astrum3d...Hello. I have owned / worked on several in the last 25 years...I've always liked them, and respected their 'ethos'. All of the Bucherer's I've seen, have used other Manufacturer's movements--usually, ETA--and they did so nicely.
I like them, and it's nice to see that they're doing well! Michael.

Here's a discussion of some of their technology, it discusses the peripheral rotor, but note that the patent mentioned is for a subcomponent:
