Our history began in 1888, when merchant and entrepreneur Carl-Friedrich Bucherer opened the first specialist watch and jewellery store in Lucerne together with his wife, Luise, thereby laying the foundations for a successful family business.
The sons of Carl-Friedrich and Luise Bucherer joined the family business at the beginning of the 1920s. Thanks to their wealth of experience, Ernst and Carl Eduard Bucherer led the business to even greater success. Ernst Bucherer entered into a particularly fruitful partnership with Hans Wilsdorf, the founder of Rolex, in 1924, adding the watch brand – which at the time was barely established – to the Bucherer range. Today, Rolex is one of the most famous watch brands in the world and remains Bucherer’s most important partner.
The Bucherer success story continued in the same vein despite the crises of the 1930s and the Second World War. The family business opened branches in further Swiss towns and tourist destinations. In 1977, management was taken over by the third generation of the founding family: under Jörg G. Bucherer, the business expanded into Austria in the 1980s, and then into Germany some 10 years later.
In Switzerland, Bucherer acquired the Kurz Group in 1989, and, in 2001, Swiss Lion AG. The separate company Carl F. Bucherer was also founded in 2001, continuing the Bucherer family’s watchmaking tradition that stretches back to 1919.
