Carl F. Bucherer Manero AutoDate LOVE
Li Bingbing is a Chinese actress who works both in Asia and Hollywood. She has been Carl F. Bucherer’s ambassador since 2016 and this year marks her first time collaborating on a watch.
The Carl F. Bucherer Manero AutoDate LOVE has been designed by the movie star and the watch brand to support another element of her work – her charity L.O.V.E Responsible Life. Li supports numerous charitable causes that are grouped under an umbrella organization called L.O.V.E Responsible Life. L.O.V.E stands for Life, Original, Value, and Earth and helps charities that fight poverty, protect endangered species and advocate for the environment.
This new Carl F. Bucherer Manero AutoDate LOVE takes its name from the foundation and features its leaf emblem on the dial. The leaf symbolises environmental protection and makes a plea for more humane values. The motif has been subtly added to the small seconds subdial and replaces the index at eight o’clock. “The delicate pattern is a reminder that we must treat the Earth and its creatures with respect and revere them,” shares Li, “We should protect and transmit the beauty of nature.”
There are nine different versions in a choice of 18-karat rose gold, stainless steel, or a combination of both. The dials are available in a vibrant red, petrol blue or white mother-of-pearl and come with a matching coloured alligator strap or sporty stainless steel bracelet. The timepieces are all powered by the brand’s CFB 1971 automatic movement.
Carl F. Bucherer is dedicated to upholding its four core values that serve as the foundation for everything it does: Sustainability, excellence, tradition, and innovation. The Manero AutoDate LOVE is no exception. Sustainability is achieved via the partnership with L.O.V.E. Responsible Life, excellence is reflected in the dial design, and the use of traditional craftsmanship and innovative production techniques shine through in the creation of the watches.
