Carl F. Bucherer has had a successful interaction in the world of film and now takes the next step — a starring role in the Charlize Theron movie Atomic Blonde, which also stars James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella, and Til Schweiger. Just last week in Berlin, Theron and other Hollywood stars, including director of Atomic Blonde and Carl F. Bucherer brand ambassador David Leitch, celebrated at the Berlin premier of the action-packed spy thriller. The film also stars Swiss actor and Carl F. Bucherer ambassador Daniel Bernhardt as the villain. Watches from Lucerne-based Carl F. Bucherer play a role, but for now that role is top secret.
“Hollywood makes dreams come true on the big screen; our watches make dreams come true on your wrist,” says Sascha Moeri, CEO of Carl F. Bucherer. “David Leitch, who has been a partner of ours for many years, has produced another incredible movie with Atomic Blonde. We are delighted that our watches also play a starring role in the movie.” In fact, during the Berlin red carpet premier, Carl F. Bucherer even had a watchmaker’s bench and a watchmaker on the red carpet.
Carl F. Bucherer was founded in 1888 in Lucerne and remains today a privately owned watch brand with global renown. Today, the brand is headed by third-generation Jörg G. Bucherer. The brand produces top-quality watches and movements in its workshops, and has a host of other involvements beyond the cinema. In fact, the brand is also conservation minded and is helping to save the Manta Rays. You can read more about that here. Also, stay tuned for more details on Atomic Blonde.
