Two Swiss manufacturers – watch company Carl F. Bucherer and the jewelry brand Bucherer Jewelery (also part of the family Bucherer Group), together with the Harley-Davidson Bunderbike workshop, specializing in customizing motorcycles, presented a unique motorcycle – Harley-Davidson Blue Edition.
Taking as a basis the regular model of the chopper-cruiser Harley-Davidson Softail S. in the vintage style, the specialists created for him an individual design and finish, each part of it being manufactured, welded, fastened and polished by hand.

The main frame of the motorcycle is welded seamlessly, the rims are also created individually, the cowhide saddle is sewn by hand in the special workshop, and the individual parts of the bike are covered in yellow gold.
But the main “trick” of this ultra-lux vehicle is in its name, or rather in the word Blue. This is an iridescent intense blue color of the case, the signature color of watchmakers and jewelers and Lucerne, in which seventeen unique watch models from the Blue series Edition. As a coating for a motorcycle, this shade was obtained due to a specially developed technique of complex overlapping of six layers of paint colors, the bottom of which was silver and only the upper ones were blue.

In the left part of the motorcycle fuel tank in a special recess under armored glass is placed the Heaven ring from Bucherer diamond jewelers with a 5.4-carat diamond
And, finally, for the first time in the body of this model of the motorcycle were incorporated a wristwatch and jewelry. Two rotating rings of diamonds from the Dizzler collection of the Bucherer brand were placed on the front fork of the motorcycle, at the same distance from the rudder, in place of the traditional screws. And a couple of similar rotating diamond circles decorates the edges of the handles or “flu” handles.
In the left part of the fuel tank was made a special groove with a diamond rim outside: in it under the armored glass is placed the Heaven ring with a colorless diamond of 5.4 carats.
A team of eight narrow specialists from both companies worked on the creation of Harley-Davidson Blue Edition whole year
On the other side of the tank, in a similar recess lie a special wristwatch Patravi TravelTec II – the dial of the model is decorated with elements similar to the components of the motorcycle engine. And in order to avoid the effect of the speed and vibration of the real engine on the clockwork Carl F. Bucherer watches are placed in special flint pendant “snares”, which simultaneously wind the mechanism, which is important when the bike is not on the move, but, say, in the garage.
A team of eight narrow specialists from both companies worked for a year to create the Harley-Davidson Blue Edition. The implementation took 2,500 hours of work. A one-of-a-kind model costs 1.888 million Swiss francs and is by far the most expensive motorcycle in the world.
