The latest addition to the Carl F Bucherer Manero Flyback collection combines the beauty of precious metal with unabashed retro charm and sophisticated watchmaking technology.
The new Flyback Chronograph boasts an 18k rose gold case that houses a column-wheel mechanism, ensuring both precision and ease of use. The vintage character of the timepiece gets an elegant contemporary twist thanks to black and red accents and a kudu-leather strap.
The new Manero Flyback Chronograph cuts a timeless and refined figure on the wrist. Taking design cues from Carl F Bucherer models from the 1960s and 1970s, the timepiece captures the spirit of these bygone eras. The smooth curves of the 43 mm case in 18k rose gold have been inspired by the watches of those decades, as have the timepiece’s other carefully considered design elements: convex sapphire crystal, striking mushroom push buttons, perforated rose gold-coloured lancet-shaped hands, and wedge-shaped applied indices.
The decidedly vintage flair of the new model is beautifully balanced by its modern elements. The black sunburst-finished dial pops against the two silver-coloured totalizator subdials – a small seconds display and a 30-minute counter – while bold red accents such as the “Flyback” lettering and the outline of the chapter ring add another stunning contrast. The handsome horological package is rounded out by a slim stopwatch second hand in red, a tachymeter scale, and a date display at 6 o’clock.
The strap is crafted from dark gray kudu leather with a suede finish and features red contrast stitching along with an 18k rose gold folding pin buckle.
The Manero Flyback is powered by the CFB 1970 calibre automatic movement with 42 hours of power reserve, which is beautifully decorated with intricate circular grain finishing and Geneva stripes. The beating heart of the watch can be admired through the see-through sapphire-crystal case back.
