Carl F. Bucherer – Savoir-Faire Since 1888

By Zahra Al-Kateb

By Kristen Shirley

Founded in 1888, independent Swiss watchmaker Carl F. Bucherer designs and produces all of its timepieces at its workshop in Lucerne. One of the few watchmakers that has mastered a peripheral rotor, and showcases it in a new movement family for 2016, it has both technically impressive watches and beautiful gem-set jewelry watches.

Manero Peripheral The new CFB A2000 family debuts in the Manero Peripheral. The A2050 automatic caliber has fewer components but keeps its award-winning peripheral rotor, which winds around the movement, not over it. The dial is redesigned as well, with a smaller date at three o’clock and a seconds subdial at six o’clock. 18K rose gold, $18,600.



Pathos Swan For ladies, the manufacturer shows its remarkable skill with jewelry watches. The Pathos Swan has 922 diamonds and sapphires on the case, while the dial and strap has a swan motif on the mother of pearl dial. The watch is limited to 88 pieces; each is made to order. 18K rose gold, $171,600.


Patravi TravelTec II New this year is the Patravi TravelTec II, a chronograph with three time zones. The 47.4mm watch has a rose gold case, black dial, black strap and is water resistant to 100m. The second time zone is easily adjusted with a pusher at 10 o’clock that moves the bezel forwards or backwards by an hour. 18K rose gold, $48,000.
