Lucerne based Swiss watch brand Carl F. Bucherer has created a unique timepiece for "Only Watch 2015": the Manero ChronoPerpetual in white gold. Limited to a single model, this watch is to be auctioned off as the culmination of a global road show at the “Only Watch” auction for the benefit of the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy (AMM). Carl F. Bucherer is participating in "Only Watch", the prestigious auction of exquisite timepieces of select brands for the first time in 2015.
Featuring a "grand complication" perpetual calendar, the Manero ChronoPerpetual is able to show the date, day, month, year and moon phase without requiring correction. The mechanism accommodates the differing month lengths so it will only require manual adjustment in the year 2100.
The Manero ChronoPerpetual additionally combines the perpetual calendar with a complete chronograph. The complexity of such a timekeeping mechanism makes this watch a masterpiece. Only the Manero ChronoPerpetual Only Watch 2015 is specially made of pure white gold. The date of the auction, November 2015, is embossed on the black dial in a striking red, complemented by an elegant black alligator leather band. Documenting its uniqueness, an engraving on the case back reads: Only Watch 2015 – Pièce unique – Fabriquée en Suisse.
Following the fair, all the single-edition timepieces will be displayed to the public in an exhibition, which will travel around the globe, starting in Monaco on September 23. The final stop for this road show of exclusive timepieces then comes in November at the auction in Geneva, where watch enthusiasts and collectors from all over the world will have a chance to become the owner of unrivalled watchmaking excellence, embodied by the Manero ChronoPerpetual OnlyWatch 2015.
