Just as the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, a collection, no matter its eventual size or value, begins with a single watch. This is the story of the first watch that I bought for myself, one that I still own and wear 45 years later: a chronometer bearing the Bucherer name.
Carl F. Bucherer proved once again at Baselworld 2016 that the brand certainly knows how to pack a punch. One of those punches was delivered by the Manero Peripheral, which looks like the manifestation of a classic dress watch . . . until you turn it over and realize you don’t immediately see a rotor winding the automatic movement.
