Swiss brand Carl F. Bucherer makes beautiful watches. Whatever your opinion about the brand, catalogue, or price, you’d be lying if you said the watch wasn’t beautiful. Indeed, according to the review comments, people are not surprised by some of the sporty products of this brand, and I like the chronograph very much, and I think there are bright spots in the Black His capsule collection. However, many people were not so enthusiastic about it. Where this watch seems to excel is in luxury items such as tourbillons, minute repeaters, and even more elegant time-limited dress watches. That’s exactly what the brand is focusing on, adding even more flair to the new limited edition Carl F. Bucherer Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral, available in a trio of bright colours.

Built on the existing Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral platform, the 18K rose gold case measures 43.1 mm wide and 11.57 mm thick. It may seem a bit large at first glance, but considering it’s an automatic tourbillon, the thickness and proportions are excellent, and I found it comfortable enough to wear on my 7-inch wrist. Although water resistant to only 30 meters, the watch is paired with a sporty textile strap that perfectly matches the dial and jewels. The strap is quick-release (according to press materials, the sample I tried did not) and has an 18K rose gold folding buckle. Surrounding the sapphire crystal and adding up to 11 pieces of glitz and glamor are 40 baguette-cut amethysts totaling 3.5 carats. I have to give credit here. These are all natural stones, and the effort put into matching them perfectly to both the dial and strap is impressive (and probably has something to do with why only 18 of each color are made). Part of me would like to see this in a heritage case that’s a bit slimmer and has longer lugs, but another part of me thinks a dial like this would be worth even a little extra. I realize that space really helps.



However, the Baguette set’s bezel is just an accent to the laser-cut guilloché dial. Available in blue, green or purple, the dial features a pyramid guilloché pattern, with color concentrated in the valleys and pale peaks. Rose gold-plated dauphine hands tell the time against his 11 diamond hour markers. Not intending to create a completely sterile dial (nor does it tend to be overcrowded), CFB prints the logo and brand name on the underside of the crystal, and above the tourbillon at 12 o’clock. The words “Double Peripheral” were printed on it. . The peripheral-mounted tourbillon one-ups the flying tourbillon for an even more floating look. Although the movement has nice stripes and angles, the tourbillon has a slightly too industrial finish to pair with such a great dial. The polished rose gold hands are fine, but the other components of the tourbillon generally felt a little lackluster. This will not destroy the watch, but the holes will make the packaging even more complete.

The Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral is powered by the brand’s manufacture tourbillon movement, CFB T3000, developed, designed and assembled by CFB. No, it’s not a dangerous Skynet killing machine, but it’s still pretty cool (and kudos to CFB for honestly calling this a “killing machine”) manufacturing Caliber; Many brands claim to develop, design and assemble their movements in-house, but this is not actually the case. It is necessary (or should be necessary) to produce at least some parts in-house. The movement is equipped with the brand’s signature circumferential rotor, which is thinner than traditional automatic movements, more efficient than the thin automatic movements that replace micro-rotors, and does not obstruct visibility of the movement. I really like the zigzag cutouts so you can see the gear train in action. The watch also features a stop-seconds mechanism that allows you to stop the tourbillon cage and set the seconds (unusual for tourbillon movements). Occasionally a little shimmer. The movement beats at 21,600 vibrations per hour and has a power reserve of 65 hours.

This new decorated version of the Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral is certainly not for the faint of heart. It may not be able to boast of the handmadeness or hand-finishing of other brands, but it certainly can match its beauty. These models focus on showcasing what a brand can do rather than offering something to the market. With a spectacular light play and a wearability that exceeds the size of the watch, these watches bring a dazzling treat to your wrist, even in places that are out of reach for most people. The price of the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral is: $158,500 Limited to 18 pieces of each color. Learn more about. Carl F. Bucherer website.
