Carl F. Bucherer Manero Flyback: a noble chrono

This his Manero Flyback is a highly classical chronograph. The 43mm rose gold creation won’t turn the watch world on its head, but that doesn’t mean we should overlook this noble chrono.

carl-f-bucherer-manero-flyback-01Instead of looking at the overwhelming picture in harsh black carbon fibre with overwhelming dimensions, let’s focus on the details. The skeletonised sword-shaped hands in rose gold, for example, that look strong and yet sophisticated. Or the embossed indicators in the same warm material. The dial, with just two sub dials, and the typography are other traditional characteristics that will simply never go out of style provided they are well proportioned. And Carl F. Bucherer got the proportions just right. The case houses an automatic chronograph calibre called CFB 1970, which produces 42 hours of power reserve. The flyback function enables a series of time recordings without the intervention of the ‘stop button’. Perhaps not quite so functionally relevant in this day and age, but still a fine, traditional characteristic.

Price on application.
