Carl F. Bucherer has integrated the memories from the 1950´s to the modern time. The company has unveiled new watches for the Heritage collection, which was launched last year in New York. According to the company, the Heritage collection is not just a look back at the watchmaker’s own history, but also an ode to the zeitgeist of the 1950s .
It is about the classic design and modern mechanics together. It is also a tribute to both the tradition of the Swiss watchmaker and Carl F. Bucherer’s roots in Lucerne.
– The Heritage BiCompax Annual combines timeless design with contemporary sophistication – a watch born of more than 130 years of style and savoir faire. The Lucerne-based watchmaker has launched this chronograph – featuring a large date display, an annual calendar, and a distinctive BiCompax dial design – in two exclusive versions, each limited to 888 pieces, Bucherer says.
