  • Catalogue Essay

    A large 37mm case, olive pushers, a black glossy dial with gilt printing, what is there not to love in this chronograph made by Bucherer?

    Created in 1888 in the picturesque Swiss city of Lucerne, Bucherer started as a retailer of fine watches and jewelry and rapidly expanded within and outside of Switzerland. In the 20th century the retailer also sold watches under its own brand, simply signed Bucherer Lucerne.

    The present chronograph from the 1950s stands out thanks to its overall excellent condition and dashing good looks making it a perfect watch for the new vintage collector wishing to add a timepiece of utmost value to his or her collection.
