The Manero Minute Repeater Anniversary Trilogy by Carl F. Bucherer represents the pinnacle of the Swiss Maison’s watchmaking prowess.
Each watch from this Trilogy is limited to one piece only. They feature peripherally mounted automatic winding system, floating tourbillon and minute repeater regulator which controls the speed at which hammers strike melodic gongs to tell the time with sound.
Entirely designed, developed and manufactured in house, the movement took six years to perfect and consists of 617 individual parts.
The first in the Manero Minute Repeater Anniversary trilogy presents the stunning intricacy of a n 18 K gold dial finished in a moss green guilloche hand milled by experienced artisans using a 200 year old lathe.
It comes in an 18K yellow gold case and is complemented by gold index marks and a matching moss green nubuck leather strap.
The second in the series showcases an 18K white gold dial overlaid with light blue mother of pearl, the color exactly matching 40 ice blue, baguette cut sapphires arranged around the bezel all contained in an 18K white gold case.
The dial finish uses naturally occurring white mother of pearl the rarest form which has been delicately hand painted from the rear to preserve its translucent and luminous qualities. This model comes with a hybrid rubber strap.
The final watch in the trilogy has an 18K rose gold case framed by a rainbow style gem-set bezel containing 40 baguette-cut gemstones including tsavorites, sapphires and rubies. This model features a black sunray dial with gemstone index marks and hybrid rubber strap.
At the heart of all three watches is the impressive CFB MR3000 caliber. This 33 jewel movement was patented in 2021 and is a COSC certified chronometer. It features an 18K gold bidirectional oscillating weight and a floating tourbillon cage at 12 o’clock.
Finally, a peripherally mounted minute repeater regulator controls when hammers strike two gongs to sound hours, quarter hours and minutes. The choreography of this mechanism can be admired through the openings at 6 o’clock of the dial.
