Carl F. Bucherer has added a seventh luxurious timepiece to its successful Manero Flyback collection. The new retro-style version is inspired by Carl F. Bucherer models from the 1960s and 1970s.
It features a bold yet subtle combination of colours. The deep black dial gleams with a sunburst finish, while the recessed, matte silver small-seconds and stop minute subdials at 3 and 9 o’clock provide a striking contrast. Lancet-shaped, polished steel-coloured hands correspond to the appliquéd indices. The red stop second-hand contrasts with the black small-seconds and minutes counter hands. The printed chapter ring and the tachymeter scale, which allows for speeds to be determined, are painted red and white.
A double-domed sapphire crystal covers the new model’s case with anti-reflective coating on both sides. A sapphire crystal also provides the transparency to the case-back. Its retro look is completed by a kudu-leather strap in golden brown with a suede finish. It is classically round with a diameter of 43 millimetres.
The calibre is the highly complex CFB 1970 chronograph, which can be admired through the see-through sapphire-crystal case back. It has a power reserve of 42 hours and features a flyback function that allows for the recording of consecutive times in quick succession.
