    Don’t worry if you miss a day: each of the competitions will remain open until midnight (Swiss time) on 24th December. All the winners will be drawn at the end of the competition and will be notified by e-mail.

    The WorldTempus Advent Calendar includes gifts to suit all tastes. A few examples: travel bags and leather wallets from Raymond Weil and Ulysse Nardin, a leather pouch from Zenith, a jewellery box from Wolf, a Caran d'Ache pen, Swiss Kubik watch winder, Michel Vaillant comic book offered by Rebellion, "Th! bleu" set from Bulgari, HYT yachting jacket, sports kits from Eberhard & Co. including a wheeled suitcase, a t-shirt, polo shirt and sweatshirt and the “Authorised Biography of Patek Philippe”. And those are just some of the gifts – the are many other surprises.

    Win a Carl F. Bucherer weekend bag in brown leather

    What does the champagne colour of the dial on the Manero Flyback refer to?

    - Champagne bubbles for celebration
    - Gold, which is the favourite colour of Carl F. Bucherer
    - The neo-retro style that is currently in vogue

    From here: http://en.worldtempus.com/article/industry-news/brands/carl-f-bucherer-manero-flyback-24957.html

    The Manero Flyback with a champagne dial is an elegant ambassador for Lucerne, a city that is home to stunning baroque buildings. A shimmering golden champagne tone is used as the base color of the galvanized dial, while a more intense gold tone is used for the chapter ring and the two subdials. The hands and ten appliqu!d indices feature the same rose gold tone as the case – as on the model with the black dial.


    So the answer seems to relate to Lucerne which isn't an option.

    I agree with Emily K based on this:


    http://www.carl-f-bucherer.com/en/news/%E2%80%9Cdistinctly-golden%E2%80%9D-baselworld-2016


    "The new brand look is reminiscent of the precious heritage of Carl F. Bucherer and lends its golden radiance to the unique strengths of the brand. The gold is derived from the Baroque-influenced architecture that gives the home city of Lucerne its special character. A minimalist look that pays tribute to the strong roots of the Swiss watchmaker – in both a discreet and prominent manner."

    I'm confused, what's the answer.

    You can please some of the people some of the time, all of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time but you can never please all of the people all of the time

    Gold is definitely the answer, by process of elimination.
    There is no reference anywhere to the term neo-retro style, nor champagne bubbles.

    "Its gold and champagne-colored surface coordinates flawlessly with the warm rose gold of the case and is in complete harmony with the Manufacture's new golden brand identity that was launched last year."

    where it says:
    The Lucerne firm’s star-chronograph is clothed in rose gold and champagne to celebrate the festive season and to mark 2017 in a neo-retro spirit

    and

    Arranged in a “champagne” dial (a bronze yellow typical of the middle of the 20th century which is becoming increasingly fashionable)....

    From HERE
    The Manero Flyback with a champagne dial is an elegant tribute to the brand's favourite colour, gold.
    So the middle one is the answer!

    An inch of time is an inch of gold, but you cannot buy that inch of time with an inch of gold.
