In October 2019, Bucherer launched a masterpiece of exquisite watchmaking excellence from the Bucherer BLUE collection: The exclusive Manero AutoDate Bucherer BLUE by Carl F. Bucherer – a homage to the allure of the heavens, blue hours and watchmaking excellence “Made of Lucerne” since 1888.
Bucherer and blue: This combination of Swiss watchmaking excellence and the beauty and symbolism of this colour has a long-standing tradition dating back to 1888. A tradition that is especially prevalent in the unique collection of blue timepieces exclusively available at Bucherer under the name Bucherer BLUE, which have been created in collaboration with the world’s most renowned watchmakers since 2016.
The Manero AutoDate Bucherer BLUE by Carl F. Bucherer watch combines mechanical perfection with exceptional elegance. Twelve royal-blue sapphires shimmering on the white mother-of-pearl dial pay artistic homage to ancient mythology, according to which the heavens are a giant reflection of these gemstones. Matt blue hour and minute hands and a midnight-blue satin strap harmoniously incorporate the intense shade of blue. Sixty-two brilliant diamonds sparkle in keeping with the stainless-steel bezel like stars on the firmament.
In terms of technology, the watch boasts a finely crafted automatic movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. Ensconced in a stainless steel case featuring a domed sapphire glass with anti-reflective coating on both sides, it can be admired through the transparent sapphire-glass case back.
This ladies’ watch perfectly complements its 2016 predecessor, the Manero Peripheral BLUE EDITIONS. Exquisite materials and a finely balanced, feminine design impart a real jewellery character to this highly precise specimen of Swiss watchmaking excellence, while all eyes are drawn to its “blue hours”: the 12 teardrop-shaped sapphire indices appear like sparks on the firmament, creating an ode to graceful and timeless elegance.
