Now, 72 years later, it makes a profound impression on everyone who sees it navigating Switzerland’s highways and byways. The Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual Lucerne is a watch inspired by this vintage automobile that has played an important role in the lives of two generations of the Bucherer family. It is a fitting tribute from a great brand to its founding family and their cherished automobile. With its classic design appeal, its chronograph and annual calendar complications, this watch has a dial that will catch every eye in the room and is a stunning nod to the city of Lucerne.
The silver-colored dial on display through the double-domed sapphire crystal features light blue subdials with chronograph minutes and small seconds counters, which are complemented by a light blue ring with a tachymeter scale surrounding the dial. The light blue recalls the color of Jörg G. Bucherer’s lovingly restored automobile. The watch’s dial also boasts a month aperture between 4 and 5 o’clock and a bold big date window just below 12 o’clock.
