Lot Essay

The Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Only Watch has all the charm of a vintage watch while featuring an automatic calibre, an annual calendar and a big date display.

The Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Only Watch Edition features an 18K white gold 41mm case and is presented on an elegant calf leather strap with light blue flanks.

The Heritage BiCompax Annual may be reminiscent of a vintage watch on the outside, but on the inside, it’s another story. It has a CFB 1972 automatic chronograph calibre with a power reserve of 42 hours. It also features an annual calendar and a big date display that takes the different month lengths – 30, and 31 days – into account, which means it would only need to be corrected once a year, on the first of March.

The caseback of the striking Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual ONLY WATCH edition is engraved with the words ONLY WATCH and PIECE UNIQUE – an indication that it is the only piece in the world of this edition.

EXPERIENCE
The winning bidder will be shown around one of the most picturesque cities in Switzerland, Lucerne, receive a sneak-peak into the Headquarters of Carl F. Bucherer and meet with Sascha Moeri, CFB’s CEO. The next day is comprised of a VIP tour of CFB’s manufacture, a meet-and-greet with the manufacturer team and is followed by the hand-over of their new one-of-a-kind watch. The program should span over 2 to 3 days and includes travel and accommodation.

HISTORY OF THE BRAND
Carl F. Bucherer has been synonymous with excellence, innovation, and passion since 1888. The Swiss company has become an internationally renowned global brand with a presence throughout the world, characterised by its founder’s pioneering spirit and the cosmopolitan spirit of its home city of Lucerne. Carl F. Bucherer is one of the few remaining independent family-owned Swiss watch manufacturers and is now headed in the third generation by Jörg G. Bucherer. The contemporary timepieces produced by Carl F. Bucherer combine unique design with the utmost precision and outstanding functionality. Technical innovations such as the peripheral rotor – an innovation that Carl F. Bucherer was the first manufacturer to put into series production – and the peripheral tourbillon make the company a pioneer and market leader in the field of peripheral technology.
