Carl F. Bucherer Patravi ScubaTec Mechanical Watch

Carl F. Bucherer Patravi ScubaTec Mechanical Watch
Introduced in 2014, the Patravi ScubaTec returns in a new execution that matches the functional design of a dive watch with the glimmer of pink gold for the case. A focal point of this uniquely seductive timepiece is the blue and black ceramic that circles the bezel. The dial, meanwhile, is finished with a pattern of scales that reflect the light, much like the shimmer on the surface of the waves.

The Patravi ScubaTec is, of course, at home underwater where it makes the perfect diving buddy for deep-sea exploration, thanks to its 500-metre water resistance. The chronometer-certified movement tracks time with constant precision and reliability while the helium valve automatically depressurises to prevent damage to the case. The unidirectional rotating bezel guarantees optimal security even if the bezel is accidentally knocked. Luminescent hour-markers remain perfectly legible even in murky underwater conditions. The sturdy rubber strap can be adjusted to wear over a diving suit.
