A new chapter of the history of the clock industry opens with year 2008 within Carl F. Bucherer. Movements will leave this from now on manufacture soon. Indeed, on July 1, 2007, Carl F. Bucherer acquired of a workshop specialist in the clock making complications located in the Jura of Vaud. This step, a true obviousness, is the fruit of ten years an already long profitable co-operation with Clock making Techniques Applied SA (THA), with Holy Cross. Currently, integration supplements in Carl F. Bucherer Watches SA advances quickly. With this stage, Thomas Morf, CEO of Carl F. Bucherer wants to follow a double strategy in the future: “On the one hand, to maintain the use of tested basic gauges, as all the modules which were manufactured exclusively for Carl F. Bucherer.

     THA whose name will change into Carl F. Bucherer Technologies SA revêt very with continuation several caps: laboratories for ideas centre for research, of development and of production. Seventeen collaborators currently excel within the company. This manpower however will increase gradually with the course the next years.
Since 2005, the team of Carl F. Bucherer works on a gauge of manufacture out of the common runs with automatic reassembly. It names CFB A1000 and was presented at the time of the living room Baselworld 2008.

     Many clock making marks are claimed manufactures. But little of them can really claim to be truly one for it. The not written laws of Swiss clock making industry grant this prestigious title only to the manufacturers who produce at least a gauge in their own walls. C’est le cas de Carl F. Bucherer since 2008. The origins of what certainly will make a bit feeling under the name of CFB A1000 go back to the year 2005. This year the fundamental decision was made to bring to the varied collection of the watches of Carl F. Bucherer a new facet, of a technical and artisan level very high. The implementation consequent of the philosophy of company, clear and concerned of quality, imperiously required the creation of movements suitable for Carl F. Bucherer.
     The highly expressive case in form of cushion of Patravi EvoTec DayDate, which profits from generous proportions of 44 X 44,5 mm, incarnates the art of the mechanical clock industry perfectly.
Its first version is a watch not very common and remarkable equipped with a small needle of the seconds to 6 a.m. pointing out the shape of the case subtly, a posting of the day of the week at 9 a.m. and an exuberant counter for the calendar in the left higher quarter of the dial.

     The geometrical indices point out the slightly convex sides of the case and underline the concept of the deliberately purified and modern design of Patravi EvoTec DayDate. A module developed in workshops CFBT makes possible these two additional functions calendar.
Gauge CFB A1000 animates the interior decoration of Patravi EvoTec DayDate.

     Automatic movement, reserve of walk 55 hours Functions: great date, posting of the day of the week, small second.Case: steel, glasses rubber, crown screwed, glass anti-reflecting sapphire on the two faces, melt of the case with glass sapphire, tight up to 50 Mr.
