MAKING US ALL SHINE
In 1888, in the heart of Switzerland, Carl Friedrich Bucherer began a watchmaking heritage that spans over 130 years. One of the few watchmakers still entirely owned and operated by its founding family, Carl F. Bucherer represents groundbreaking innovation, uncompromising luxury and visionary self-confidence.
From his workshop in Lucerne, Carl created masterpieces in miniature, working on the instinct that wristwatches would be the wave of our timekeeping future. From Baroque to Art Deco, incredible timepieces that pair contemporary style with incomparable accuracy have become the hallmark of the brand.
Today, in-house calibers and stunning design carry the storied history from the past to the present, and beyond.

The latest addition to the Carl F. Bucherer Heritage collection is not just a look back at the watchmaker’s own history, but also an ode to the zeitgeist of the 1950s – in a decidedly modern package. The Carl F. Bucherer Heritage line was launched in New York just last year. It is a tribute to both the multifaceted tradition of the Swiss watchmaker and Carl F. Bucherer’s roots in Lucerne.
A Pioneer of Peripheral Technology
The culmination of this innovative developmental work came in the form of the CFB T3000 caliber. The tourbillon is regarded as a highlight of the art of watchmaking and, in their latest caliber, the designers and watchmakers at Carl F. Bucherer have succeeded in giving it a floating appearance. The cage of the minute tourbillon is supported peripherally – and invisible to the viewer – by three ball bearings.
PARTNERSHIPS AND AMBASSADORS
The mysterious and charismatic Manta Ray is in danger due to over-fishing. Carl F. Bucherer has been working for years with The Manta Ray Trust (A UK Registered charity) to help ensure the survival of the fragile population. A special-edition watch was released in 2017 designed specifically for the trust, to be sold to benefit the Manta Ray cause.
