Carl F. Bucherer Heritage BiCompax Annual 41mm
 
The Story
1956 was the year Carl F. Bucherer introduced its 34mm bi-compax chronograph. With its two-tone aesthetics, the chronograph came with a gold-plated case and a “salmon” pink dial with protruding rectangular push-pieces and a large crown. The juxtaposition of a fancy gold trimmed case and tool watch functionality clearly positioned the model as an elegant gentlemen’s chronograph. This handsome vintage watch was chosen by the brand as a base for its new “Heritage” collection, starting in 2019 with the Heritage Bicompax Annual. But rather than just bringing an old design back to life, CFB decided to give it a mechanical twist, by implementing one of the most practical types of calendar existing.
 
Following the first limited editions of 2019, which comprised a silver-colored panda dial in steel, this year the Luzern-based brand introduces its exact opposite, a watch that is once again encased in stainless steel but that features a so-called “reversed panda” dial, in sunray-brushed black with silver-colored sub-counters. This darker attire gives the model a slightly more contemporary look and feel, as well as a more compact overall style.
 
Other than this new dial, this new edition of the Heritage Bicompax Annual retains the same 41mm case, with its brushed surfaces and multiple polished accents – on the thin bezel or the side of the lugs. A reference to its vintage inspiration, the watch features well-integrated and ergonomic rectangular pushers. It is protected by a double-domed sapphire crystal, reinforcing its retro look.
