom-style pushers flanking the grooved crown, the chronograph is capable of making multiple time measurements in quick succession, since both chronograph hands—the centre-mounted seconds counter and the small counter of the elapsed-minutes subdial—can be reset to zero while the stopwatch is still running. The movement has 25 jewels and stores a 42-hour power reserve when fully wound.
The watch comes on a cognac-colored Louisiana alligator strap with a pin buckle in 18k rose gold. There are also versions with a rose-gold folding clasp and with a stainless steel folding clasp.
