Carl F. Bucherer presents the new Manero ChronoPerpetual, combining a perpetual calendar with moon phase and leap year displays and a flyback chronograph with tachymeter scale. A Manufacture movement from Vaucher, with contemporary decoration in the distinctive style of the Lucerne-based Bucherer brand, creates the exclusive mechanical foundation for this new timepiece.
The Manero ChronoPerpetual presents its myriad of temporal information in a clear, logical, and legible fashion. The displays at 12, 6 and 9 are divided into inner and outer sections or tracks, separated by a fine black line and further set apart by different colors and finishes: brushed silver contrasts with matte white. The inner tracks of the counters at 6 and 9 display the chronograph hours and minutes via shorter, black hands. Chronograph seconds are counted by the large, central seconds hand. Small continuous seconds are located at 12. The tapered hour and minute hands of the primary time display are Superluminova-coated to enhance nighttime legibility.
The outer track of the displays at 12, 6 and 9 indicate the day, date and month via longer, gold hands. The 9 o’clock display also houses a leap-year indicator at its center. The moon phase indication has a contemporary design, with an anthracite-colored background and a silver-colored moon disk.
The Manero ChronoPerpetual is available in rose gold or stainless steel. The case, which measures 42.5 x 14.3 mm, has been subtly reworked to add distinguishing features. Satin finish and polished elements add contrast, and the lugs are more angular than in earlier models. The bezel has a concave shape while the sapphire crystal is domed. The caseback with integrated sapphire crystal permits a clear view of the 49-jewel mechanical engine with its 22-carat rose-gold oscillating weight.
The Manero ChronoPerpetual is limited to 150 pieces in stainless steel, and 100 pieces in rose gold.
