Carl F. Bucherer Flyback Chronograph a vintage flair
The new Carl F. Bucherer Flyback Chronograph boasts an 18 k rose gold case that houses a column-wheel mecha- nism, ensuring both precision and ease of use. Taking design cues from Carl F. Bucherer models from the 1960s and 1970s, the timepiece captures the spirit of these bygone eras. The smooth curves of the 43 mm case have been inspired by the watches of those decades, as have the timepiece’s other carefully considered design elements: convex sapphire crystal, strik- ing mushroom push buttons, perforated rose gold-colored lancet-shaped hands, and wedge-shaped applied indices.
The decidedly vintage flair of the new model is beautifully balanced by its modern elements. The black sunburst-finished dial pops against the two silver-colored totalizator subdials – a small seconds display and a 30-minute counter – while bold red accents such as the “Flyback” lettering and the outline of the chapter ring add another stunning contrast. The handsome horological package is rounded out by a slim stopwatch second hand in red, a tachymeter scale, and a date display at 6 o’clock. The strap is crafted from dark gray kudu leather with a suede finish and features red contrast stitching along with an 18 k rose gold folding pin buckle.
