Why We Love it

One of the best parts of our job is pulling from obscurity watches that should be, for one reason or another, enjoyed and admired by an ever-growing collector and enthusiast community.

If you've never heard of Bucherer before, we wouldn't blame you.  The brand, which was minted in the late 1800s and began producing watches in the early 1900s, has remained relatively obscure, despite its presence in the contemporary luxury marketplace. 

But their current collection is a far cry from the watches they were producing throughout the 1960 and 70s.  Small, simple chronographs were at the heart of the brand, and while a range of Swiss movement and case manufactures were supplying them, Bucherer remained in the forefront, with dials proudly bearing the brand's respected name.  

This particular piece in an example of Bucherer at its best: The circular 35mm case with straight lugs is pleasingly simple, the dial, once a sunburst silver that has taken on a lovely genuine patina, is balanced and free of excess complication with a running seconds subdial at 9:00 and a minute counter at 3:00.  The blue steel sweep hand is straightforward and simple.  The spartan design is complemented by the elegant 3mm pushers.  

Inside, Bucherer utilized the highly-regarded movement of the era, the Landeron 248, a manual-winding drivetrain that found its way into many favored brands of the day.  

With Heuers and Breitlings of the era fetching big money, every enthusiast should be on the lookout for a solid chronograph that they can enjoy without breaking the bank...
