WELCOME

“At Carl F. Bucherer, we are passionate about manufacturing timepieces that represent the future of horology, while also paying homage to our rich history” SASCHA MOERI CEO, CARL F. BUCHERER

W

hen a reporter asked mountaineer George Mallory in 1923 why he wanted to climb Mount Everest, he replied: “Because it’s there.” Those three immortal words sum up the ethos of why humans take on seemingly insurmountable challenges. In this issue, we meet Armin Schelbert, a 74-year-old Swiss man who climbs the Schwyz Alps’ Grosser Mythen mountain several times a day. For Armin, the mountain is as much a feat to conquer as it is a route to connect with his fellow climbers and himself. Each of us has a value that fuels our passions. At Carl F. Bucherer, we are passionate about manufacturing timepieces that represent the future of horology, while also paying homage to our rich history. This is witnessed by our recent partnership with the Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH), the ultimate international authority on fine watchmaking. As FHH acknowledges, our devotion to innovation has been ongoing since 1888 here in our home in Lucerne. Another ideal we are devoted to is the protection of the natural world. We champion this through our continuing support of the Manta Trust foundation, which tirelessly works to conserve the enigmatic sea creatures. Because a thriving natural world benefits us all. That is why this issue is dedicated to Treasured Values. From an alpine skier committed to mastering her sport and a photographer who has made it his life’s mission to document the plight of indigenous communities to sustainability minded architects who are using wood to design state-of-the-art structures,

the people on the following pages live and breathe their personal values on a daily basis. Heritage is another hallmark of Carl F. Bucherer, one that we celebrate with the Heritage Collection, which takes inspiration from vintage timepieces from our oeuvre and updates them with contemporary style and sophisticated technology. With this collection, we continue to honour our legacy while firmly planting our flag on the summit that is the future of watchmaking. Enjoy the 1888 magazine by Carl F. Bucherer.

PEOPLE OF THE WORLD

JIMMY NELSON

In his latest book, photographer Jimmy Nelson pays homage to indigenous people At the age of 16, Jimmy Nelson developed alopecia. A year later, he travelled to Tibet to spend time with Buddhist monks whose shaved heads he thought would make him feel aesthetically accepted. Luckily, he brought along a camera. “That became my fascination: using the camera as a tool to connect with others but ultimately to reconnect with myself,” Nelson says. Three decades on, the 52-year-old DutchBritish photographer continues to connect to humanity by documenting indigenous people “who throughout history were disrespected,” Nelson says. His photographs allow entry to cultures not readily accessible. In this photo from Nelson’s latest tome, Homage to Humanity, Marquesan horsemen in French Polynesia pose in traditional dress on the Vaioa river’s rocky shore. He argues one of the biggest threats these communities face is technology, which urges many to abandon their homes in favour of the modern world. Nelson, who will exhibit Homage at Fotografiska New York this spring, invests a percentage of proceeds from his projects in the communities. “I want them to feel empowered in their own identity and their own culture,” he says. jimmynelson.com

World champion and Olympic medalist Wendy Holdener prepares for her next alpine ski championship Wendy Holdener was just three years old when she strapped on her first pair of skis. Since then, the now-26-year-old, Swiss-born alpine ski racer and Carl F. Bucherer brand ambassador has claimed multiple world championships and a full set of Olympic medals – she won gold in mixed team, silver in slalom and bronze in women’s combined at the 2018 Winter Games in PyeongChang. Skiing is a sport that many enjoy but few master. Natural talent and athleticism aside, Holdener says she focuses particularly on the technical side. “In addition to the perfect swing, the set-up must be perfectly tailored to the individual, and this makes the sport very complex,” she says. “At a certain level, it’s all about the details, and precision matters enormously.” Fuelled by the unique adrenaline rush only the slopes provide, Holdener says her main goal is to push her potential. “I am convinced that if I can call up my maximum, then the victories will be mine.” Currently, she is training to qualify for the 2022 Winter Olympics in Beijing. When she’s not in the snow, her relationships are what she treasures most. “Health, family and friends are most important to me,” she says. “Especially when you are not at your best, these are the people who stand by your side.” wendyholdener.ch

OPINION

“At the Manta Trust, our vision is an ocean where manta rays and their relatives live within a thriving, healthy system” GUY STEVENS

I

grew up in the countryside in the south-west of the United Kingdom. We had lots of pets and animals around. So many of us are increasingly disconnected from nature and if you lose that connection, you lose empathy towards the natural world. One of the most important things I’m trying to do is use manta rays as a way to engage people in the oceans: why they’re important, why we should protect them and, more broadly, what are the consequences if we forget how valuable it is to look after this planet and all of the animals that live within it. You can use the argument that animals are important economically and ecologically, but at the end of the day what makes people protect something is when they care about it. So my values are engendering empathy and care for the natural world. At the Manta Trust, our vision is an ocean where manta rays and their relatives live within a thriving, healthy coral reef and ocean system. We want to ensure that future generations are able to experience the amazing feeling you get when you are able to share this planet with these animals. It saddens me to think that we are losing species and it is because of humans. The only way to protect these animals is to protect the environment they live in. There are very few wild animals you can safely come face to face with – I’m talking about within inches – that you don’t feel threatened by. You might be checked out by a predatory shark or an orca and you’re going to have that sense of: “This is thrilling but I’m also scared.” There’s none of that with manta rays. You can go snorkelling in locations like the Maldives and Indonesia, and be surrounded by

MANTA TRUST FOUNDER DR GUY STEVENS EXPLAINS WHY HE VALUES A CONNECTION TO THE NATURAL WORLD

feeding groups of a hundred mantas. Each animal has a three- to four-metre wingspan and sometimes they touch you with their wingtips as they feed. They’re inquisitive to the degree that they will glide past and literally stare into your eye. They exude calmness, gentleness, curiosity and this sort of otherworldly appearance that is so captivating. Few other animals are able to beguile people in the same way. Mantas are able to pull people through the looking glass and enable them to feel connected to the oceans. I’ve been diving with the Patravi ScubaTec for four years. It’s a treasured possession. I used to have another dive watch with a spinning bezel and it would calcify and stop working. When you’re diving you need to know how long you’ve been underwater. I look at my watch every minute or so and it’s reassuring to know it’s reliable. The ScubaTec hasn’t let me down. I’m still here. The most important lesson I’ve learned from the work I do is that you can’t do anything on your own. The goal can be much more easily achieved if you do it together, which is why I’m grateful to Carl F. Bucherer for reaching out to work with us. There is this strange public perception that when you give money to charities it should only go to tangible products. But my staff work hard and deserve to earn money for the work they do. So it’s wonderful to know I can say to Flossy Barraud, who is our Maldives Marine Education Programme leader: “I’ve got your salary for the next year and you can keep educating the students.” That’s very hard to find funding for and having Carl F. Bucherer support her work by giving us financial help has been very refreshing.

WATCH ENTHUSIAST Todd Harrell leads an adrenaline-fuelled life. The former US Army officer skydives, scuba dives, goes whitewater kayaking and is an avid motorcyclist. But the thing that he enjoys most is strapping on a watch. Here he shares his passion for Carl F. Bucherer timepieces and why the Patravi ScubaTec holds a special place in his heart I’ve seen Carl F. Bucherer in the films John Wick, Atomic Blonde and The Meg – it makes me smile. If I see Keanu Reeves or Sylvester Stallone wearing a Carl F. Bucherer, I think: “Why wouldn’t they?” I was raised in the Special Operations community where trust in your equipment is everything and Carl F. Bucherer pieces are what I choose to wear most often. My holy grail watch has always been the Patravi TravelTec FourX in rose gold. For my next purchase, I’ll stick to more modest goals, perhaps the stainless steel Manero Flyback. Though I have the original Patravi ScubaTec Manta Trust, I’m having a tough time resisting the Black Manta, a new special edition dedicated to black manta rays. Sure, I respect the brand’s partnership with the Manta Trust. But based solely on its design merit, the Black Manta is such a powerful, sexy watch that I may just have to stop resisting.

TODD HARRELL

P

art of the allure of dive watches is that they possess an air of practicality and durability. Even for diving, where computers have all but replaced traditional watches, I refuse to rely solely on anything with a battery. I’ve had a dive computer fail but never a Patravi ScubaTec. There’s a lot to love about the ScubaTec. I like the tapered edges of the hour markers and the contrast between the lugs’ polished edges, and the brushed surface is stunning. Most importantly, the ScubaTec is not just another “desk diver”. It is the ultimate tool watch that is COSC-certified, rated to 500m (50 atm) and has a helium escape valve. The ScubaTec can handle anything I throw at it. As a retired soldier, budget is always a reality. Fortunately, the ScubaTec offers great value in luxury dive watches. I own three Patravi ScubaTecs and each has its own unique “personality”. Having the variations gives me freedom to choose a watch that fits my mood, outfit or activity. Choosing a favourite watch is like choosing your favourite child, but the fact is that when I put on a watch every morning, I find myself wearing the ScubaTec more than any other model in my collection. Carl F. Bucherer is not a one-trick pony. Within a single watch manufacturer, I am able to enjoy multiple styles and models without having to jump to different labels. That’s why I have more Carl F. Bucherer watches than any other mechanical pieces in my collection.

Cut from the same cloth What makes a man a sartorial standout? At Pitti Uomo, the acclaimed men’s fashion fair in Florence, four arbiters of style share their fashion philosophies – and sustainability is the common thread

BLAKE SCOTT

IGEE OKAFOR

Menswear Influencer

Creative Consultant

What’s the one fashion item every man should own? This is a super-easy one: the one fashion item a man should own is a timepiece. Not only that, he should aspire to own a watch with heritage and value, one that can be passed on from generation to generation. How can consumers make sustainable fashion choices? I’m a big believer in quality over quantity. Making conscious sustainable choices starts with not overbuying or investing in items that have no value. Fast fashion can be easy and inexpensive but you will find yourself buying the same pieces over and over. An item that holds value will be built to last and will become a part of your style for years, if you take care of it. When buying clothing, you can invest in items that are timeless and won’t go out of style. What does the power of style mean to you? Style allows us to truly express ourselves as individuals. Even if someone is shy, their personal style can be the outlet for their personality to be seen.

What’s the one fashion item every man should own? It should be a timeless and classic accessory that is sustainably well made in order to pass down and reference for years to come. A wristwatch is a wonderful item to consider for its function and its craftsmanship.  How can consumers make sustainable fashion choices?  It all starts with educating yourself about the industry. Do research to see how the brands you’re wearing make their products. Everything from fair wages to how those goods are looked after during manufacturing is important. As consumers, it’s ethical to care about why you’re choosing a product. It makes the buying process more special and valued. Finding ways to consume in an upright way can be as simple as making sure what you’re buying will last you a long time. In every context, looking to the best way to do the right thing is key.  What does the power of style mean to you? Style lets people feel they can reach their full potential.

RICHARD BIEDUL Model Your biggest style tip? Dress by body type and not by trend. Taking the time to understand your body’s size and dimensions will enable you to choose clothing that emphasises your positive aspects while diverting attention from areas that might be less than desirable. If you don’t know what body shape you are, look it up. Trust me, you’ll thank me. What’s the one fashion item every man should own? A watch, and not just any watch: It should be a watch that is a talking point, and a financial and an emotional investment. How can consumers make sustainable fashion choices? A simple formula to use when shopping to evaluate the true cost of a garment is the price-per-wear method. As an example, if you purchase a cheap item of clothing, you will be able to wear it 10 times before the product begins to fail. This failure is not due to a product design fault; in fact, the product will fail because it is meant to. It’s called planned obsolescence and it’s part of each fast-fashion brand’s business model. Conversely, if you purchased the same item from a brand that is making higher-quality goods, with a longer life cycle, it may cost you more but it will last you longer. A more expensive item of clothing will more than likely give you 100 wears, if not more, making it a potentially cheaper price per wear than that of the lower-quality item.

FRANCO MAZZETTI Menswear Consultant Your biggest style tip? The only advice I can give is to always be yourself. Try to understand which clothes make you feel comfortable. Once you’ve identified your way of dressing, try to practise good manners. They are essential to improving your style. To quote American minister Henry Ward Beecher: “Clothes and manners do not make the man; but, when he is made, they greatly improve his appearance.” What’s the one fashion item every man should own? Personally, I love to show a pocket square every time I wear a jacket, but not all men habitually wear jackets. Another

thing I love are cufflinks, but in this case the advice would be applicable to a small number of men. So I would say a wristwatch, if chosen with care, can tell who you are and can be worn with almost any type of clothing. Even in this age when you check your phone to know the time, I believe that no man should give up wearing a watch. How can consumers make sustainable fashion choices? We have an old Florentine saying, if “you buy cheap, you buy twice”. Unfortunately, today everything is bought and consumed at a fast speed. The online purchase is now universal but absolutely unsuitable for clothing and key accessories. I go back to the ancient purchase method where the customer goes to the trusted retailer or, even better, to his tailor and chooses the fabrics, the cut and the fit. Those who spend more will have invested money in carefully made clothing using high-quality, durable components, which in the long run saves money.

Man on top For the past 20 years, 74-year-old Armin Schelbert has treasured nothing more than summiting Grosser Mythen mountain several times a day. He has no plans to stop TEXT Adam Robb PHOTOGRAPHY Ben Read

A

t 3am on a dry morning in July, 74-year-old Armin Schelbert slips through an electrified cattle gate without a zap as the herds sleep around him. Schelbert is en route to summit Switzerland’s Grosser Mythen, the heart of a massif overlooking Lake Lucerne. His headlamp casts a solitary glow in the pitch-black night, illuminating a narrow rocky path that snakes up 1,899 metres punctuated by dozens of vertigo-inducing hairpin turns. The faint crunch of stones under his boots and the thud of his hiking poles driving into the ground are the only audible sounds in the eerily quiet surroundings. Schelbert gulps in the chilly mountain air as, with quick, sure-footed steps, he makes his way upward. This is his first climb of the morning. He will summit the mountain three more times that day. Schelbert has never stopped forging tracks for others to follow, not even in retirement. The Swiss native spent the prime of his working life not far from here, as a site manager, laying tracks that weave Swiss trains through Alpine terrains with unmistakable precision. Now retired, he hammers his own two feet up and down the Grosser Mythen as many as four times a day. He has done so for the past two decades and, in the process, become the living embodiment of the mountain. For the climb’s growing

Schelbert is humbled by his fame and surprised anyone would want his sunburned face to interrupt a radiant landscape photo, but such pauses to smile are what make a community. “The Mythen is my life,” Schelbert says. In the summer, Schelbert climbs the mountain five days a week. In 2018, he counted 486 summits. Last year, he decided to reach 5,000 career ascents. “However, I am a little bit behind because of bad weather,” he says. A quiet, plain-spoken man, Schelbert’s answers to his motivation for the climbs sound elusive. While it is tempting to conflate his daily feats with the stuff of legends, he waves away a mention of any mystical communion with the mountain. Asked if he thinks he has an obsession, he relents: “Yes, a little bit. If I could not go up for a whole week, I would feel sick.” Schelbert has his routine down like clockwork. He sleeps five hours, going to bed not long after his last descent at 8pm, a little bread and cheese in his taut belly. For his first climb of the morning, he wakes at 2am, and promptly pulls on his layers. A fleece marking his membership in the Society of Mythen Friends, a voluntary group of mountain caretakers that dates back to the 19th century, and his mastership of 1,000-plus climbs is worn over a long-sleeved T-shirt that indicates the same. His headlamp is the only light he uses to navigate the sweeping hike to the mountain’s base. He procures his hiking poles from a lockbox at the foot of the mountain, a second set of

feet to accompany him following a knee replacement 12 years ago. Schelbert ascends in 40 minutes, twice as fast as people half his age. Every morning hikers race to the summit against the rising sun. They navigate 46 steep and slippery hairpin turns on the journey. There’s no shortage of politeness, even camaraderie, on the climb, as they graciously make way for one another, gripping chains as those coming and going negotiate for limited footing. “The more people who come, the easier the journey,” Schelbert says, noting that the parade of boots and sticks helps define stones into steps and pound loose rock into a natural pavement. He’s also aware that more people means more risk and the need for greater precaution. The chains are a welcome embrace along the highest turns. The safety feature, like the addition of numbered switchback markers, is one of the lasting contributions of Schelbert and the Mythen Friends. The markers offer quantifiable motivation and a less intimidating vista for hikers overwhelmed by the sight of neighbouring peaks rising and pastures stretching out in all their morning glory from under a blanket of darkness. After the comfortable ignorance of finding their footing in the dark, not everyone wishes to pause and peer down the zigzagged verticality from whence they came. Schelbert doesn’t look down anymore. He makes his way thinking only about the labour that awaits him at the

summit restaurant, tasks that are handled by the Friends: dropping off newspapers; registering his ascent with a stamp in the journal he stores at the summit cabin; collecting mail he’s postmarked, like souvenir postcards sold at the walk-up window where coffee and Viennoiseries fragrance the air; and the general maintenance of kitchen and toilets. Some of the tasks give Schelbert pause. “It gets hotter every year,” he says, observing the sun’s glaze across the lake. “Last summer it was so very hot, that we had no water for coffee.” He’s referring to the water towers that collect rain for the convenience of the ever-increasing numbers to the summit – currently 30,000 a year. Over the years, Schelbert carried the pastry until the demand increased and it began arriving by helicopter. Now on occasion water follows suit. The lack of rain collection is the clearest sign life won’t always continue as it has. On a personal level, Schelbert’s descents find him conscious of his own mortality. “The threat of doing a hike several times is that you become careless as you already know the path,” he says. Three close friends have perished on the Grosser Mythen in recent years. It’s on these descents he is cognisant of his greatest duty: to walk with caution so he might keep climbing. “I will do it as long as I can,” he says. At the end of each week, with 20 more registered climbs behind him, Schelbert celebrates life with his first love, his wife, who, after he retired, encouraged him to find a hobby so he wouldn’t sit around the house all day. Now the two amicably live apart during the week. “She’s happier that I am outside, than she is bothered by my passion,” he says. His commitment to the mountain fulfils his promise to her to remain strong and reliable. And because she could never make the climb at his pace, his arrival home, seeing his face, kissed ever deeper by sun and wind, has become her own favourite vista.

N

othing defines idyllic summer days on the Lucerne Nationalquai like the treasured Seebad Luzern. Celebrating its 135th birthday this year, the famed aquatic outpost serves as a place for swimming, sunning, yoga, massage and refreshments for locals and visitors. But when the idea for the Seebad was proposed in 1884, it was a controversial concept. Those who opposed the idea argued that a public bath would clutter up the area and disrupt tourist activity, while those in favour cited the health and hygiene benefits, as well as the need for a convenient place for women, who didn’t have an outdoor swimming venue at the time, to gather and exercise. The plan passed, and Lucerne-born architect Heinrich Viktor von Segesser devised a functional structure, with its bicubic layout and timber materials, which has remained a landmark on the lakeside since it was completed in 1885. “The seaside resort has been part of the cityscape of Lucerne for decades and is an indispensable part of life,” says Bruno Milesi, co-manager of the Seebad. The building itself has gone through numerous remodels and reworks to better suit the needs of the people at that time in history, including major renovations in 1963, 1984 and most recently in 2010, when Lucerne architects Bosshard & Luchsinger oversaw a complete rebuilding of the Seebad and its supporting structure. Luckily, much of the original interior wood from 1885 was in good enough condition to rehabilitate and incorporate back into the design, and today there is a detailed monitoring and maintenance plan for keeping the building in top shape. “Maintenance work often occurs where the wood is exposed to the elements, and this also includes regular inspection of the underwater construction,” says Milesi. Through it all, the Seebad has consistently served as an example of Swiss wooden architecture and the country’s

love of wood. For more evidence of that love, look no further than the nearby Kapellbrücke, aka the Chapel Bridge, perhaps Lucerne’s most famous landmark. Originally built in 1333, it is Europe’s longest-standing wooden covered bridge, and the world’s oldest surviving truss bridge. “Wood has played a major role in Switzerland since people started building here,” says Dieter Geissbühler, professor of technique and architecture at the Lucerne School of Engineering and Architecture. “You can’t talk about Lucerne without mentioning the wooden engineering work – the bridges, covered bridges, the large roofs.”

What was originally used due to sheer availability and necessity developed into carpentry and craftsmanship, and then eventually into engineering and advanced construction. “That engineering knowledge came out of the work of carpenters, who were refining their processes all the time, and who set up a culture of craftsmanship,” says Geissbühler. “Wood is very much rooted in the culture here.” In more recent history, namely over the course of the 20th century, wood mostly fell out of favour, or at least took a back seat to materials such as steel, concrete and glass, in large or more contemporary structures. But there are those in the architectural, engineering and construction worlds who are bringing about a timber resurgence, relying on new technologies involving engineered wood – essentially, taking smaller pieces of young wood and gluing them together to form larger, sturdier building materials that go toe-to-toe with steel and concrete in terms of strength and fire resistance. Cross-laminated timber, or CLT, and glued laminated timber, often abbreviated as glulam, are two common types of engineered wood.

Many are recognising engineered wood for its versatile quality, environmental sustainability and natural beauty. One such proponent is Swiss timber construction and engineering specialists Neue Holzbau AG. “Timber is renewable, recyclable and does not affect the ecological balance,” says Reto Schneider, an architect for Neue Holzbau. The company works with architects and builders who are interested in using engineered wood that uses a proprietary system called GSA Technology, which connects pieces of engineered wood and is nearly invisible, is resistant to fire and is easy to implement into most construction processes. This system, along with custom glulam, allows the company to build structures, large spans and archways that were previously never thought possible. “Over the last 10 or 15 years, wooden architecture has definitely gained popularity,” says Schneider. “Wooden architecture is finally sexy.” Sexy, yes – and sustainable. Over a tree’s lifetime, it absorbs carbon dioxide (CO2 ) and turns it into oxygen. When a tree dies or is burnt in a fire, it releases its stored, unrefined CO2 back into the air. But a tree that is turned into timber essentially “locks” that stored carbon within itself permanently, cutting CO2 emissions. As the question of energy, climate change and natural resources has risen to the foreground over the last few decades, so too have technological advances. “Innovation is not so much driven by the material, but by the available production methods: new tools, old techniques that can be digitised, new machines, even robots,” says Geissbühler. “I would say the wood industry is where the most advances in construction technology are being made today.” This wooden revolution doesn’t come without its challenges. For one, many governing bodies around the world

INTO THE WOOD Trees are turned into state-of-the-art structures at these recent and upcoming buildings around the world

ASPEN ART MUSEUM Aspen, Colorado, United States Completed 2014 Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Shigeru Ban, the Aspen Art Museum is a work of art in itself. The exterior’s woven wood screen, made from a natural-wood composite material called Prodema, casts unique shadows throughout the day, adding intrigue to the installations.

limit the height of wood buildings to around four storeys. Generally, these codes were put into practice before today’s mass timber technology was developed or widely popularised. As technology improves, building codes are changing. But it is a slow process, and these are early days. Another challenge is the public perception that wood burns very quickly, and in the past that was true. Who doesn’t remember watching Paris’s Notre Dame Cathedral wither in flames just last year? And even parts of Lucerne’s centuries-old Chapel Bridge burned as recently as 1993, when two-thirds of the structure was lost to a fire of unknown origin, leaving only the pillars, the bridgeheads and the neighbouring Water Tower intact. (In addition to its age, the bridge was famous for artworks that were painted under the roofs, some dating back as far as the early 1600s, and, unfortunately, 86 of the 111 works were lost to the blaze.) The bridge was quickly restored and rebuilt in 1994, when updated fire technology, including an advanced alarm system, heat sensors and surveillance cameras, was installed. So while it’s true that old structures may be more likely to burn, engineered wood like CLT and glulam is actually as safe as concrete or steel. “Wood burns predictably,” says Schneider. “It burns on the same level worldwide, whether it’s in Switzerland or Spain or Argentina.” As such, it’s a matter of engineering the wood to the standards of the local building codes or client safety protocols. An engineer can use the latest fire science measurements and calculate the necessary diameter of the engineered wood, then have wood

of that diameter produced. “When we have these conversations with architects or engineers, everyone understands this concept,” says Schneider. “When it comes to private investors or the public, however, it sounds like jargon.” But efforts are being made, and minds are being changed. Meanwhile, from a design and aesthetics perspective, wood is universally regarded for its natural beauty. “We see a lot of opportunity for wood in the future because it is a natural, renewable product – it’s a living material,” says Ana Simunovic of Lucerne architecture firm Russli Architects, which recently completed twin tennis facilities at the Bürgenstock Resort in Obbürgen, Switzerland, that feature an interlocking wooden ceiling, taking on a stunning prism-like effect. “Wood gives the people who are living in or interacting with the structure a warm, cosy, feeling; it smells nice; it has a nice texture to touch it, unlike glass or plastic, which have a really sterile feel.”

DALSTON WORKS London, England Completed 2017 Built entirely from CLT, Waugh Thistleton Architects’ housing development weighs in at one-fifth of a concrete building of this size, reducing deliveries during construction by 80 per cent. The 10-storey structure features 121 flats, proving that a functional apartment complex can be made from engineered wood.

Around the globe, architects are using engineered wood to beautifully climb higher and higher. An 18-storey multi-use building in Brumunddal, Norway, designed by Voll Arkitekter and called Mjøstårnet, took the title of world’s tallest timber building when it completed in March 2019. Last May, architecture firm Perkins&Will proposed a hybrid laminated wood and concrete structure called Canada’s Earth Tower in British Columbia that will stretch between 35 and 40 storeys high. And in Stockholm, Sweden, Anders Berensson Architects unveiled a conceptual housing development of 31 towers constructed from CLT. The new mass timber industry is very much in its infancy, but at its core, wood evokes man’s millennia-long connection to nature. “Have you ever seen anyone embrace a concrete column?” asks Schneider. “No. But I’ve seen people hugging trees. We love this material. Maybe it sounds a little bit kitschy, but it’s the truth.”

LUND SCIENCE CENTER Lund, Sweden Estimated 2024 This sustainable science museum, designed by Danish architects COBE to be fully CO2-neutral, uses CLT as its main material. Other green features include solar cells for power, a plant-filled atrium for CO2 absorption and a system that gathers excess heat from connecting buildings to warm the structure.

ODYSSÉE PLEYEL Paris, France Estimated 2024 French architecture firm Jakob + MacFarlane designed this modular, retractable CLT wood and glass extension to showcase new concepts in sustainable building. A zero-carbon structure, the building powers itself with a greenhouse, solar panels and rechargeable zinc batteries. 1888 The Treasured Values Issue 31

Deep dive The ancient Greek sport of skandalopetra continues to challenge a new generation of divers

T

he oldest freediving discipline in the world, skandalopetra, dates back to Alexander the Great’s time. The tradition grew from ancient Greek fishermen trying to harvest sponge. The fisherman would dive from a boat and his only equipment would be a flat smooth stone with curved edges, called the skandalopetra, which weighed up to 15 kilograms. The diver would be tied to the skandalopetra, which he used to control direction and speed. A second man on the boat pulled up the diver using a rope secured to the skandalopetra.

Today, skandalopetra has transformed into a competitive sport. It started in 1913, when Greek sponge diver Giorgos Haggi Statti dove down 77 metres to tie a line to an anchor the Italian military was trying to recover near the island of Karpathos. In doing so, he set the first world record in free diving; it would be 56 years before his record was broken. Every year, a slew of international diving organisations

arrange global skandalopetra competitions. The sport’s emphasis on purity means minimal equipment. In ancient times divers dove naked. Today, they are allowed to wear only bathing suits, goggles and nose clips. They gather from around the world to see who can plumb the farthest depths. In doing so, they uphold the timeless values of sportsmanship and achieving one’s personal best.

A trusted relationship Carl F. Bucherer partners with the Manta Trust to study manta ray migration threats

I

n 2019, Carl F. Bucherer, for the seventh year running, teamed with the Manta Trust to support its mission to coordinate global research and conservation efforts around manta rays. This time, the brand funded the Manta Trust’s partner Manta Caribbean Project in Mexico. Founder and director Karen Fuentes launched

38-39_BUCH_Manta trustNR_NEW v2.indd 38

the Yucatan Peninsula-based project in 2013 to identify manta ray populations and their migration patterns in the Mexican Caribbean. Every year, manta rays aggregate at a feeding site within the Mexican Caribbean Biosphere Reserve, one of the country’s most important natural protected areas. Researchers are trying to identify additional aggregation hotspots that may not be within the protected sphere in order to study the threats manta rays face at those sites. “We’re not going to save this population if we don’t know where they’re going for the rest of the year or what threats they’re being exposed to throughout the rest of their habitats,” says Manta Trust founder Dr Guy Stevens. Part of Carl F. Bucherer’s funds are used for aerial surveys that help locate the aggregation sites. One of the threats is plastic pollution. Unlike most marine life, mantas are not directly affected by ingesting plastic because they can regurgitate unwanted items from their stomachs. However, plastic can degrade their marine environments. The Manta Trust and its partner organisations work with governments to put protections in place for manta rays,

which are listed as vulnerable by the International Union for Conservation of Nature. They also educate local communities on what they can do to reduce threats to mantas. “We tell them these animals depend on healthy reef systems to survive,” Stevens says. “If you pollute those systems and degrade habitats through destructive practices like unsustainable tourism, that is going to create an unhealthy home for

AND REUSE The Patravi ScubaTec Black Manta Special Edition has a strap partially made from recycled plastic from the sea. Proceeds support the Manta Caribbean Project. One of the animals they study is the black morph manta ray, whose unusual colour variation (mantas most commonly have a combination of white and black markings) only occurs in certain populations. Researchers are trying to figure out what drives these differences. The watch’s bronze-coloured details on the dial, bezel and strap nod to vintage diving tools, and a new DLC-coated titanium case and COSC-certified chronometer ensure technical prowess remains key. “This watch is a positive signal to everyone to think about how the plastics you consume have a negative impact,” says Manta Trust founder Dr Guy Stevens. “Awareness is the most important factor behind reusing these materials.” 1888 The Treasured Values Issue 39

roundbreaking technologies, outstanding craftsmanship and top-notch service have been Carl F. Bucherer’s defining features since its founding in 1888. During the Roaring Twenties, Carl Friedrich Bucherer’s sons Ernst and Carl Eduard Bucherer took the entrepreneurial company to the next level: they started manufacturing their own watches of exceptional technological prowess. Since then, the company has become a unique voice in the watchmaking industry and is beloved by customers worldwide. The business, which three generations later is still run by the Bucherer family, prides itself on its long history of innovation. “We like a challenge, to be pioneers,” says Samir Merdanovic, Head of Manufacture Movement and Customer Service. “We are a true manufacturer of timepieces and our constant quest for technical development and precision is what led to inventions like the CFB A1000 – an automatic movement with a peripheral winding system.” Carl F. Bucherer was the first brand to start series production of this revolutionary technology in 2008. A standard automatic movement winds itself by a centrally placed, V-shaped oscillating weight that winds the main spring when moved. “But

with this system the rotor covers almost 50 per cent of the movement, thus the wearer will never have a full view of it,” Merdanovic says. “A peripheral winding system, on the other hand, places a thin, C-shaped oscillating weight on the periphery of the movement. This makes the watch flatter and provides an unobstructed view of the whole movement.” Another Carl F. Bucherer invention is the Patravi TravelTec. Alongside a chronograph, it features a patented mechanism that allows wearers to set the watch to three different time zones in a userfriendly way – the third time zone can be synchronised by simply pushing the mono pusher located at 10:30. The revolutionary bidirectional automatic winding system with peripheral rotor technology was further refined in the CFB

Above The Heritage Tourbillon DoublePeripheral Limited Edition movement bridge features a handengraving of Chapel Bridge

A2000 movement, which is manufactured in-house and COSC certified. The culmination of this innovative developmental work came in the form of the newest CFB T3000 caliber. The latter took five years to develop and debuted in the Manero Tourbillon DoublePeripheral in 2018. This timepiece launched another patented first for the brand and the watch industry: a floating tourbillon, combining the peripheral automatic winding system with a peripherally mounted tourbillon. The cage of the tourbillon, a mechanism designed to compensate for the effects of gravity on the movement, remains invisible because it is supported peripherally by three ball bearings. This gives the tour-

billon a floating appearance. “This watch’s special feature is that it doesn’t have fixed bridges,” Merdanovic says. “The whole cage is moving around the axis and you can see the movement through the sapphire crystal case back.” So what is it about the company culture that allows for innovation to take place on a regular basis? “Part of it is that we can show we have the technological know-how, a quest for precision as well as mastery of the traditional crafts needed to push the envelope in the Haute Horlogerie tradition,” Merdanovic says. Here we explore the Heritage Collection, which not only exemplifies technology and craftsmanship, but also adds a contemporary touch to classical designs.

Unique engraving The first watch in the Heritage Collection was the Heritage Tourbillon DoublePeripheral Limited Edition. Its handsome retro look is based on the brand’s watches from the 1960s. However, its movement bridge is the pièce de résistance. On it, an 18-karat white gold plate depicts the landmark Chapel Bridge straddling Lake Lucerne. A swan is positioned in a different location on each case back. The animal alludes to Schwanenplatz, where Carl F. Bucherer opened its first boutique. The 18-karat rose gold for the 42.5mm case was chosen to reflect the brand’s expertise in gold, tying

the design back to the company’s proud heritage. “This engraving is unique,” Merdanovic says. “It is very difficult to find specialists who are able to make it.” The brand did, however, find a respected engraver. It took her three weeks per watch to hand-engrave each of the 88 pieces in the limited edition (the number was chosen as a tribute to the company’s founding year). She says that while the entire plate is a work of art, its essence lies in the depiction of Chapel Bridge: “The tower and the bridge are the most crucial parts of the work and the most representative of the story we are telling.”

The Heritage BiCompax Annual Limited Edition debuted in 2019 as the second timepiece in the Heritage Collection. It is a contemporary interpretation of a Carl F. Bucherer 1956 chronograph. The BiCompax, a nod to mid-century chronographs with sleek and sporty designs, comes in two versions. One is a 41mm stainless steel timepiece with a black-and-silver “panda” dial and a black rubber strap. The other comes in two-toned steel and 18-karat rose gold with a cognac brown calfskin strap. Its champagne-coloured dial is similar

to its forerunner, as are its elongated chronograph push buttons. In homage to the company’s founding year, there are 888 pieces each of this limited watch. Technology-wise, the Heritage BiCompax Annual Limited Edition is powered by the new automatic CFB 1972 movement with a power reserve of 42 hours. The chronograph is coupled with a big date annual calendar, which only needs to be set once per year, a function that enhances the practicality of the watch. The outer perimeter of the dial boasts a tachymeter scale that measures

SPECIAL the speed at which an object is moving, and the sapphire crystal case back allows the beauty of the movement to show. “The BiCompax is a great example of the current trend featuring chronographs with two subdials,” Merdanovic says. “And with the annual calendar, the chronograph and the big date, technology is at its forefront.” But the revival of a vintage-inspired look and form might just be the watch’s most outstanding feature. Merdanovic agrees: “I think design, first and foremost, is why people like it.” carl-f-bucherer.com

M

arrying style with substance, Chinese actress and Carl F. Bucherer global brand ambassador Li Bingbing designed the brand’s latest special-edition collection of women’s watches, the Manero AutoDate Love. Proceeds from the elegant timepieces will benefit Li Bingbing’s charitable organisation L.O.V.E. Founded in 2008, the operation works with international charities that help impoverished people, endangered animals and environmental causes. Together, these causes are what Li Bingbing, who is also a United Nations Environment Goodwill Ambassador and WILDAID Global Ambassador, calls “caring for life”. With these charitable undertakings, Li Bingbing hasn’t just lent a helping hand but also encouraged a reevaluation of the public welfare model. The acronym L.O.V.E represents both the reason behind Li Bingbing’s philanthropic work and sums up the principles she holds dear, including leadership, originality, volunteering and education. By staying true to those ideals, the charity so far has helped more than 100 million people worldwide. Now Li Bingbing brings those values to bear in physical form in the Manero AutoDate Love. The nine timepieces are grouped in bold-coloured families of fiery reds, royal purples and cool blues. Each group comes in 18-karat rose gold with a sensual alligator leather strap; in sleek

stainless steel; or a combination of the two. Two of the versions have ultra-feminine diamond-embedded bezels. Li Bingbing chose to feature a pattern of leaves on the watches’ seconds subdial that was influenced by L.O.V.E’s logo: a leaf that represents respect for the integrity of the Earth and its inhabitants, especially women. “The delicate pattern symbolises the multifacetedness of a woman: we can be tough and soft at the same time,” she says. carl-f-bucherer.com

ustainability in all its forms is a treasured value at Carl F. Bucherer. In 2019, the watch brand joined forces with the Baikal Ice Marathon to encourage the preservation of clean water in Lake Baikal, which is the world’s oldest and deepest lake, and contains 20 per cent of the Earth’s total unfrozen freshwater reserve. Held annually in south-eastern Siberia, the Baikal Ice Marathon is part of the wider Winteriad winter games festival. Last year, around 150 participants from 30 countries participated in a run across the frozen lake. Carl F. Bucherer served as the marathon’s partner and official timekeeper. Athletes’ participation fees went towards maintaining the lake, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Additionally, funds from Carl F. Bucherer were used to plant 250 trees in Lake Baikal National Park.

Runners raced 42.2 kilometres across a barren white landscape of ethereal beauty to the opposite lakeshore. Vladimir Voloshin, founder of the international Ironstar triathlon, a four-time Ironman finisher and a Carl F. Bucherer fan, wore the Patravi ScubaTec during the race. In 2017, the ScubaTec was recorded to resist temperatures of -31°C and wind speeds of up to 108 kilometres per hour, making it Voloshin’s ideal running partner for the harsh Siberian weather. baikal-marathon.org

A NEW LOOK Mujinga Kambundji helps inaugurate Carl F. Bucherer’s newly renovated boutique in Interlaken Nestled between two lakes and framed by alpine peaks, the resort town of Interlaken is rightly called the Jewel of the Alps. Adding to the town’s lustre is the Carl F. Bucherer boutique, which underwent an extensive renovation in 2019. Sprinter and brand ambassador Mujinga Kambundji, known as the fastest woman in Switzerland, and CEO Sascha Moeri were on hand to inaugurate the store. Originally opened in 2015, the shop has an updated luxurious ambiance that is in keeping with the brand’s rich heritage. Monochrome walls, dark wood floors and gold accents create a suitably elegant background for the timepieces. Reflecting the company’s family-owned ethos, 80 employees were present to celebrate the new look. Moeri thanked the employees for their efforts during the renovation, which lasted several weeks. Kambundji, who holds the Swiss records in 60m, 100m and 200m, often speaks about her link to the brand’s inspiring legacy. “A Carl F. Bucherer woman knows what she wants and how to get it,” she has said.

“We are delighted to welcome Carl F. Bucherer as a partner to support us in our mission to promote the art of watchmaking around the world”

Carl F. Bucherer has joined the prestigious Fondation de la Haute Horlogerie (FHH) as an official partner. FHH was founded in 2005 to promote and safeguard fine watchmaking worldwide. The industry’s leading think tank recruits new talent, trains specialists in the field and fights product piracy. “We are delighted to welcome Carl F. Bucherer as a partner to support us in our mission to promote the art of watchmaking around the world,” said Pascal O. Ravessoud, International Development Director and Secretary General of the Cultural Council at FHH. “This independent brand has earned its place among the elite names in Haute Horlogerie with its numerous technical innovations over the years.” A partnership with the organisation is a high honour for a watch brand. FHH partners help promote expertise, encourage the exchange of information and protect watchmaking traditions. Carl F. Bucherer has been an FHH member for several years because of its history of innovative design both aesthetic and technical. But the partnership adds another layer of collaboration between the two. “We are proud to have been listed among the top manufacturers recognised by the FHH for some time,” said Carl F. Bucherer CEO Sascha Moeri. “Now, with our official partnership, we are strengthening this commitment, and look forward to making an important contribution to upholding the traditions of Haute Horlogerie and the exchange of information in the sector.” hautehorlogerie.org

MANERO TOURBILLON DOUBLE PERIPHERAL This groundbreaking timepiece boasts a world first: an in-house developed, COSCcertified CFB T3000 movement that combines a peripheral automatic winding system and a peripherally mounted tourbillon that appears to float. The tourbillon cage, placed prominently at 12 o’clock, rotates around its own axis once every minute and has a hand that acts as a seconds display. As stunning as it is tech-savvy, the watch features elegant details like an 18-karat rose gold case and a handsome alligator leather strap that round out the 1960s-inspired look.

Standout feature The stop-seconds function allows for the rotation of the tourbillon cage to be stopped.

58-65_BUCH_PointOfSaleNEW.indd 60

08/11/2019 17:00


HERITAGE BICOMPAX ANNUAL LIMITED EDITION This chronograph, inspired by a vintage Carl F. Bucherer model from 1950, nods to its predecessor with curved lines, elongated push button and the characteristic BiCompax dial with twin registers. It is available in two editions: the first, with its stainless steel and 18-karat rose gold case with a pink- and champagne-coloured dial and cognac-coloured leather strap, most closely resembles the vintage version. The second, dubbed “the panda”, comes in a stainless steel model that boasts a silver dial, black subdials and a structured rubber strap. Each version is limited to 888 pieces in tribute to the brand’s founding in 1888.

Standout feature The BiCompax, like its mid-century predecessor, comes with a speed-measuring tachymeter scale.

PATRAVI SCUBATEC BLACK MANTA Since 2014, Carl F. Bucherer has supported the Manta Trust, a UK-based charity that leads conservation efforts to protect manta rays in more than 20 countries. This diver’s watch is the latest special edition to join the Patravi ScubaTec family and part of its proceeds will go to the Manta Trust. This special edition is an ode to the black manta ray. Two manta ray silhouettes on the black dial are framed by Super-LumiNova indices and hands. The DLC-coated lightweight titanium black case forms a striking contrast with the bronze-coloured bezel and strap stitching inspired by vintage diving equipment.

Standout feature The innovative textile strap developed especially for Carl F. Bucherer is composed mainly of recycled PET bottles from the ocean.

The sophisticated monopusher switch mechanics can be admired through a window on the side of the case, while a simultaneous three time zone display ensures seamless timekeeping no matter where you are in the world.

Standout feature A patented mechanical time zone display enables the user to switch to a third time zone at the touch of a button.

MANERO FLYBACK The Manero Flyback stands out from the Manero family with a unique feature: its sophisticated CFB 1970 chronograph movement with flyback function enables the user to record consecutive times with the shortest possible interval between them. Equally as compelling as the flyback is its 1960s-inspired aesthetic: the 18-karat rose gold case features mushroom-style push buttons. The vintage-flair dial with 10 wedge-shaped applied indices is balanced with more contemporary elements like two silver-coloured totaliser subdials and a tachymeter scale. Bold red lettering, seconds hand and stitching on the kudo leather strap make the timepiece pop.

Standout feature The chronograph hands “fly back” to zero, while the movement continues to run in the background, allowing the hands to resume as soon as the reset button is released.

Carl F. Bucherer designs a oneof-a-kind timepiece to support the Only Watch auction

From top This unique Patravi ScubaTec was specially designed for Only Watch; Diego Benaglio, goalkeeper for AS Monaco FC, admires the Patravi ScubaTec

OLIVIER ANRIGO/GETTY IMAGES

n November 2019, Carl F. Bucherer participated in the Only Watch charity auction. Only Watch was founded by Luc Pettavino, president of the Monaco Association Against Muscular Dystrophy, and is under the patronage of HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco. The organisation funds research into Duchenne muscular dystrophy, a genetic disorder that causes progressive muscle degeneration. Every two years, leading watchmakers create a special timepiece to be auctioned off. Only Watch has raised CHF 40 million for muscular dystrophy research efforts since 2005. Last year, Carl F. Bucherer offered a one-of-a-kind Patravi ScubaTec edition. The 44.6mm case made from 18-karat white gold adds a touch of splendour, while the dial, the unidirectional rotating bezel and the rubber strap in a striking shade of blue enhance the sporty appeal of the diver watch. The silhouettes of eight manta rays – a nod to the number of times Only Watch has been held – grace the dial. To top off the personalisation, the DLC-coated case back boasts an engraving that acknowledges the timepiece was part of Only Watch 2019, a lasting reminder of a good deed. onlywatch.com
