THE NEWEST ADDITION TO THE CARL F. BUCHERER COLLECTION LOOKS BACK AT THE WATCHMAKER’S OWN HISTORY.
The Heritage BiCompax Annual by Carl F. Bucherer combines timeless design and contemporary sophistication to create a piece that has more than 130 years of style and finesse. The Lucerne-based watchmaker launched the Heritage BiCompax Annual is available in two exclusive versions that are limited to 888 pieces and feature a large date display, an annual calendar and a distinctive BiCompax dial design.
CARL F. BUCHERER MAKES A MARK
1956 was an eventful year for design and vintage lovers. Switzerland was celebrating a premier of its own as it was around this time that Carl F. Bucherer introduced a chronograph with a design that was ahead of its time. A delicate 34 mm case with curved lines combined with elongated chronograph push buttons gives the watch a sporty look while the gold plating adds the element of elegance. This piece from the Carl F. Bucherer archives served the watchmakers as the inspiration for the Heritage BiCompax Annual – a modern representation of the original classic.
CLASSIC DESIGN MEETS MODERN MECHANICS IN THE NEW CARL F. BUCHERER RANGE
The new Heritage BiCompax Annual has adopted the elegant shape of its predecessor, but in a modern 41 mm diameter stainless steel case. It is available in two versions, each limited to just 888 pieces – a tribute to the founding year of the Lucerne company with the long-standing tradition in 1888. Modern and pure, the stainless steel model boasts a silver dial, black totalizators, and a structured rubber strap. The bicolor model features a rose-and-champagne dial with the bezel, push buttons, and crown crafted from precious 18 k rose gold – a subtle nod to the baroque opulence of Lucerne. This exquisite horological package fastens to the wrist with a cognac brown calfskin strap.
