What I think about it?

A dual functional bracelet. A watch and a bracelet in one. Once it was considered not appropriate for a lady to watch the time in public. Although the idea behind the watch does not account anymore, I think it is still a genius piece of jewelry.

Maison de Bucherer

In 1888 Carl-Friedrich Bucherer, businessman and industrialist opened his first watch and jewelry store in Lucerne, Switzerland. In 2013 the family owned business celebrated their 125 jubilee. Today, third generation Jörg G. Bucherer leads the Bucherer Group and employs some 1500 people worldwide. The name Bucherer is well known beyond the borders of Switzerland and stands for quality at the very highest level. Their creations are designed and handcrafted in their own workshops and enjoy worldwide renown. See for more information my blog.
