The watchmaking industry has no shortage of remarkable players, from sports to casual timepieces as well as jewelry watches, with brands that spring more than the rest. The name Bucherer is perhaps more known for intricate work in and refinement of precious stones and metals, but like its contemporaries, has made quite an investment in horology. The style of the finished jewelry from Bucherer is also shared with that of Carl F. Bucherer’s—classy and with a muted appeal, something that is not guilty of trying too hard in seeking attention. Its Adamavi collection, showcasing the watchmaker’s attention to detail and penchant for elegance, is a tangible evidence of this.

Carl F. Bucherer borrows Adamavi from Latin, which, when translated to English, either means to love or to enjoy something. It is only apt for the collection, because despite its simplicity, the commitment to timeless design will make you grow fond of its timepieces and take pleasure out of them being on your wrist. The Adamavi Automatic is no exception, with Bucherer betting on aesthetics that is clear cut and will outlive trends, as well as reliability in telling the time.

The Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi Automatic is beautiful as it is functional, with the main attraction being the dial. The watchmaker keeps it to the essentials by limiting what you see on it to the hands, markers and the date, which is just what most people need from their watches. Its clutter-free space makes it easy to tell the time in an instant and without fuss, as the Adamavi Automatic’s movement removes the need to consistently wind the watch. Even when slipping it on your wrist when in a hurry, your mind can be put at ease by its versatility—it’s easy to match with most of what’s in your wardrobe and its small dimensions allow you to cover it with your cuffs effortlessly. Bucherer puts on display the movement it has rigorously tested at Lucerne through the transparent, anti-reflective sapphire crystal at the back. You can get all these at a very competitive price, even lower than what most luxury watch brands of comparable specs are offering.
In paper, the 39mm case width may simply be smaller than what is desirable for some buyers. This may not be entirely a deal-breaker, though—some have commented that the dial’s design can easily make others believe that it is a larger watch than it really is.
