A true symbol of Bucherer, blue has become a hallmark of the brand and now epitomises the uniqueness of the new creations that make up the Bucherer Blue Editions.

For any watch aficionado the secret is out that blue timepieces represent a unique and timeless offering, stepping away from traditional watchmaking, Bucherer Blue Editions give watch wearers a contemporary alternative.

Tudor – Heritage Black Bay Bronze Blue

Historically, the colour blue has always been prominent in the Tudor collection. It made its first appearance in 1969, when Tudor launched the Tudor Oyster Prince Submariner 7021 with a blue dial. This tone of blue served as inspiration for the brands new model, as did the design itself – the dial and domed glass are reminiscent of the first Tudor dive watch.

The most characteristic element of the Heritage Black Bay Bronze Blue is its brushed-bronzed case. This impressive case allows for a subtle, unique patina that reflects the routines of the wearer, turning the piece into a highly personal collector’s item.

Audemars Piguet – Royal Oak Offshore Chronograph

The colour blue has always been connected to the legendary Royal Oak; featuring on its iconic tapisserie dial at its birth in 1972. When the Audemars and Bucherer collaboration came to fruition, the Swiss manufacturer developed three striking timepieces which combine different styles and materials while playing with forms and colours to give the watches a chic yet sporty appearance. The end result is a powerful chronograph built for watch enthusiasts with a distinguished and unique eye.

Revisiting the design of the iconic Royal Oak in a carefully considered female-style, this watch has a powerful and sporting nature, a well built timepiece that plays with contrasts; the blue counter stands out clearly on the white dial, which is enhanced by a diamond-set bezel. The rose gold and stainless finish was also created exclusively for Bucherer.

Audemars Piguet – Royal Oak Tourbillion Ultra Thin

Enhancing the prestigious Royal Oak Offshore is no easy feat; but the Le Brassus based manufacturer have created an exemplary Tourbillion Ultra Thin tailored to Bucherer’s female customers.

Carl F. Bucherer – Manero Peripheral

Creating watches based on the the legacy left by Carl Friedrich Bucherer, the Manero Peripheral is testament to the brand’s philosophy; an independent, traditional and innovative timepiece. With a bespoke petrol blue dial and alligator blue strap the watch is offset by a contrasting stainless steel dial, homage to the city of Lucerne, Switzerland whose coat of arms bares the colour blue.

IWC – Portugieser

The story behind the Portuguese family stretches all the way back to the precision nautical instruments used by seafarers to discover the world. The bold dial is inspired by the sea and is off-set by a warm red-gold case. With a shimmering sun-pattern finish on the dial, the red-gold hands provide a discreet contrast to the white counters.

Jaeger-Le Coultre – Master Ultra Thin Date

A relationship that goes from strength-to-strength, the collaboration between Jaeger and Bucherer gave the watchmakers the chance to reduce functions and produce a watch showcasing the absolute essentials in a timepiece. Designed for the person who values understated simplicity and elegance, the Master Ultra Thin Date epitomises the Jaeger ethos.

This stunning piece is available in a steel and gold version.

Longines – The Longines Master Collection

This special edition Longines watch uses a deep, dark tone of blue that represents elegance and timelessness – two key elements of the philosophies of both brands. Available in a ladies’ and men’s version with diameters of 36 and 40mm, each watch is equipped with striking automatic movements.

Officine Panerai – Radiomir 1940

With over 20 years of partnership, the collaboration between Panerai and Bucherer pays tribute to the brand’s heritage and connection to the sea. In order to pay a fitting homage to their relationship, the Maison created a completely new combination with an exclusive vertically brushed blue dial fitted in an iconic Radiomir 1940 case. Connoisseurs will appreciate the presence of the P.4000 caliber, the first Panerai automatic movement with an off-centre microrator.

The Panerai Radiomir 1940 is available in both a steel and gold version.

Piaget – Altiplano

To celebrate the Bucherer Blue Editions partnership, Piaget chose to transform the face of its iconic Altiplano model, which has broken records with its ultra-thin case.

Subtle, nuanced and deep, the Piaget blue is a symbol of freedom. On this unique model, the dial is inspired by a fine midnight-blue suit, which an elegantly dressed gentleman would combine with an equally sophisticated rose-gold watch”. – Quentin Herbert, International Marketing Director at Piaget Watchmaking.
