The Techy & Innovative Automatic Caliber CFB A1000 Watch Movement From Carl F. Bucherer Manero Flyback Replica Watch Releases

Don’t worry that there is no watch to go with this movement yet. The caliber CFB A1000 is a really nice little machine on it’s own. A few months ago I got a chance to mess around with it in person. The first thing you notice about it, is that it looks very little like most mechanical movements that you have seen. There is a distinctive ‘circuit board’ look to it, that commands a more modern perspective than the classic nature of most mechanical movements. This really represents taking the tried and true idea of mechanical movements and using extremely sophisticated computer design means of producing and improving upon very old principles.

When I mentioned to the Carl F. Bucherer reps that this was a very technical looking design, they agreed that it was the approach they were taking. Juxtaposing elegant curves, for strong angles. Best of all, it is a movement that is meant to exist in a watch that is only very expensive, rather than astronomically expensive. From a fit and finish standpoint, it is really top notch. How did I play with a movement outside of a watch? Good question. Watch makers place them in little plastic or metal housings that simulate a watch case housing, without any of the watch parts.

Carl F. Bucherer worked with Techniques Horlogères Appliquées (THA) based in Sainte-Croix to develop the movement. Inside are 29 Jewels with a 55 hour power reserve, with 30mm wide by 4.8mm high dimensions. While the movement looks very modern, most of the components are pretty standard high grade quality, so nothing worth mentioning that is special in that department. I am a bit disappointed that the movement only beats at 21,600 bph, which is relatively low as most high-end movements beat at 28,000 bph. This might have to do with the new shock absorption system.

The CFB A1000 does have two very cool innovations though. They are a special escapement shock absorption system, and a rotor for the automatic winding system that does not obstruct the view of the movement. The shock absorbing system is pretty cool. Two spring loaded arms hold the escapement in place. If the movement, and thus escapement experience a shock, the harsh movements will be absorbed through the arms, thus helping to protect the delicate escapement.

One of the major reasons that manually wound movements still exist, is that watch lovers enjoy viewing the movement operating. The necessary weighted rotor in the (more practical) automatic movement really gets in the way of a detailed full view of the movement in operation. This is one of the reasons watch makers in the past have utilized the ‘mini rotor.’ The Carl F. Bucherer CFB A1000 takes a different approach. The entire rotor is placed on the periphery of the movement, with the winding gear placed closer to the edge of the movement. The rotor takes the form of a ring instead of a half circle, and is heavily weighed on one end to facilitate oscillation (likely weighted with brass).

This special ring rotor, in addition to looking great, provides the best of both worlds, allowing for a great unobstructed view of the movement, along with having the immense convenience of an automatic winding movement. Nice work Carl. F. Bucherer. Oh, and by the way, remember how I said that worked with Techniques Horlogères Appliquées to development the movement? Apparently Carl F. Bucherer was so impressed with them, they just bought up the 17 person company. Look for the CFB A1000 automatic movement to appear in Carl F. Bucherer watches soon.

F Bucherer introduced their first in-house motion together with the caliber A1000 (debuted on aBlogtoWatch here). Since that time the A1000 (with its trendy peripheral automatic rotor) and its derivatives have been the basis of many Patravi collection timepieces. That’s because the very first Patravi TravelTec GMT view was released in 2006, also later in this “FourX” version. Though it doesn’t strictly have an in-house motion, it does specially change the base ETA, offering something unique.To be honest, when I first detected that the Patravi TravelTec GMT FourX I wasn’t in enjoy it with. I felt that the layout was a bit all over the place and the dial was overly difficult to read. That was at first glance and after wearing the lookout for a nice long time I’ve come to quite enjoy it. It’s not a timepiece without its quirks, but it satisfies in a lot of sections, and I surprisingly did not find it that hard to read.It is true that at a glance the hands are tough to spot on the dial if you’re only taking a look at the dial generally. Though for me I moved to examine the dial so as to read the time that I never had much trouble. It is similar to the dial of several Breitling timepieces because they’re somewhat active compared to other watches, but there’s a method to their madness. If you fancy the TravelTec GMT FourX in all respects other than the dialup, then it is possible to elect for the non-FourX edition that does not have a skeletonized dial. The FourX model is much more costly but in may ways creates the piece a lot more intriguing than the sum of its parts.
