There are sometimes in life when every second counts and impeccable timing is required. The recent 2018 Winter Olympic in Pyeongchang, South Korea provides the perfect example of when seconds can earn cost medals, or conversely lose them. Japan’s Nana Tagaki won Gold in the women’s speed skating final by a mere 0.13 of a second, dramatically pushing Kim Bo-Reum from the Republic of Korea into silver medal position.
Thankfully most things in life are not as dependent upon such nail-biting accuracy as Olympic sports, but timing is a necessary and vital part of the everyday. Bucherer are experts in the field of timekeeping, and are purveyors of quality timepieces who have combined their long-standing reputation of valuing craftsmanship with their status of being fine jewellers.
Since 1888, Bucherer has been Europe’s most prominent and respected luxury watch retailer. Having started in Lucerne in the foothills of the Alps, the brand has now cemented its global reputation with their recent acquisitions of The Watch Gallery in the United Kingdom and Tourneau, the largest American luxury watch retailer.
The procurement of such well-established international retailers has given rise to Bucherer being able to provide their customers with the opportunity to experience the passion and quality that have made them a success. They have a trusted relationship with Rolex which goes back to the brand’s beginnings when Rolex’s founder Hans Wilsdorf was supported by Ernst Bucherer in his fledgling company. This has progressed to Bucherer being one of the most respected and recognised Rolex horology experts.
TAG Heuer is another European export that has taken the world by storm since its development of the oscillating pinion mechanism in 1887. This invention revolutionised timekeeping and took accuracy and efficiency to new levels. Today, the technology is little changed, and still used by leading manufactures for precision timekeeping. Bucherer are proud supporters of the TAG Heuer luxury brand that has continued to innovate and inspire throughout its history.
Bucherer are keen supporters of the comparatively new brand of Hublot. Founded in 1980, Hublot is globally famed for it’s prestigious, clean and sharp designs which push the boundaries of traditional watchmaking expertise. These trendsetting watches unify classic watchmaking techniques with the Art of Fusion, creating timepieces of unquestionable quality and design credentials.
Whether you are an athlete or an entrepreneur, every second counts, but there is no need to forego style for accuracy, the two are not mutually exclusive. Bucherer provides timepieces from luxury brands that meet their high standards of craftsmanship and creativity.
