Carl F. Bucherer, headquartered in Lucerne, Switzerland, is a growing watch brand, but it is still closely related to its parent company Bucherer. Bucherer is a major watch retail chain in Switzerland and will soon become more popular in North America. Acquired the functions of Tourneau, a traditional American watch retail chain. I made this point because I think it is necessary to understand the special appeal and purpose of the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Peripheral 43mm watch I am reviewing here today.
Lucern is a traditional tourist destination in Switzerland, whether it is sightseeing or shopping. Buying watches in Lucerne (expensive) is a long-standing tradition for people in many countries. Bucherer is in an ideal location, so it can grow and develop. The development of its internal brand is to study the function of many people buying goods. In fact, if you look at the Carl F. Bucherer brand, I believe most of the products in it are based on what the company thinks tourists in Lucern are looking for in watches, and the other part of the product line is Carl F. Bucherer’s Efforts to propose market original products suitable for enthusiasts.
Through this multi-directional product design method, replica Carl F. Bucherer watches have gained an interesting middle ground. The watch may be designed for more mainstream luxury consumption, but serious watch enthusiasts should be considered. Manero Peripheral 43mm is such a watch. On the outside is the iconic aesthetics of a unique “exquisite Swiss watch”, while on the inside is a rather special self-made movement with a high overall manufacturing quality. In some ways, Manero Peripheral is very suitable for those who want to wear some good clothes to please themselves but do not want to announce this fact to the world.
Carl F. Bucherer offers two case sizes for the Manero Peripheral series-if you don’t understand this fact, it’s easy to get confused because of Manero Peripheral timepieces with widths of 40mm and 43mm. They all look the same. The part I am reviewing is Manero Peripheral 43mm, which is larger in the corresponding case (thickness is 11.2mm and water resistance is 30 meters). The lugs make the distance between the lugs only 50mm.
The steel case has been exquisitely polished and is made of high-quality quality at a price comparable to that of a timepiece. Carl F. Bucherer (Carl F. Bucherer) produces cheaper watches, but without an internal movement, as is the case here. The movement itself is Carl F. Bucherer replica CFB A2050, which is a special dial of the A2000 movement series. The A2000 is the second-generation movement after the innovative A1000 movement. This movement is the first modern movement with a peripheral automatic rotor released ten years ago.
Compared with A1000, A2000 is a movement with a more classic appearance, and its functions are different in other minor aspects. The decoration of the movement is traditional, with the bridge surface and slanted edges polished in the style of Côtes de Genève. The sharp angle of the movement really helps to position it as a modern machine. The movement runs on the A2050 at 4Hz and has a 55-hour power reserve, providing time with auxiliary seconds and date. The movement is certified as a COSC chronograph, and the main reason for its fame is the automatic winding system.
The peripheral rotor is the rotor that surrounds the movement instead of covering it. This will be possible when the watch movement engineer can place it horizontally instead of vertically. Nowadays, the love for large watches means that the outer winding system becomes possible. Do they have a technical advantage? not really. They really help to make the movement finer than before. The main advantage of peripheral automatic rotors is that they keep the movement unhindered. Therefore, value is actually about display-for luxury watches, this is an important consideration when making purchasing decisions.
First of all, I like the uniqueness of the A2050 movement. It looks different from most other watch movements, which is a good thing. It seems to be designed for durability and long life, rather than just as a mechanical motion that plays the same role as most other mechanical motions. I also like Carl F. Bucherer’s very traditional dial layout. Many watches have the same dial information, so what Carl F. Bucherer tries to do is to provide well-known dishes with his own flavor. This may be the place where tourists have the greatest demand for timepieces in Lucerne. It helps explain why the Manero Peripheral 43mm is such a timepiece that it took a lot of effort to look familiar and unique.
