he Manero Peripheral BigDate’s eye-catching dial is distinguished by its contrasting small-seconds subdial at 6 o’clock. The effect is complemented by a power reserve indicator at three o’clock, a day-of-the-week aperture at 9 o’clock, and, finally, the feature that gives the watch its name: the big date window at 10 o’clock.
The timepiece is based on the characteristics that define Carl F. Bucherer today: a long history, a proud heritage, a founding family, a cutting-edge manufacture, the skills of some of the world’s most talented watchmakers, and, of course, the innovation that has established the brand as the industry’s leader in peripheral technology.
- The Carl F. Bucherer Manero Peripheral BigDate has a power reserve of 55 hours and is water-resistant to 3 bar (30 m).
While Carl F. Bucherer has taken inspiration from its own archival timepieces, including the popular and colourful Manero PowerReserve Mr. Blue and Mr. Green watches, the Manero Peripheral BigDate is a resolutely contemporary watch with its 41.6 mm stainless steel case. Both sides of its domed sapphire crystal have an anti-reflective coating, which enhances the watch’s readability. The sapphire crystal case back offers a clear view of the CFB A2011 calibre, the in-house mechanical movement that powers the new timepiece.

The Manero Peripheral BigDate has been interpreted in two distinct versions. One has a light blue dial with a contrasting small-seconds subdial and power reserve indication in beige, along with a big date and day-of-the-week aperture in the same colour. The other has been crafted with a dark grey dial with a contrasting olive-green small-seconds subdial and power reserve indication, with a big date and day-of-the-week aperture in the same colour. Each dial option is presented on either a textile strap matching the subdial or on a robust stainless steel bracelet.
