After its international launch, fueled by obsessive creativity and a passion for precious and rare watchmaking craftsmanship, the Charles Zuber brand is already presenting a new creation at Watches & Wonders Geneva. A skeletonization realized in collaboration with the Genevan guardian.
of traditional material work, Cédric Johner. It is with this dynamic in mind that Charles Zuber’s Perfos watch has been transformed, stripped bare and opened up: the Perfos KARL is born!
The design of the Perfos KARL is resolutely contemporary and perfectly suited to lovers of style, strong design codes and extraordinary watchmaking expertise. Its dial, with its intensely metallic hue thanks to a galvanic deposit of satin-finished, hand-sunlit ruthenium, reveals the inner workings of the watch with breathtaking brilliance. The dial is surrounded at its centre by a halo of 36 baguette-cut orange sapphires (0.8 carats) placed in the round as a focal point, contrasting with the rose gold hands. The shiny black alligator strap is hand-finished.
A signature watch, a tribute to “Karl”
Born on 29 January 1932 in Kriens in the canton of Lucerne in Switzerland, Zuber’s first name was Karl (Charles in German). It was only later, in 1952, after his return from the army, that Karl Zuber decided to become a goldsmith and moved from his hometown to Geneva and decides to give a French tone to his first name: Karl Zuber becomes Charles Zuber.
