The Manero is synonymous with timeless elegance in the collection by Carl F. Bucherer, and the chronographs in this family stand for sportiness in a classic design. This is also true for the new Manero Flyback, which is available in either a rose gold or stainless steel case – and is a perfect addition to the Manero family with its central stop second counter.

Chronograph with additional functionality

The chronograph newcomer for 2016 features the caliber CFB 1970, which is controlled by a gearwheel and also provides a Flyback function, allowing multiple time intervals to be measured in quick succession. The term Flyback refers to the movement performed by the stop hands when the reset button is pushed while the stopwatch is running. The chronograph hands fly back to zero, while the movement continues to run in the background – allowing the hands to resume as soon as the reset button is released. With conventional timepieces, it is necessary to press the button three times in order to measure successive time intervals: stop the chronograph, reset and re-measure.

Sportiness meets elegance

The sophisticated automatic chronograph movement is housed inside a classic round case, 43 mm in diameter, and is available in rose gold or stainless steel, perfectly complementing the elegant Manero series. The polished push buttons controlling the chronograph function not only emphasize the classic character of the watch, they are also highly functional with their large surface area.

An exquisite face

The high-quality silver dial is set with ten raised indexes, which are finished in gold tones or in stainless steel, depending on the choice of case material. This is also the case for the lance-style hands that are typical of the Manero range, as well as the baton hands of the chronograph. The two sub-dials for the small seconds at 9 o’clock and the stop minute at 3 o’clock are recessed and combine with the surrounding raised border adorned with a tachymeter scale to underline the three-dimensional quality of the dial design. The Manero Flyback thus presents a truly exquisite face.
