In 1888, Swiss visionary Carl Friedrich Bucherer began his first Swiss watch shop in Lucerne, a compact city in Switzerland, known for its beauty and medieval architecture. This beautiful city has remained the setting for the creation of Carl F. Bucherer’s luxurious timepieces for the last 133 years. Passed down through generations Carl F. Bucherer remains family-owned making it one of the oldest luxury Swiss watchmakers continuously held by the founding family. 

Founded on continuity, free spirit and entrepreneurial independence, Bucherer’s goal was for the company to remain in the hands of his family in the city of Lucerne, wanting his legacy to remain “boldly independent.” His remaining wish also perfectly describes the essence of Bucherer’s time pieces as they are truly one of a kind. 

Beautifully crafted with diamond-shaped applied indexes, skeletonized hands, and combination of brushed and matte dial finishes, as well as the nicely beveled lugs on the case, the beauty of Carl F. Bucherer watches can be found in the exquisite details. Also family owned and operated in the heart of Treasure Valley, Idaho, Simmons Fine Jewelry shares the same passion for luxury and swiss watches. Located in Meridian, Idaho, Simmon’s is the proud flagship retailer for Carl F. Bucherer.  Shop our entire selection of Carl F. Bucherer, or shop some of our favorites below.

The Manero Flyback is a classic example of the Manero family, but as a typical Carl F. Bucherer timepiece, it has something distinctly unique to offer watch lovers: the sophisticated CFB 1970 chronograph movement with flyback function.

A magnificent new product – the Manero Peripheral, for example – calls for no less magnificent a stage, for it unites everything that has always distinguished Carl F. Bucherer as a watch manufacturer: state-of-the-art engineering and classic watchmaking expertise.

Traditional watchmaking artistry, the highest technical and innovative standards, striking design – all combined in one watch, the Patravi from Carl F. Bucherer.

Carl F. Bucherer moonphase watches for men and women keep the phases of the moon close at hand. The moon has long been an admired and mysterious force, responsible for the tides and providing a visual guide for everything from navigation to planting crops. With a moonphase watch, you always know whether the moon will be waxing or waning, bright or dim, a full circle or a slim crescent. These watches are beautiful and stylish ways to keep track of the moon and the time simultaneously.

The Heritage BiCompax Annual combines timeless design with contemporary sophistication – a watch born of more than 130 years of style and savoir faire.
