Carl F. Bucherer Drops Two New Variations of Manero Flyback Chronographs

Even though time intervals are nowadays measured automatically down to a fraction of a second with the help of modern technologies, hardly any other function of the mechanical wristwatch offers enthusiasts such a joy as starting, stopping and restarting a chronograph. They appreciate the hands-on live effect created by the precise mechanism, which – similar to an engine – comes to life thanks to a multitude of tiny parts such as levers, rockers and gears that work together in perfect harmony. The flyback chronograph is a particularly dynamic type of watch. It allows time measurements to be taken in immediate succession by combining the three steps – stop, reset and restart – into one.

Carl F. Bucherer unveiled its notably elegant take on the flyback chronograph in 2016. Since then, the Manero Flyback has rolled out a virtual painter’s palette of colorful variations and a reduced case size of 40mm.

The latest two versions are presented in a monochromatic color scheme. Their sunburst dial is executed in silver or black, with contrasting sub-dials for the small seconds and chronograph minutes. Unchanged are the tachymeter scale located on the periphery for calculating average speeds and the date window at 6 o’clock.

The two new Manero Flyback references are powered by the caliber CFB 1973, which is an offspring of the base caliber Sellita AMT5100. The automatic mechanical movement which ticks behind a pane of sapphire in the 40-mm diameter stainless steel case delivers 56 hours of power reserve. They retail for $7,700 on a bracelet and for $7,400 on a textile strap.

    Now that Bucherer is owned by Rolex it makes sense to stop production of the Carl F. Bucherer brand of watches since Rolex already has the Daytona. I wanted to ask WatchTime if Rolex is expected to use the Bucherer production facility and its watch makers to increase production of Rolex production in 2024?
