The partnership between Carl F. Bucherer and the Swiss Football Association (SFA) has existed since 2016 and is set to enjoy a new highlight with the upcoming soccer milestone in Russia. As official timekeeper of the Swiss national soccer team, the Swiss luxury watch manufacturer from Lucerne has issued the players a timepiece selected by the squad itself to mark this historic event: the striking Manero Flyback in rose gold with a black dial and black strap.
The retro style of the Manero Flyback family is highlighted even more with this new edition. Inspired by Carl F. Bucherer models from the 1960s and 1970s, the latest Manero Flyback features a bold yet subtle combination of colors in the form of a black dial with silver-colored totalizators. Fine touches of red complete the harmonious contrast. The retro style is continued even throughout the new-style strap. The suede finish of the golden brown kudu-leather strap gives it an extremely natural appearance while ensuring optimum comfort for the wearer.
