Who is Bucherer?
Bucherer is a private company headquartered in Switzerland, with a history dating back to 1888, when businessman and entrepreneur Carl-Friedrich Bucherer opened the first professional watch and jewelry store in Lucerne. As the business grew, Bucherer became one of the first Rolex retailers in 1924 and remains Bucherer’s most important partner. After World War II, business continued to grow, and the family business opened branches in other Swiss towns and tourist destinations.

In Switzerland, Bucherer acquired Kurz Group in 1989 and Swiss Lion AG in 2001. The independent company Carl F. Bucherer was also established in 2001, continuing the watchmaking tradition of the Bucherer family dating back to 1919. In 2013, Bucherer opened the world’s largest watch and jewellery store in Paris-this is your must visit and love watch in Paris.
