Three time zones combined in one watch made in an exquisite and distinctive material: the Patravi TravelTec by Carl F. Bucherer in deep matt black, new for Baselworld 2016. The robust DLC coating transforms the GMT chronograph into a grand statement on your wrist, designed not to blend in but to impress.
Comfortable functionality, excellent readability, and technological sophistication make the Patravi TravelTec the ideal model for frequent travelers. This timepiece, new for Baselworld 2016, is guaranteed to steal the show: the Swiss watchmaker completely immerses the model in imposing black, emphasizing the diamond-like-carbon finish on the stainless steel case and wristband.
A hard shell in deep matt black.
The DLC finish elaborately applied in a multi-stage process fully embraces the durability and lightness of carbon. The wafer-thin, diamond-like crystalline carbon structure ensures the watch is particularly scratch-resistant and highly shock absorbent. The compelling deep matt black color of this timepiece is created by the unique blend of carbon material. The striking design is rounded off with a black dial offering a clear display of contrasting light-colored totalizators, indices, and scales.
A smart core with manufacture caliber.
The intelligent interplay between the case and movement makes the Patravi TravelTec a superb travel companion able to display three time zones simultaneously. Two time zones are visible on the dial thanks to the sophisticated functions of the own chronometer-certified CFB 1901.1 caliber. The third time zone is displayed via a red 24 hour-hand on a rotating bezel. The patented monopusher enables the wearer to quickly and easily set the third time zone to an eastern or western direction of travel.
