WDS Carl F. Bucherer Adamavi FullCalendar
The Adamavi collection from Carl F. Bucherer features a diverse range of timepieces, with watches as simple as the Adamavi Autodate at 2,500 and golden masterpieces like the full gold version costing 18,800. The unifying factor thru the models is that they all have a classy, simple, modern elegance. Thats also true of the latest addition to the collect, the Adamavi FullCalendar, which brings two new functions to the range and is the most complicated Adamavi to date.
The modern styling of the FullCalendar is refined yet understated: the plain, satin finished dial, available in black or white, makes the calendar function easy to read by offering great clarity and legibility. The hours are denoted with simple gold bar indices and matching gold hands for a welcome dash of colour.
The full calendar complication, which takes up a large portion of the face, is the first of the new additions to the Adamavi line and has been executed with class. The dates are clustered in a ring around the centre of the dial and the days of the week and the month are visible through windows at the 10 and 2 oclock positions, meaning that despite being the primary complication, the dial remains uncluttered and clean.
Nestled inside the ring of dates is a moonphase, the second of the Adamavis new functions. The moon, depicted in gold, travels thru a star-filled sky, giving the full cycle from new moon to full moon. It adds a little bit of sparkle, in combination with the hands and indices, to an otherwise plain looking watch and really brings it all together.
There isnt one possible calendar function missing from this watch: you have the month, the date, the week and position in the moon cycle, all on top of the regular hours, minutes and seconds. Its very user-friendly as well with four separate correctors embedded in the bezel to allow for easy adjustment. When they decided to call this piece the FullCalendar, they meant it.
The nicest thing about this timepiece is that it feels like a watch you could wear every day if you wanted to. It isnt overly ostentatious with a 39mm stainless steel case, which houses the CFB 1966 automatic movement with 42-hour power reserve. Throw in a consideration for your choice of black or white dial colour and alligator leather strap or stainless steel bracelet and it also has a fair amount of personalisation.
The only drawback is that for pricing information you will have to contact Carl F. Bucherer and its not likely to be cheaper than anything already in the Adamavi line-up, such as the 16,200 gold, because its substantially more technical. For that kind of money, you might want something that shouts about it a bit more than the reserved FullCalendar, but if subtlety is your style its hard to find much to criticise about it.
