As part of the Bucherer BLUE collection, two limited edition watches from the Swiss brands H. Moser & Cie and Girard Perregaux have been released.
Founded in 1888, Bucherer is one of the oldest watch and jewelry retailers in the world. The network also creates a special collection in collaboration with the best watch manufacturers. The concept called Bucherer BLUE was first introduced in 2016. It is about bringing together different brands on one creative platform in order to create innovative models. Recently, the Girard Perregaux Tourbillon with Three Flying Bridges Bucherer BLUE and H. Moser & Cie Streamliner Tourbillon Bucherer BLUE have joined the Bucherer BLUE collection.
For this limited edition, Bucherer teamed up with Girard-Perregaux to choose one of the most famous tourbion watches, the Tourbillon with Three Bridges. This is one of the most modern and dynamic interpretations of this symbolic clock. Housed in a 44mm titanium case, it is framed by box-shaped sapphire crystal, providing a captivating view of the superb movement and mechanical microcosm inside. With a modern architecture, the skeletonized movement appears to float inside the case, with Neo bridges crafted from titanium and finished in ALD’s signature blue Atomic Layer Deposition finish.
The movement of this Bucherer BLUE three-flying bridge tourbillon by Girard-Perregaux is not only visually striking, but also thoughtfully constructed. Not only is the finish top-notch, there is also a practical aspect as it is a self-winding caliber. It has a built-in micro-rotor under the drum, which preserves the architecture of the movement. And, of course, a beautiful cage in the shape of a lyre for the tourbillon regulator at 6 o’clock.
The second watch in the new Bucherer BLUE series is based on the recently introduced H. Moser & Cie. Streamliner Tourbillon. Although the brand released it with a gold case and Vantablack dial, the retailer decided to go a different route for this edition. First of all, the case with a diameter of 40 mm is made in stainless steel, like the classic “lobster tail” bracelet. The dial of this edition of Bucherer BLUE is not black, but the typical Moser gradient grey, with applied markers and the brand’s logo in transparent lacquer.
Inside the case is an automatic in-house tourbillon caliber HMC 804 with a double spring and a 3-day power reserve. The highlight here is the bezel with 60 baguette-cut blue sapphires.
