Carl F. Bucherer

The Swiss watch company Carl F. Bucherer was founded in 1888 when Carl Friedrich Bucherer started a small shop for jewelry and watches shop. Carl F. Bucherer was one of the first watch brands to focus on wristwatches. In 1919 a Carl F. Bucherer ladies' watches line was launched, this Art-Deco based collection quickly became a success, mostly because of the use of jewels and unusual octagonal cases. In 1970 Carl F. Bucherer introduced the first Swiss quartz watch after having developed the now historical Beta 21 quartz caliber. Today, notable Carl F. Bucherer models are the Carl F. Bucherer Patravi, Carl F. Bucherer Manero, Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi, Carl F. Bucherer Pathos, Carl F. Bucherer Alacria. If you consider buying a watch read our Carl F.
