Blue elegance

Founded in 1888, Bucherer is celebrating its 130th anniversary. To mark this milestone and its special bond with certain luxury watch brands, the Maison launched its “Bucherer Blue Editions” collection. The concept consists in a series of watches crafted in cooperation with various brands based on the guiding theme of blue, symbolizing elegance and timelessness. For this anniversary watch dedicated to women, Bucherer blue takes the place of Longines blue. Unlike the other models in the collection, this new interpretation of The Longines Master Collection model does not feature a blue dial, but instead a silver-toned face bearing a splendid guilloché motif reminiscent of a flower. The blue theme is thus picked up on the deep blue alligator leather strap enhanced by light topstitching, as well as on the hours and minutes hands sweeping over this floral decor alongside the seconds hand bearing the symbol of infinity. Lending a precious touch, the odd-number Arabic numerals of this timepiece have been replaced by diamonds, the only exception to the rule being the 3 o’clock spot already occupied by a date window. True to its origins, this watch with its 36mm stainless steel case beats to the rhythm of a mechanical movement, like all the other models in The Longines Master Collection.
