It’s modern design and innovative appearance leaves no desire unfulfilled. Bracelets and cases are available in either white or yellow gold. Just as elegant are the combinations with the soft and smooth fabric watchstraps or the fine alligator leather watchbands. The demanding designers have created three exclusive mother-of-pearl versions of the watch face: white, pink or anthracite. Choosing either a complimentary color scheme or a harmonious contrast, your heart will grow fonder with each version of the Pathos round presented. The passion for detail can also be seen in the Arabian numbers, especially created for Carl F. Bucherer. Depending on which timepiece chosen, the remaining eight numbers are replaced with sparkling diamonds. A high-quality, extra flat ETA quartz movement ensures a reliable time display. Waterproof to 30 meters, a screw-down back and a domed sapphire crystal are all further qualities meeting the highest of demands. These features are as much a part of the Pathos as is its compelling charm.

Carl F. Buchererwatch collection is a stellar example of a contemporary interpretation of classic traditional design. Currently distributed in Asia, Europe, Russia and the Middle East, North America will now join these markets to compliment this truly global brand. The marketing, philosophy, vision and tradition of this independent luxury brand from Switzerland, the last one, will continue to reflect the original thinking of its founder, Carl F. Bucherer – “a watch for those who go their own way”. The official launch took place in Switzerland at this year’s Baselworld  2004. Carl Friedrich Bucherer was a pioneer, an exceptional man and a passionate entrepreneur. In 1888, a time of worldwide upheaval, he opened his first watch and jewelry shop in Lucerne. In 1919, he took the plunge and created his first watch collection. This was an instant success and laid the foundations for a brand that is renowned to this day for its inimitable style and individuality, and one that has to this day remained a healthy and independent family business. Around the turn of the last century, the Belle Époque arrived in Switzerland and Lucerne. The city boomed and prosperity increased. People were filled with a new zest for life; were optimistic and had faith in the future. And among them was Carl F. Bucherer, welcoming people from all over the world into his shop. Their diversity and the openness of the city strongly influenced his life and his work and the name of Carl F. Bucherer has since become synonymous with the city of Lucerne. The only producer of watches in the heart of Switzerland has developed into something truly special. Since then, all Carl F. Bucherer watches have had something in common - the passion, enthusiasm and meticulous attention to detail which go into every single watch made. The never-ending pursuit of perfection has never been abandoned. Today, the company is owned by Jörg G. Bucherer, the grandson of Carl Friedrich, and like his forebears, he attaches great importance to independence, continuity, energy and freedom. And in doing so, he creates distinctive watches which reflect and convey these values. In the true tradition of our founder, we make no compromise when it comes to the highest quality and the love of detail. To ensure that the only watch from the heart of Switzerland will remain unique in the future, too. For more information please visit
