Carl F. Bucherer presents a one-of-a-kind Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral timepiece created for the Only Watch 2023 charity auction.
This unique model features a high-tech, forged carbon case. Lighter and stronger than steel it boasts a distinctive carbon flecked black marbled appearance with an urban feel. It is complemented by an almost completely all black line up of components.
A domed, matt black dial is complemented with anthracite wedge hands and wedge index marks at 3, 6, and 9 o’clock, offering subtle contrasts of color for a minimalist design. A black, hybrid rubber strap matches the carbon aesthetic of the case.
This dark appearance is vividly offset by select components finished in a striking hue that matches the color of the Only Watch logo.
From the front, a flash of color at 12 o’clock highlights CFB’s signature “floating” tourbillon – its second hand and cage arms executed in an eye-catching green. Neither mounted in the movement’s main-plate nor attached to a bridge, this shock-proof tourbillon is peripherally supported by three ceramic bearings and appears to float in space – it is one of the brand’s most intricate achievements.
Visible through the sapphire crystal case back, the oscillating weight of a peripherally mounted automatic winding system has been finished in the same vibrant green. With black-coated bridges and gray engravings, the only other colors come from gemstones visible in the 33-jewel movement.
