ONLY WATCH CHARITY AUCTION 2017
A singular Moment in time
For the first time ever, Carl F. Bucherer has added a royal-blue peripheral rotor and an 18-karat white gold case to the classic lines of the single-edition Manero Peripheral for Only Watch 2017. The proceeds of this charity auction will be donated to muscular dystrophy Research.
“The opportunity to be part of the Only Watch charity auction is an honor for us. We are wholeheartedly supporting this honorable cause by doing something we do passionately: creating watches with a truly singular character,”
Sascha Moeri, CEO of Carl F. Bucherer.
An Exceptional Single Edition
The Manero Peripheral Only Watch 2017’s clear design language emphasizes the sophisticated finish of the 18-karat white gold case. The distinctive watch features Carl F. Bucherer’s characteristic peripheral rotor, the first to be successfully developed for series production. This edition appears for the first time ever in the same royal blue that adorns the model’s leather strap and indices, a testament to the Swiss brand’s attention to detail. Alluding to the auction that will take place on November 11, the eleven of the date appears in the same shade of blue. A metallic dedication is placed on the inside of the see-through sapphire-crystal case back that reads “ONLY WATCH 2017 – Pièce unique – Fabriquée en Suisse,” adding another layer to the singular character of the timepiece. This is a watch that embodies the full innovative force of the Carl F. Bucherer manufactory by blending the sophisticated engineering of the in-house movement with a timeless design.
Grand Finale in Geneva
To promote the Only Watch charity auction, watch enthusiasts, benefactors, and media representatives are invited to a worldwide roadshow, beginning in Monaco from September 27 to 30 and culminating in an event in Geneva from November 9 to 11. As a grand finale, the one-of-a-kind timepiece can be purchased by auction on November 11 at the Four Seasons Hotel des Bergues in Geneva, starting at 2.30 p.m.
A One-Time Chance for a Special Experience
The successful bidder for the Manero Peripheral Only Watch 2017 by Carl F. Bucherer will also be invited for an unforgettable experience in the brand’s hometown, Lucerne, in the very heart of Switzerland. They will enjoy a two-night stay at the prestigious Chateau Gütsch hotel, a hotel located in one of the most picturesque locations in the world. Here they can enjoy spectacular panoramic views of Lake Lucerne and the surrounding mountains, and head out to explore the historic city. They will also enjoy the privilege of visiting the Carl F. Bucherer manufactory and experiencing the entire world of the family business.
