In 1888, Carl Friedrich Bucherer started his first watch store in the Swiss city of Lucerne. His eponymous company, far from being a local phenomenon, was the cornerstone of a horological lineage that’s spanned 130 years and across the whole world.
Here at Costello Jewelry Company, we’re pleased to be an authorized dealer for this magnificent watch brand and we’re always ready to discuss the inimitable styles that make up each collection from Carl F. Bucherer.
The Men’s Patravi Collection
When you’re shopping for a Carl F. Bucherer men’s watch that represents high technology, you can’t do much better than the men’s Patravi collection.
The nine subcollections we offer at Costello Jewelry Company all represent different aesthetic takes on the Patravi formula, but beneath the rounded square case of the T-Graph or the refined 18k rose gold bezel of the Chronodate Annual, the watch lover can find exclusive chronometer calibers and a 55-hour power reserve, among other technologically superior traits. Also, remember that Patravi watches boast a sapphire crystal coated on both sides with anti-reflective material for that extra level of utility.
The Men’s Manero Collection
While Manero collection watches are expertly crafted with a comparable level of Swiss engineering of which Patravis can boast, the men’s Manero watch is clearly a power watch: It’s a timepiece built for being paired with a business suit. The novel CFB A2000 caliber from Carl F. Bucherer is housed in a case that immediately catches attention: The watch lover can aim for the clean lines and smooth dials of the Peripheral subcollection or the contemporary cool that comes with the visible movements of the Tourbillon collection, but in either case, the end result is a watch that catches attention no matter where a man goes.
The Women’s Alacria Collection
Of the Carl F. Bucherer women’s watches collections we offer, Alacria represents the highest expression of luxury. The softly indented rectangular cases of the Alacria subcollections are lovingly sculpted from materials like 18k yellow gold and are decorated with a treasure trove of diamonds in their bezels. When paired with playful details like Art Nouveau-style numerals, the vintage beige dials that speak to timeless quality, as well as the technological supremacy of the CFB 1850 caliber designed by the engineers employed in Lucerne, the woman who wants a top-shelf watch to add to her wardrobe knows she has something special here.
The Women’s Pathos Collection
“Pathos” means “strong feeling” in Ancient Greek, and it’s clear to see why Carl F. Bucherer chose this name for the Pathos collection of their women’s watches. The Alacria collection is ideal for the woman who wants to accentuate a gorgeous evening look, but Pathos is the watch made for adding light and beauty to a dancer’s wrist, or a hiker’s, or any woman who wants to wear a gorgeous watch that’s also durable. The stainless steel that makes up the Patravis’ cases can stand up to a lot of knocking-around without sacrificing the beauty that comes with diamonds, 18k gold, and mother-of-pearl dials.
