When putting in top performances out on the field, pro football player Christian Fassnacht uses his excellence, creativity, and precision – qualities that are just as important in the world of watchmaking as they are in football. Carl F. Bucherer is dedicated to upholding these values both with its exceptional timepieces and through its enduring commitment to maintaining long-standing partnerships. The Lucerne watch manufacturer is therefore very proud to announce the Swiss star midfielder as the most recent addition to the CFB family.

Lights, camera, action! A range of big- and small-name celebrities gathered for the global premiere of the Hollywood movie John Wick: Chapter 3 in New York City on May 9, 2019. Swiss watch manufacturer Carl F. Bucherer was also there, having supported director and friend of the brand Chad Stahelski with his latest work. After featuring in the first two episodes about contract killer and car fan John Wick, the Lucerne manufacturer’s timepieces once again show the time of day in John Wick: Chapter 3, this time on the wrists of Halle Berry and Keanu Reeves.

The vintage character of the timepiece gets an elegant contemporary twist thanks to black and red accents and a kudu-leather strap.
What does it mean to be a free spirit? It’s a question we have asked the entrepreneurs and and adventurers who are featured in this issue of 1888 – from the al fresco chefs who cook on bonfires in some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes to a female tailor who broke the mould in the bastion of tradition that is London’s Savile Row. While the answer varies from person to person, they all agree that free spirits trust their own instincts and forge their own paths.
