Luxury Swiss watchmaker, Carl F. Bucherer Lucerne 1888, presents the CFB 2000, a new manufacture movement developed in-house, further highlighting its technical expertise in the field of luxury watchmaking.


The new automatic calibre enables new combinations of features, and can be used on different models. It forms the base to a completely new movement series, setting a driving force towards the future of the brand.


The new movement made its debut in the new Manero Peripheral, which runs on CFB A2050, providing the date, hours, minutes and small seconds.

What’s inside?


In terms of its design, the energy is provided to the movement through a double-sided self-winding mechanism with a peripherally arranged rotor. Carl F. Bucherer was the first to put this design movement into series production, with the calibre CFB A1000.


Its linear design reflects the DNA of the brand from aesthetic and technical viewpoints, while the Geneva Stripes pay tribute to traditional Swiss watchmaking in the way they adorn the movement’s bridges.




In this movement, Carl F. Bucherer focused on a free-breathing balance-spiral that undergoes no changes in its effective length, as the motion of the watch is through calibrated pivotable masselottes, small weights that sit on the four balance arms and control the inertia of the balance, guaranteeing the movement rate stability.




The basic structure of the CFB 2000 was designed in a way that allows it to be incorporated in future models. Hence, it is a universally applicable movement, according to the brand.


Its rotation momentum allows it to be a driving force to a range of additional functions that are still under development.


Watch the making of the calibre.
