"Bucherer Blue Editions" is a tribute to the tradition and expertise of the family business, which since 1888 stands for outstanding watchmaking in Switzerland and Europe. At the same time Bucherer celebrates the relationship with its partners. It was no coincidence that the choice fell on blue: it represents dream and wisdom, but it was also the color of the nobility. Here, after the founding year, the manufacturers follow with their creative contributions to the "Bucherer Blue Editions", which can now be discovered in the Swiss and international Bucherer branches.



H. Moser & Cie. (1828)

H. Moser & Cie. Today, despite the expropriation during the October Revolution of 1918, holds a top spot among independent watch manufacturers. For "Bucherer Blue Editions", the "Venturer Small Seconds" was equipped with a midnight blue fumé dial, the color that also symbolizes fidelity.



Longines (1832)

With its long, unbroken tradition, Longines stands for natural elegance, even with the very sporty models. The color of the house with the hanged hourglass is also blue, so two versions of the "Longines Master Collection" (Ø 36 mm and Ø 40 mm) were designed for the "Bucherer Blue Editions".



JaegerLeCoultre (1833)

The large house from the Vallée de Joux, known for its watch creations and innovations, masters all facets of watchmaking. The "Master Ultra in" embodies simple, unfussy elegance and has been translated into two versions for the "Bucherer Blue Editions".



Panerai (1860)

Even those who do not control a rolled R, may enjoy Italian design with Swiss (watches) heart. Blue stands for Panerai for the sea and thus the origins of the brand. For "Beech rer Blue Editions" Panerai supplied two "Radiomir" models with an exclusive, vertically brushed dial.



Chopard (1860)

The house shines with both watch creations and its HauteJoaillerie pieces. Perfection arises when the savoirfaire of both comes together. With sapphires as the moving components of the iconic "Happy Sport", Chopard is honoring the "Bucherer Blue Editions".



IWC Schaffhausen (1868)

IWC combines passion for watchmaking with exclusive design for its precision chronographs. For "Bucherer Blue Editions", the "Portugieser" is available for the first time with slate-blue sunburst dial and rose gold case. A successful contrast!



Piaget (1874)

The dial of the «Altiplano Bucherer Blue Editions» received blue as the «symbol of freedom».


Audemars Piguet (1875)

Technical innovation and successful design: The manufacturer from Le Brassus conquers Horlogerie connoisseurs and new fans. 5. The three models of the «Royal Oak Bucherer Blue Editions»
cleverly combine styles and materials: a
ultra-flat tourbillon in sporty steel rose gold
Case, with or without diamonds.


Carl F. Bucherer (1888)

Last but not least the host of this great project. The fame of the manufactory grew through the collections that combine design, functionality and watchmaking. In the "Manero Peripheral Bucherer Blue Editions", the dial and strap are held in tone. The contrast of blue and steel on the case pays homage to the blue and white coat of arms of Lucerne, the headquarters of Carl F. Bucherer.
