Based in Lucerne, Switzerland, Carl F. Bucherer is a luxury watch brand founded in 1888 as a jewelry and watch producer. The family owned company is currently run by the third generation, making it among the oldest Swiss watch manufacturers continuously run by the founding family. Bucherer watches are high-end mechanical pieces featuring advanced complications like the tourbillon, flyback chronograph, moon phase, perpetual calendar, big date, and power reserve indicator. The watchmaker is a true Manufacture with innovative in-house movements such as the CFB A1000 caliber with a tungsten peripheral rotor, allowing for an unfettered view of the mechanics. There are five main collections for men and women. In 2016, the brand launched Bucherer BLUE in collaboration with nine luxury watch brands for color-centric special editions.
