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 latest addition to the Carl F. Bucherer Manero Flyback collection combines the beauty of precious metal with unabashed retro charm and sophisticated watchmaking technology. The new Flyback Chronograph boasts an 18 k rose gold case that houses a column-wheel mechanism, ensuring both precision and ease of use. The vintage character of the timepiece gets an elegant contemporary twist thanks to black and red accents and a kudu-leather strap.

While the answer varies from person to person, they all agree that free spirits trust their own instincts and forge their own paths.
