Carl F Bucherer, Swiss Luxury watch brand have recently launched their new collection for ladies called “Manero Auto Date Love”, which is created jointly with their global Brand Ambassador Li Bingbing, a popular Chinese actress. The LOVE comes in nine elegant variations featuring bold colors and high-quality Swiss automatic movements. The ladies’ watch collection, which was inspired by Li Bingbing’s charitable foundation L.O.V.E. Responsible Life, is dedicated to the multifaceted modern woman.
The Manero Auto Date LOVE has nine different models in this collection in different colours.
Three of the pieces feature vibrant red dials with a sprinkling of gold dust – an unusual finishing that gives a warm, luxurious glow, reflecting the light with every movement. The dial is framed by a case in either elegant rose gold or, in the refined two-tone version, by a case in 18 k rose gold and stainless steel, while a red Louisiana alligator-leather strap or a stainless steel and rose gold bracelet finish off the pieces with a harmonious flair. The crowning piece among this trio features a solid rose gold case and a bezel encrusted with 62 diamonds. Vibrant red combines with the luster of gold and brightly sparkling accents in a fabulously luxurious and infinitely feminine timepiece.
The three LOVE models with a petrol blue dial comes in a choice of a two-tone case or a case in pure stainless steel. An alligator-leather strap in a matching color complements the intense color of the dials.
The final three pieces in the collection have white mother-of-pearl dials, stainless steel cases, and choice of a purple alligator-leather strap or sporty steel bracelet. One member of the trio is even adorned with 62 diamonds.
All nine models feature a feminine and contemporary 35.5-millimeter case diameter along with a delicate leaf motif adorning the small-seconds subdial.
The beating Swiss heart within
These elegant ladies’ timepieces are powered by Swiss automatic movements . The CFB 1971 calibre boasts 42 hours of power reserve and acts as a reliable engine for the hour, minute, as well as the small seconds at 6 o’clock, and the date display at 3 o’clock. The sapphire crystal case back allows the wearer to admire the fine finishing and precise motions of the movement within.
L.O.V.E for Values
International movie star Li Bingbing founded L.O.V.E. Responsible Life in 2009. The foundation supports various charitable projects and campaigns for people to adopt an environmentally responsible lifestyle. The Responsible Life initiative has already influenced millions of people and increased awareness of environmental protection. Each letter in L.O.V.E. represents a series of values or issues that Li Bingbing aims to promote with her organization, such as Life, Original, Value, and Earth.
Li Bingbing has created L.O.V.E. Responsible Life as a reflection of her values. Values also play a decisive role at Carl F. Bucherer. Operating under the motto “Treasuring Values”, the Swiss watchmaker takes great care to uphold the four principles of the brand: sustainability, excellence, tradition, and innovation. These values serve as the foundation for everything that Carl F. Bucherer does and creates, and the ManeroAutoDate LOVE is no exception. The new nine-piece collection is the embodiment of everything the Lucerne-based brand stands for: sustainability via the partnership with Li Bingbing’s L.O.V.E. Responsible Life, excellence as reflected in the dial design, and the use of traditional craftsmanship and innovative production techniques in creating the watches themselves.
