The Manero PowerReserve collection has two new vivid models in limited editions. Unveiled earlier this year at Baselworld, the manufacture model with integrated power reserve now comes in bright midnight blue and luminous pine green.
The Manero PowerReserve runs on the CFB A1011 caliber automatic movement. Part of the CFB A1000 movement family, it’s designed and developed by Carl F. Bucherer, and was first presented in 2008. Its special features include the peripheral oscillating weight winding in both directions, allowing the movement a power reserve of at least 55 hours or more than two full days when fully wound. The remaining power reserve is shown in a semicircular display at 3 o’clock.
The analog power reserve display balances with the digital weekday display at 9 o’clock and is complemented by a big date and small seconds. This design has so far been available in silver and subtle black. Now on offer are two special colored dials; one in midnight blue and one in pine green.
Instead of offering a uniform color, the shade varies continuously, from a deep vivid shade on the edge to a brilliant light color in the center. This soft dégradé color on the dials is achieved by a highly intricate process, producing, literally, the color highlights of the watchmaking industry. Both watches come on calfskin straps that harmonize with the soft tones on the edge of the dial. Both models of the Manero PowerReserve are limited to just 188 models worldwide. The watches will retail at $11,000.
