By unveiling the Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition, Swiss watch manufacture Carl F. Bucherer defeats one of the greatest challenges of the watchmaker’s art. Introduced at Baselworld 2013, this premier complication from the Manero range, underlines the brand’s skilled craftsmanship at the very highest level.
The Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition now combines for the first time the classic elegance of the Manero range with the masterpiece of the watchmaker’s art which is the tourbillon. An opening in the dial at 6 o’clock provides a view of this fascinating mechanism. The filigree delicacy of the complication makes it a centerpiece of the very highest quality. In addition to the tourbillon itself, further special features have also been integrated into the watch. From the center, the date is indicated by a hand. The numerals of the date scale change orientation at 3 and 9 o’clock, so that they can be clearly read at a glance. Another unusual feature of the Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition is the above-average power reserve of 70 hours. The remaining energy can be read off via the power reserve indication at 9 o’clock. The final refinement on the dial is the 24-hour indication at 12 o’clock.
In spite of the large number of functions and indications, Carl F. Bucherer has ensured optimum clarity of the dial in the Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition. This was a challenge that the designers fulfilled by means of generous proportions and the incorporation of different levels. With the strikingly positioned, wedge-shaped hour markers, the striking letters and numerals typical of Carl F. Bucherer, and the tapering hours and minutes hands, the traditional complication of the tourbillon has been given a contemporary interpretation. This elegantly luxurious look is skillfully continued in the case, which is made of fine rose gold.
The high level of exclusivity of the Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition is ensured by the strictly limited edition, with only 188 of these prestigious timepieces available worldwide. With this new model from the Manero Collection, Carl F. Bucherer has succeeded in creating a watch to delight all connoisseurs who value traditional watchmaking artistry combined with optimum functionality, presented in a classic yet impressive exterior.
