MADE OF LUCERNE
Carl F. Bucherer’s story began in 1888, when Carl Friedrich Bucherer opened the doors of his watch and jewelry atelier in the city of Lucerne, in the heart of Switzerland. In the 13-plus decades since, the brand has developed into a global watch brand which is still owned and led by the founder’s grandson, Jörg G. Bucherer. While the manufacture has had an impressive evolution, the last twenty years have elevated its status and renown as it has continued to do what it has always done best: designing and producing innovative Swiss watches. Carl F. Bucherer’s in-house calibers, industry-leading peripheral technology and stunning designs remain its hallmarks and carry its “Made of Lucerne” message around the world.
THE MANERO MINUTE REPEATER SYMPHONY
The Carl F. Bucherer Manero Minute Repeater Symphony sets new standards in peripheral technology: it includes three patented peripheral technologies: a winding system with a peripheral rotor, a peripherally-mounted “floating tourbillon” and a minute repeater with a peripherally-mounted regulator. Its complex interior is complemented by classic watch design: an 18-karat rose gold case whose hand-angled lugs gracefully follow the silhouette of the wrist. It confirms the brand’s position in the ranks of the world’s finest producers of luxury watches.
THE HERITAGE FAMILY
The Heritage Collection, which is an essential part of Carl F. Bucherer’s Maison & Heritage brand world, transfers its history directly to its clients’ wrists. The watches in this collection are inspired by timepieces from the brand’s proud past. Timeless models from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s are reinterpreted and introduced to resolutely contemporary watch enthusiasts who are struck by the seamless blend of historic design and state-of-the-art movement technology.
THE PATRAVI SCUBATEC MALDIVES
A selection of Carl F. Bucherer Patravi ScubaTec watches are specially designed to raise awareness of – and to help support – the Manta Trust foundation. For example, a part of the proceeds from the sales of the Patravi ScubaTec Maldives, the fourth watch dedicated to the support of the Manta Trust, helped finance a floating research station, which allows scientists to reach far-flung areas in the Maldives and observe and record manta behavior in real time.
THE MANTA TRUST
Carl F. Bucherer proudly supports the Manta Trust, a non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of manta rays and their habitats around the world. Its support for the Manta Trust has come in the form of some special Patravi ScubaTec Manta Trust Editions that have been introduced regularly since 2017. The Patravi ScubaTec family is a key part of the Sport and Adventure brand world and with the Manta Trust, the focus is clearly on adventure.
CARL F. BUCHERER AND THE LUCERNE FESTIVAL ORCHESTRA
