Were it possible to encapsulate the spirit of Carl F. Bucherer in one word, that word would have to be: Lucerne. Since its creation in 1888, the brand has been profoundly rooted in the cosmopolitan spirit of its hometown. This is where each of its elegant, technically innovative timepieces originates. Its history is tied in with that of watchmaking, all the while remaining in the hands of its founding family, the Bucherer group.
Carl Friedrich Bucherer and his wife opened a watch and jewellery shop in Lucerne that would grow into a globally renowned company.
Encouraged by sons Carl Eduard and Ernst, Carl Friedrich Bucherer launched his first collection of women's watches in the Art Deco style.
