Carl F. Bucherer’s designers strove for clarity on the dial, despite the multiple complications and tourbillon aperture. The watch has the wedge-shaped hour markers and tapering hours and minutes hands typical of the Manero line, and the elegant, serif font used for the text and numerals is also common on Carl F. Bucherer watches. The 18k rose gold case is 41.08 mm in diameter and water-resistant to 30 meters. It has a sapphire crystal, which is coated with nonreflective material, and a sapphire exhibition caseback. The strap is hand-stitched Louisiana alligator leather, with a rose-gold folding clasp. The Carl F. Bucherer Manero Tourbillon is limited to only 188 pieces worldwide, and whereas the base prices on the vast majority of tourbillon watches break the six-figure price barrier, this one comes in just under it, at $98,800.

Bucherer timepieces, such as the Patrvai ScubaTec, the brand’s first divers’ watch — up close and in person. Click here for more on the event and to order tickets for one of the four event cities.
