A Year Gone By
Thursday - 14 January 2016
Reflecting on the past year is a natural process as the New Year begins. Analysing the 12 months with a fine tooth comb feeling proud of your accomplishments and sadness for losses and regrets is common. The Bucherer Watch Award 2015 is based on the same principle of evaluating the technical genius of the years watches and awarding excellence with the title.

Jean-Jaques Weber, the exclusive distributor of Frederique Constant in France states: “I am very glad and proud that Frederique Constant has won the Bucherer Watch Award. This victory consecrates “the Frederique Constant attitude”. The Horological Smartwatch powered by MotionX® by Frederique Constant is the first Swiss Made connected watch to have ever been marketed. Even to this very day, it is the only one that can be delivered.
