It is only a year since Bucherer (owner of Tourneau in the United States) introduced its range of special edition watches, collectively known as Bucherer Blue pieces,
The launch was timed to coincide with the reopening of the Bucherer Time Machine flagship in New York.
The watches are all made exclusively for Bucherer, thanks to its historic relationships with brands in Switzerland, and are sold only in Bucherer stores around the world.
As the name suggests, Bucherer Blue watches all have at least an accent of blue in their styling.
The range evolves over time, with some watches staying in the Bucherer Blue line-up for years and others regularly replaced by the manufacturers.
This fall, there are three additions from independent watchmakers Girard Perregaux, H. Moser & Cie and l’Epée.
Girard Perregaux Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges Bucherer BLUE
Welcoming the Three Flying Bridges Bucherer BLUE, a timepiece celebrating Girard- Perregaux’s virtuosity through a blue lens.
The Tourbillon with Three Bridges is considered the world’s oldest watch movement still in production, epitomizing the ability of Girard-Perregaux to reinvent yesterday’s tradition for today’s connoisseur: With time, the bridges of this iconic design have evolved from an arrow-ended shape to a more contemporary “Neo” shape, used in the Flying Bridges.
The architecture of the movement has also evolved to give the impression of a levitating movement inside the case. The Three Flying Bridges truly is a masterwork of Haute Horlogerie.
The titanium case is fitted between two sapphire crystal glass boxes reinforcing the visual effect of aerial delicacy. This timepiece with its unique marking in blue tones on the barrel and bridges is limited to 18 exclusive pieces.
H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Tourbillon Bucherer BLUE
The H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Tourbillon Bucherer BLUE is the first Streamliner limited edition manufactured exclusively for a partner, created to celebrate the longstanding collaboration between H. Moser & Cie. and Bucherer.
The Streamliner collection, which has only been on the market for a short time and is already considered a holy grail by many collectors, combines the codes of minimalism and contemporary elegance for which H. Moser & Cie. has become known.
The integrated steel bracelet, every detail of the individual links and the cushion-shaped case of the Streamliner timepieces pay tribute to Bucherer BLUE through their bezel with blue baguette-cut sapphires that shine their light on the iconic fumé dial.
Putting an inventive spin on the Streamliner tradition, the timepiece is the very first partner edition to unite a double-hairspring tourbillon movement and a Streamliner case.
L’Epée 1839 Time Fast Bucherer BLUE
Presenting the Time Fast x Bucherer BLUE, an exceptionally crafted kinetic race car sculpture that tells the time. Creators L’Epée 1839 and Bucherer BLUE were united by their desire to be ahead of time and their devotion to manufactural excellence.
The Time Fast evokes the dream of becoming a race driver. The single-seater race car with a 50s classics fluid design captures the essence of childhood fantasy elaborately.
Its engine is composed of a tiered movement with an 8-day power reserve, shaped to the bodywork in the recognisable Bucherer BLUE finish.
In a tribute to childhood, the mechanical motor is wound like a pull-back toy car.
