The Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual ONLY WACTH Edition features a 41mm 18K white gold case and is presented on an elegant calf leather strap with light blue flanks.

Two light blue counters offer an attractive contrast to the silvered dial with a light blue tachymetric scale and the raised chrome Arabic numerals at the 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock positions add extra distinction to the watch’s face. The Heritage BiCompax Annual has a month aperture as well as a big date display.

The Heritage BiCompax Annual watch is an exciting part of Carl F. Bucherer’s Maison and Heritage Brand World, whose watches translate the brand’s DNA onto its clients’ wrists with models that reimagine and reinterpret some historic timepieces.

The first Heritage BiCompax Annual was launched in 2019 and taking design inspiration from an archival piece dating back to about 1950, it became an immediate hit. Combining vintage flair with contemporary features, it is the perfect expression of Carl F. Bucherer’s innovative Heritage Collection.

The Heritage BiCompax Annual ONLY WATCH Edition may be reminiscent of a vintage watch on the outside, but on the inside, it’s another story.

It has a CFB 1972 automatic chronograph caliber with a power reserve of 42 hours. It also features an annual calendar and a big date display that takes the different month lengths – 30, and 31 days – into account, which means it would only need to be corrected once a year, on the first of March.

The caseback of the striking Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual ONLY WATCH Edition is engraved with the words ONLY WATCH and PIECE UNIQUE.
