Good things come in threes!BASELWORLD 2017: Three new variants of the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Flyback

A certain something with a classic look – this is the mark of the Manero series in the collection by Carl F. Bucherer. This is especially true for the Manero Flyback, available in a red gold or stainless steel case, exhibited in its new variants at Baselworld.

The traditional brand from Lucerne has given the watch dial special attention and created three highly unique timepieces, each with its own character.

Stylish, classic and precious

The Manero Flyback is the perfect companion for the modern gentleman with a love of refined technology. The Flyback chronograph presents a cool and stylish look with its stainless steel case and its cockpit framed in a matt bluish-grey shade. Depending on the light, the color reflections vary between a soft green and a subtle blue. The hands and raised indices in stainless steel as well as with an alligator leather strap in gray round off the stylish look. The Manero in its 18-karat red gold case with matt black dial exudes a classic, pure style. The counters for both the small seconds at 9 o’clock and the stop minute at 3 o’clock are recessed and give the dial a sense of three-dimensionality with the raised outer flange. The design of the red gold chronograph is closely based on Carl F. Bucherer's new visual identity and leaves a particularly exquisite impression. The primary color of the galvanized dial is a shimmering golden shade of champagne. The red gold color of the case harmonizes with the hands and ten raised indices.

Classic rounded lines

In either red gold or stainless steel, the case reflects the lines typical of the Manero series, featuring its classic and modern round dial measuring 43 mm in diameter. Precise contours around the edges add an esthetic contrast to the soft curves of the bezel. The polished push buttons controlling the chronograph function not only emphasize the classic character of the watch, they are also highly functional with their larger surface area. This means the chronograph can be adjusted with just slight pressure from the fingertip.

Chronograph with additional functionality

The Manero Flyback chronograph is powered by the sophisticated CFB 1970 caliber, an automatic movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. Short-time measurement is regulated using a gearwheel; it also offers a Flyback function that enables several time intervals to be measured consecutively. The term flyback refers to the movement performed by the stop hands when the reset button is pushed while the stopwatch is running. The chronograph hands fly back to zero, while the wheels continue to run in the background – allowing the hands to resume as soon as the reset button is released. With conventional timepieces, it is necessary to press the button three times in order to measure successive time intervals: To stop the chronograph, reset and re-measure. The three new variants of the Manero Flyback once again emphasize the savoir-faire cultivated by Carl F. Bucherer in the heart of Switzerland since 1888.
