Insider: Carl F. Bucherer Manero Power Reserve Blue and Manero Power Reserve Green. Hands-on with Two Very Eclectic Looking Watches.

Available now in stainless steel with two very eclectic looking dials, the new Carl F. Bucherer Manero Power Reserve with blue or green dial is very reminiscent of the Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic Square with its crazy electric five colors. The new Manero Power Reserve is available in two new dials, one blue and the other green. and equipped with a power reserve indicator, day of the week, date and seconds subdial. Giving special special attention to each of these two new watches, each iteration is very unique looking and with its very own character. Featuring a mirror polished round case measuring 42.5 mm in diameter and a double domed sapphire crystal, the new Carl F. Bucherer is quite vintage looking and eye catching.

The Things You Need to Know

The dial with a slight 'fumé' effect, features double digit date aperture at 11 o'clock, day of the week indicator at 9, power reserve indicator at 3 and running seconds subdial at 6 o'clock. Fitted with applied markers and dauphine hands, the watch has a very sixties look and feel.

The new Carl F. Bucherer Manero Power Reserve are fitted with a supple calfskin strap in the same color as its dials with matching contrast stitching in green or blue. The strap is equipped with a pin buckle in stainless steel.

The new Carl F. Bucherer Manero Power Reserve Blue ref. 00.10912.08.53.01 and the Green ref. 00.10912.08.93.01are powered by the automatic movement CFB 1011 with a power reserve of 55 hours. The movement features 33 jewels, is nicely finished and visible via the display case back. While this movement is nothing really fancy, the finishing is up to par with the price point of this watch.

On the Wrist & Pricing

On the wrist, the new Carl F. Bucherer Manero Power Reserve ref. 00.10912.08.53.01 and ref. 00.10912.08.93.01 wear true to their actual size and with very retro wrist presence. If you like crazy looking watches that evoke the era of The Doors, The Who or The Rolling Stones, the new blue and green Manero Power Reserve watches will deliver just like the Glashütte Original Sixties Iconic Square does. For the price, you are getting a great looking timepiece without breaking the bank. Now, if you have to pick one, we'd have to say that the green one is our preferred one as the hue of blue on the blue one is not our cup of tea.
