A passion of mastery
Every timepiece has its own beating heart: the movement. Developing the movement calls for an innovative culture, extreme precision and conceptual finesse – three things that Carl F. Bucherer possesses in abundance. Today, Carl F. Bucherer is one of Switzerland’s leading watch manufacturers, developing outstanding mechanical movements and functional modules in its own workshops. A company with this level of watchmaking expertise is often referred to by the French term manufacture. One of the watchmaking milestones created at Carl F. Bucherer is the CFB A1000 caliber. The CFB manufactured movement was first used in a watch in 2008. In subsequent years, five further functional modules took shape in Carl F. Bucherer’s workshops. They included several patents, such as the dynamic shock absorption system found in this in-house caliber. Together they make up the CFB A1000 caliber family.
Savoir-faire since 1888
Every timepiece that leaves the Carl F. Bucherer workshops is a miracle in miniature. More than 100 components seamlessly intermesh to make a Carl F. Bucherer what it essentially is: a masterpiece of the fine art of watchmaking. But something that is true for the watch itself also applies to the company that develops and manufactures it. After all, it is not unusual for a large number of specialists from a wide variety of disciplines to be involved in the creation of a Carl F. Bucherer watch.
