The radical aesthetic of the new releases shows the 135-year-old Swiss watchmaker signalling a more colourful future and a joyful embrace of modern style. Nowhere could that be clearer than with the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral Paradise. This limited-edition scene-stealer looks set to redefine Carl F. Bucherer, with an 18 K rose gold case framed by a full-spectrum bezel containing 40 baguette-cut gemstones including tsavorites, sapphires, and rubies.
Every gemstone is unique – naturally occurring and naturally coloured – and has been painstakingly selected to ensure each one merges seamlessly with the next. This challenge was made all the harder with additional gemstone index marks on the black sunray dial that exactly match the corresponding stones on the bezel. Rose-gold-plated hands complement the case, while a black hybrid rubber strap completes the dynamic look.
Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral Paradise – A celebration of modern life
As such, the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral Paradise is a contemporary milestone that represents the sheer diversity of modern life, created to reflect the mindset of today’s entrepreneurs and their pursuit of a range of passions, in work and life. They’re uninhibited, open-minded, and see the potential in every challenge – and just like them, the Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral Paradise’s celebration of colour is impossible to pin down as one thing or another. In nature, a rainbow is a metaphor for the realization of our dreams: this singular watch says paradise is all around us; however, you choose to define it.
Beyond its eye-catching design, this is also one of CFB’s finest timepieces and an expression of Carl F. Bucherer watchmakers’ supreme finesse. As a “Double Peripheral,” it features two of the brand’s signature peripherally mounted technologies in its 33-jewel movement: an automatic winding system and a “floating” tourbillon cage. Neither mounted in the movement’s main plate nor attached to an overlying bridge, the shock-proof tourbillon is supported peripherally by three ceramic ball bearings and seems to float in space.
Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral Paradise – A dynamic new era
Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral Paradise showcases a dynamic new era for CFB. It adds to January’s launch of the stunning, all-black CFB Capsule Collection, which includes cases of forged carbon and demonstrates how the brand is also experimenting with new materials.
As the rest of the releases in 2023 will demonstrate, with increasingly vivid designs launched throughout the year, CFB is actively working to inspire more people to begin #ExploringTime.
