MANERO Tourbillon Limited Edition.

20 Nov 2013

A deserved award for an outstanding achievement.

In view of its complexity and mechanical sophistication, the tourbillon is regarded as one of the greatest challenges and as the supreme discipline in the art of watchmaking. Now, the Manero Tourbillon created and manufactured in-house by Swiss watch brand Carl F. Bucherer has won the Austrian Chrono Award, underscoring its status as one of the world’s most beautiful watches.

The production of a tourbillon is technically very complex, and for this reason there are only a few watchmakers in the world who are able to realize this complication. For all who love this traditional masterpiece of the art of watchmaking, Carl F. Bucherer presents the Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition. The concept of the tourbillon was first developed as long ago as the end of the 18th century. Its function is to compensate for the errors in accuracy of a mechanical watch that are caused by the effects of gravity. As a result of the different positions of the watch on the wearer's wrist, gravity affects how quickly or slowly the balance wheel moves. In order to minimize this influence, a rotating cage was designed to house the balance wheel. This device makes it possible for the balance wheel and escapement to rotate around themselves - making them independent of the position of the watch.

The verdict: outstanding.
At the presentation ceremony for the 11th annual Chrono Awards in Vienna, the Manero Tourbillon won a very special honor: the limited model took 2nd place in the First Class category from 25,000 euros and upward. The Chrono Award is Austria's only watch event that categorizes the models submitted not in terms of style but price segment. Every year it presents awards to the most beautiful watches in six categories. The results are decided by readers of two Austrian magazines, FORMAT and trend, who this year chose their favorite models from the 130 different watches submitted.

Integrating the supreme discipline.
The Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition combines the classic elegance of the Manero range with the tourbillon, which is, quite simply, the most sublime expression of the art of fine watchmaking. An opening in the dial at 6 o'clock provides a view of this fascinating mechanism. The filigree delicacy of the complication makes it a centerpiece of the very highest quality. In addition to the tourbillon itself, further special features have also been integrated into the watch. From the center, the date is indicated by a hand. The numerals of the date scale change orientation at 3 and 9 o'clock, so that they can be clearly read at a glance. Another unusual feature of the Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition is the above-average power reserve of 70 hours. The remaining energy can be read off via the power reserve indication at 9 o'clock. The final refinement on the dial is the 24-hour indication at 12 o'clock.

Clarity and elegance.
In spite of the large number of functions and indications, Carl F. Bucherer has ensured optimum clarity of the dial in the Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition. This was a challenge that the designers fulfilled by means of generous proportions and the incorporation of different levels. With the strikingly positioned, wedge-shaped hour markers, the striking letters and numerals typical of Carl F. Bucherer, and the tapering hours and minutes hands, the traditional complication of the tourbillon has been given a contemporary interpretation. This elegantly luxurious look is skillfully continued in the case, which is made of fine rose gold.

A Watch of Extraordinary Value
The high level of exclusivity of the Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition is ensured by the strictly limited edition, with only 188 of these prestigious timepieces available worldwide. With this new model from the Manero Collection, Carl F. Bucherer has succeeded in creating a watch to delight all connoisseurs who value traditional watchmaking artistry combined with optimum functionality, presented in a classic yet impressive exterior. The Manero Tourbillon Limited Edition is a watch that more than earns the title of a "timepiece of extraordinary value".
