The radical aesthetic of the new release shows the 135-year-old Swiss watchmaker signaling a more colorful future and a joyful embrace of modern style. Nowhere could that be clearer than with the limited edition Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral Paradise.
The timepiece has an 18 K rose gold case framed by a full-spectrum bezel containing 40 baguette-cut gemstones including tsavorites, sapphires, and rubies. Every gemstone has been selected to ensure each one merges seamlessly with the next. This challenge was made all the harder with additional gemstone index marks on the black sunray dial that exactly match corresponding stones on the bezel. Rose gold-plated hands complement the case, while a black hybrid rubber strap completes the dynamic look.
As such, the Manero Tourbillon Double Peripheral Paradise is a contemporary milestone that is a celebration of color. Beyond its eye-catching design, this is also one of CFB’s finest timepieces and an expression of Carl F. Bucherer watchmakers’ supreme finesse. As a “Double Peripheral,” it features two of the brand’s signature peripherally mounted technologies in its 33-jewel movement: an automatic winding system and a “floating” tourbillon cage. Neither mounted in the movement’s main plate, nor attached to an overlying bridge, the shock-proof tourbillon is supported peripherally by three ceramic ball bearings and seems to float in space.
