Classic design meets technical know-how. With an integrated power reserve indication and the high-precision CFB A1011 Manufacture caliber, the Manero PowerReserve from the Lucerne-based watch brand Carl F. Bucherer combines high functionality and sophisticated technology –indicating at all times power is remaining
The power reserve indication is a classic design element with a tradition of its own. Originally used in marine chronometers, it soon became an established feature of wristwatches too. The power reserve indication displays the current state of tension in the mainspring and the residual power in terms of hours. In the Manero PowerReserve, the functionality and design of the power reserve indication are perfectly combined, creating a striking and unique watch face.
Functionality at a glance
On a semicircular indication at 3 o’clock, a hand shows the power remaining. As the power is used up, the hand slips into a red shaded area. The day of the week (at 9 o’clock) and the special big date (at 11 o’clock) can also be read at a glance, as can the integrated small seconds at 6 o’clock. The black dial is divided into an outer ring and an inner ring, which are differentiated by color. While all functions are to be found on the lighter-colored inner circle, the outer darker circle is segmented by rose gold markers. This optical variation provides a pleasing transition to the 18 Kt rose gold case, which is 42.5 mm in diameter and 12.54 mm in depth. The timepiece is beautifully complemented by the black alligator-skin strap.
Classically inspired movement
At the center of the Manero PowerReserve is the Manufacturer’s own CFB A1011 automatic caliber, which in this model is integrated in a Manero for the first time.
As a further development of the CFB A1002 Manufacture caliber, the CFB A1011 shows the power reserve by means of a hand, recalling classic elements of watch design. A particular feature of the movement is the peripherally mounted and bidirectional oscillating weight, which supplies power to the automatic gear train. The patented dynamic shock absorption system known as “Dynamic Shock Absorption” (DSA) offers the ultimate in efficiency and reliability.
In its design and its technology, the Manero PowerReserve skillfully combines classical and modern components – making it always up to the minute.
